Destro mask concept

08.04.2009

G.I. JOE director Stephen Sommers has posted this interesting bit of concept art over on his website. It shows illustrator Matt Codd’s take on the classic Destro mask, and Sommers says he gave him old JOE comics and action figures to work off of. The finished product is supposed to look a lot like this, which would imply that this alleged screenshot of the mask might not be as legit as we thought.

The mask looks very imposing to be sure, though I’m hoping the real prop has some eye holes, or else Christopher Eccleston will don the mask, stumble around blindly, then suffocate to death onscreen. Not exactly the most honorable way for a supervillain to go.

The Destro mask is fine, but I think what we’re all really anxious to see is what Cobra Commander looks like, as the first glimpses of his mask are a bit discouraging say the least.

Extra Tidbit: I'm seriously considering dressing up as Snake Eyes for the office Halloween party this year. There's no law against bringing a katana to work right?

Considering that Paramount's decided not to hold press screenings prior to G.I. Joe's release, I suspect this flick is probably taking the A train to Suckville.

"Sommers says he gave him old comics and action figures to work off of."
What the hell else would you ask for artists of a GI Joe film? My god people are we that desperate? Wait a week, see District 9, or go track down Moon: one of the best of the year. Every article that keeps coming out in defense of this piece of shit is proclaiming elements that should be in a GI Joe film. What, you want a cookie Sommers? I miss James Thoo!

stop crying!! lets face it people...if they keep with the Village people look of GI Joe...it wouldve been worse. It's sad cuz either way this film wouldve got backlash from fans and viewers alike..there is no way to make a Dark Knight-like GI Joe film( which I believe everyone wants). So far the reviews have been decent...and even if it ok...its a 100000x better than the crap Transformers 2. And it's summer....

This Destro Mask Looks Decent Enough

But yeah, the Cobra commander one looks like crap from everything I've seen so far.

cobra commander

it doesn't look bad to me at all...kind of like a mixture between his metal mask (the metal part) and the hooded mask (the eye holes).
