OK, that sculpt is absolutely diabolical! And I mean that as a complement. Another home run for Moebius!

As for the helmet, it will probably be in the final kit. What we're looking at here is likely a resin copy of the original sculpt. I'm not terribly familiar with resin casting, but it may simply be too difficult to cast up a nice, perfectly clear dome. We may not see the helmet until Moebius gets a test shot back from the factory.

It looks slightly rough around the respirator type thing on the front neck area so you could be right. I suppose the helmet will require a different type of tooling to the other parts.

It does look pretty cool, and the helmet would be a solid color as it is a prototype and you would not be able to see the martians head thru it if it were in place I would imagine...hence, no helmet.:)
Too bad there was not a box mockup of the prisoner. I have one on order JUST for the FL box!

Just a little disappointed that the base is a single-piece mold (I'd love it if the victim was a separate assembly), but heck, the cool Martian is the point.
