Boba Fett Spartan Helmet: This is BOBAAA!!!

by


King Leonidas and his army of 300 don’t have a lot in common with Boba Fett. The Spartans were patriotic soldiers (HAA-OOH!). Boba was a bounty hunter. The Spartans refused to bow down to a (fictionalized) man who fancied himself a god and paraded around with more jewels than clothes. The Mandalorian had no problems working for a slug-like crime lord who did walk around naked. The Spartans only had their helmet and shield to protect them. Boba was covered from head-to-toe, and had a freakin’ jetpack too. The Spartans were actual people, and Fett is a fictional clone. But none of that matters when you see this helmet:

According to Big Shiny Robot, this helmet was made by Jon Wollack of After Dark Productions. I’m pretty sure Wollack considered none of the crap that I mentioned above, and only thought of two things before getting to work – the helmets do look a bit similar, and they were both worn by bad ass warriors. Good enough reasons to create an awesome mashup.

    Only in the movie did the spartans only wear a helmet and shield. They used quite a bit of armor that was layered as to make it as resistant to piercing as possible as well as protecting from crushing attacks.

    The movie 300 is the perfect example of a oral history. The animals are much larger and more grotesque and the enemy is much more powerful than it was in real life. Although, it’s hard to believe that you could exagerate the amount of enemies the 300 had at the time.
