No one can say that the blockbuster movie "300" was an
amazing visual treat. The movie was astounding to
watch. But as hard as Director Zack Snyder tried to
stay true to the graphic novel, there's only so much
you can do with film. So, the helmets and armor that
you saw in movie were fantastic props, but they really
weren't 100 percent true to the ones in the original
graphic novel. Well, Windlass has just made up for
this discrepancy by releasing the King Leonidas
Spartan Crested Helmet, an exact copy of the helmet
from Frank Miller's graphic novel "300."
This helmet is a magnificent piece of artwork. It's a
stylized version of a Spartan helmet, complete with
artistic curves and heroic flares. It is the comic
book version of King Leonidas' mighty helmet. It is
Leonidas as superhero, and we mean that in the best
This fully wearable helmet is made from steel, with a swirling
overcoat of multihued brass that looks a lot like
bronze. It is pitted and scarred as a battle helmet
should be, and bears the thickest, most impressive
horsehair crest that we have ever seen. It also
features a cool overhang-neckguard on the back,
something notably missing from the movie versions. The
helmet itself has a polished, professionally crafted
look that you don't get from most of the helmets on
the market. It has a very solid, very powerful feel,
but retains the small finishing touches that truly
show quality; beveled and rolled edges, softened
corners and a silky finish on all surfaces.
The inside of the helmet is as luxuriant as the
outside. A thin black foamy coating covers the entire
inside of the helmet, making for an extremely
comfortable fit. A first-rate adjustable black leather
liner makes for a snug fit and a leather adjustable
chin strap secures the helmet to you noggin.
The helmet comes with an extremely attractive wood
display stand, screenprinted with abstract graphics
and logo from the graphic novel. This helmet is already
