Mad Max - the Toecutters helmet
Just stumbled upon this amazing shot of the prosthetic head and bulging eyes of the Toecutter from Mad Max. Its used with permission of MadMaxonline.com, who's links below.
Even though the shot in the film was a matter of few frames, it always bugged me how unreal it looked (much like the clearly painted slab of hardboard stuck to the front of the lorry at the end of Mad Max 2).
But seeing it here out of context, it actually looks really good doesn't it?
That's the original helmet too - complete with nifty Kali statue.
Pleased to see both are safe and being cared for.
