The 10 Best Helmets In The Game

I have a weird obsession with helmets. I just think they’re… cool. Maybe it’s the mystery factor they bring to the badass people/characters that wear them. Or maybe I’m just really into protecting your noggin. Either way, get ready for your head to explode because here are the 10 best helmets EVER!

____

10. Boba Fett

My personal favorite character in Star Wars, Boba Fett wears a unique green and red helmet with a recognizable dent. If you’re curious about what dented Boba Fett’s helmet, check this out.

9. Deadmau5′s mau5head

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival 2010 - Day 1

Reminiscent of Daft Punk (who show up later in the list), Deadmau5′s mau5head lights up to his beats and brings some awesome theatrics to EDM. Describing the first time he wore it, he says, “I remember putting it on and looking out of the visor and seeing everyone in utter bewilderment. They were like, Who is this guy? Is he for real? But they warmed up to it real fast. When the lights came on in the helmet and they started blinking to the beat, the place went crazy.”

8. The Original Tron helmets

The original Tron helmets were actually made of Cooper SK 2000/2001 Hockey Helmets. “It seems to bring peace to me,” said Jeff Bridges of the awesome helmet he wore in the 1982 movie.

____

7. MF Doom

Okay, so it’s technically a mask and not a helmet, but MF (Metal Face) Doom’s face piece is epic. For the full story behind the evolution of various masks he wore to conceal his identity, check out this video.

6. ZyuRangers

[GUIS] Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger- 46 (C73D57D3).mkv_snapshot_01.42_[2012.11.25_21.30.20]

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were based on the original Japanese ZyuRangers. Each color had its own unique design – I especially love the Red Ranger, who had teeth surrounding the visor.

5. Sara Anderson’s Thor Helmet In Adventures In Babysitting

Thor-obsessed Sara Anderson donned this helmet throughout the entire movie, until she actually met Thor (a young Vincent D’Onofrio) and tossed him her most prized possession. When I saw this movie I had no idea that Thor was a real comic book superhero, but I loved Sara for being the ultimate fangirl.

____

4. Easy Rider

Peter Fonda’s iconic Captain America motorcycle helmet created such a classic image of cool. Jack Nicholson’s was… not so much.

____

3. The Rocketeer

The Rocketeer’s helmet was beautifully designed and oh so retro.

____

2. Daft Punk

This, this, and this. Oh, and can’t wait for this.

____

1. Robocop

You thought it was going to be Darth Vader, didn’t you? Nope, too predictable. The #1 spot goes to 1987′s Robocop – part man, part machine, all cop… and all helmet.
