Why do some villains have to look like utter fools? Was it something in their childhood that twisted their psyches like creeper vines, choking out not only the decency in their hearts, but also their ability to dress themselves appropriately? Take a look at Headman here, and tell me that any of his henchmen aren’t laughing every time he enters a room. He looks like the Sith Lord version of the Godfathers Pizza guy.
The saddest part of the Headman’s look is that his troops are some of the most imposing designs of the 90’s era. Both the Headhunters and Headhunter Stormtroopers are excellent molds that hark back to the glory days of fearsome enemy designs.
Strangely enough, the character’s design in the DIC series was a bit more tasteful, and he was outfitted in a dark suit, glasses and cape. Maybe they just didn’t have the budget to animate all those gold pinstripes. I can’t believe I just implied that a DIC design was tasteful, coming from the same series that gave us Billy Blaster and his nipple star.
If there’s a saving grace to this figure, it’s…um…uh…
Hey, have you read my post about ’85 Flint?
