As promised, here are a few photos of my previous Imperious Leader replica mask compared to the better one made by Skullbeast:

That is very interesting ....Who made the mask on the right? although similar, many differences....But I have to say my vote is for the Skullbeast mask......They look like they could be related.....from different IL families....What do you think?

Yes, they do look related. Double trouble. :shock: :shock:

So, how to they match up in other ways? Are they about the same weight? Do they both have LEDs for lights? I see the box on Skullbeast's... you can dim the eyes, your original mask has just the battery snap is - it just on/off?

And then how are they to wear... one have better vision or air flow than the other?

The previous mask was filled with foam to guarantee an optimal fit. So it's a lot heavier than Skullbeast's version.

The eyes on the old mask can only be switched on, no dimming. Small bulbs painted green were used for making the lights.

About the vision: Point to Skullbeast again. It's also more comfortable to wear since you'll have more room inside.

Really!? I would have thought there was more room in your first mask as it seems larger... but the foam you noted must take up all the space. The crafty Skullbeast hit one out of the park! Awesome stuff.

Thank you for all the pics and info Red Eye!

I am glad you posted these because I was wondering what the difference between the two were. Skullbeast wins hands down.
