Someone leaked a picture of a mask.
Someone else said that it was the mask Cobra Commander will wear in the movie.
I don't know if this is true or not. For all I know this mask could have absolutley nothing to do with Cobra Commander.
However, if you will bear with me, I want to illustrate a point.
I know that we're just whiny fanboys whose opinions don't matter in the final estimation in regards to making this film. Don't bother to write me anymore essays about how my opinion as a fan of GI Joe doesn't have any bearing on how a movie about GI Joe gets made.
I get it.
Just tell me this:
If the Commander were only to wear ONE mask throughout this movie (not that he does, but IF...) which of the following would you prefer?
A. Mirrored Battlemask-
C. This (presumably painted)-
D. Fred VII Battle Armor-
I'm just sayin'...
UPDATE: I'm bumping this thread as a message to those who discredited it.
I KNEW something was seriously wrong with CC's mask. In the very first post in this thread I stated clearly that what ended up being the Viper (not to be confused with the NEO-VIPER) mask MAY OR MAY NOT be CC's mask.
Now that we've all had a look at CC's REAL mask, I'll bet some of us would have preferred the Viper mask.
I made all of this noise back when I did because there was still time to make noise and get some changes made.
I was shouted down. A lot of people were more interested in arguing than listening and it was suggested that we were better off not making any noise at all about how we felt about CC's appearance. I couldn't understand this complacency and I was mad, but many of my comments were shouted down and I even had a thread deleted.
I know that this is going to piss a few people off, though that's not my intention.
My purpose here is to effectively demonstrate that, if we had the courage and the bold indignation to make our opinions known in a very loud and clear way, we may have made a real difference. We may have made a change. I site the example of Megatron's head being changed. Unfortunately I didn't have a photograph to spark anger across the web as we had with Megatron.
That said, we MAY (conceivably) have a chance to make a difference now. More likely, as these combat heroes demonstrate, the toys have been pressed and the film has been shot. Still, if we make enough noise I PROMISE YOU THAT IT WILL IMPACT THE SEQUEL.
And make no mistake, there WILL be a sequel.
If you don't believe me, unless you PREFER the new mask, I would politely ask you to just stand aside and LET US MAKE SOME NOISE.

If i had to choose one I'd go with the hood. Hood or Chrome Dome either or, those are his signature looks. It'd be nice if he turned out something like this......
That's always been my favorite depiction of him. Sinister and bad ass.
I really hope that pic. floating around of that Mortal Combat "Baraka" looking mask turns out to be something else and is not CC.

The chrome dome is just cheese and wouldn't fit with the movie style, the hood is classic and looks really good. It would eb my choice.

Classic battlemask has always been Cobra Commanders best look. The chances we'll see it in the movie are slim, but we'll see, who knows what will happen in the sequals. I've never been a huge fan of the hood, but I don't hate it. That leaked mask looks cool, but just not for CC. I've always like the Fred VII Batlle Armor but CC wore it for what, 2 issues?

hood, then when battle starts, get out the battle mask.

i hope that is not profetic.

THAT's what our august commander may look like??? After seeing Snake-Eye's duds, It's difficult to summon up any optimistic doubt.
I had to go with the mirrored battle mask. In my opinion, It's the greatest piece of villanous headgear ever devised. It reveals absolutely nothing, giving the looker only his own reflection to look apon.

Classic battle mask, simple, nostalgic, and served a purpose in the comic. Not to mention, kept his identity hidden. It made sense too, if forcibly removed, it had a self destruct mechanism. In battle it shielded his head.

Mirrored Battlemask that is what defines Cobra Commander.
