Definitely a symbolic mask for a wannabe bad guy. And besides who is going to buy the action figures of kylo ren if he's maskless. Masks/Helmets sell!

I enjoy the rational view and symbolic views. I reckon since laser's hurt the eyes that shielding is a given for future combat.... and a plasma bolt to the face might fare better behind a mask.
:lol:
It could then be another measure of wealth in ANW, ESB, and RotJ - how much armour an individual can afford. Haven't seen this new one yet but since it is post RotJ, I'm imagining a similar dog eat dog world that the Empire ran in its day, perhaps slightly worse in some parts, so pretty much the same situation in that regard.

actually I care more for what the ideals a villain employs what actions rather than what they wear

lightsabre would cut through if he did wear a helmet. armour is really restrictive, and better to avoid if the purpose is unserved

Actually, we dont know that a lightsaber would but through, but even aside, it would still add protection to the face. Also, by that rational, it wouldnt stop a blaster/plasma bolt either... I would also argue how restrictive it really is, and again, then why wear it at all?

I thought it was rather ugly anyways >_< I hope they give it a better appearance later

I would also add. Force Academy actually teaches the importance of Armour and Masks :) Just a side thought...Its a Dark Aspect thing though....

actually we know lightsabres cut through almost any material.

wear a helmet and experience how restrictive wearing a helmet is, then you will know

and again, then why wear it at all?



emulation of Darth Vader was the motivation, and adoption of persona was discussed in this thread as reasons
