    that is a high cut or fast helmet, a military helmet designed so the user can wear a comm headset with the helmet.

    Just went to bid on some things and all is gone. Pathetic. Now you just wait for it to pop up on eBay for a third of the prices. Stupid Americans always buying shit then selling it. Here’s a hint. Don’t buy and lose money on stuff that you shouldn’t even own.

    Fair enough it was a Netflix exclusive but can anyone tell me why they name so many things as Netflix originals that really aren't?

    You'd think Adam would be more familiar with FAST helmets and modern combat shirts/pants.

      Right, but OPS-CORE and Crye are brands/companies. I was keeping it generic, there are others out there that make the same stuff

    Haven't seen the movie, but I'm pretty sure the the 'magazines' attach to what you called a 'manifold.' I'm just guessing from the shape and the fact that there are four of them and four holes.

    the whole film was US military propaganda... cliche after cliche. The story was promising, but I think the execution was quite poor.

    A buddy of mine recently bought the full Spectral outfit and one of the stunt plasma rifles at an auction - two of us spent half an hour getting him into it at Manchester FTLOSF so he could strut around. Very well made that's for sure.

    Loved the movie. The creator has commented that a lot of it was really stretching it, but it was less about the spectral mcguffin thing and more about the scientific method. There have been comparisons to Aliens, but as you may have noticed, this movie, even tho it's suspense horor, does not rely on the characters being bumbling trigger happy idiots. They were competent professionals that are genuinely in over their heads, where, doing their best and failing, rather running around with like chickens with their heads chopped off, sat down and figured out what the fuck was going on and what they can do with what they know.
    If you're interested in suspense/horror, but hate the trope of an airhead opening an obviously dangerous door, or get high blood from seeing the klutz that keeps tripping over for no reason, or the frustration from watching a guy walk backwards into danger, if you hate all that, this movie is for you!

    Adam, great film as usual. I would especially like to say bravo to your cohost for hold his finger off the trigger while holding the plasma rifle. May be fake but the rules still hold. Good job!

    They spent more time and money making RUBBER renditions of tactical helms you could have bought for half of what they made them for.

  • Jack-O-Lantern
    Jack-O-Lantern 10 months ago

    the helmet is actually not a bike helmet, its a Airsoft style helmet with custom attachments but i could be wrong as it doesn't seem as thick, the same goes for them military style trousers n shirt with the pads, to help for easier and quicker movement but if you need to go on your knee quickly or prone you don't hurt your knees or elbows
