This is the first time we're getting a look at him with his helmet on, which seems to be to be the only part of the costume really inspired by the original.
I think that going with black was a bad idea. And doing it matte black was an even worse idea. But, maybe on-screen it will look better.
Now, I'm assuming that NECA will be producing figures for the movie, but it really does remain to be be seen . I guess it just depends on if the studio wants a massive flood of crap for the toy shelves, or a single awesome figure that is sheer perfection.
I'm also assuming that a Hot Toys figure is inevitable as well.
