Marto indeed made a Doom helmet but only in keychain format, 1.6 inches. I know it's not a helmet really, but as far as I know there aren't any official lifesize Doom helmets around. The keychains are kinda cute:

Rexor and Thorgrim's lifesize ones by Marto are totally mammooth-shit, btw. puker



EDIT: there's a guy who appears to own a replica of Doom's helmet -when it's not an original expensive prop from the film, I just don't know... Maybe you could ask him. Here:

Hello,

and thanks for your answers.

I sent a message to Myspace so we will see what the answer is.

I am wondering why there's no replicas from Thulsa Doom out there. Shit

What if Star Wars merchandising had nothing about ''Darth Vader''??

Crazy. foufou

Regards.

I wanted to buy two keychain helmets from that company - they wanted €20 just for the packing and postage! The helmets are great... I must win the lottery...

And hello Andy!

Well, you are right about the helmet, but if you take a look at Marto's helmets you will find they are nothing but cheap versions of the originals. I guess a version with that level of cheesyness of the Doom helmet wouldn't simply work. Rexor's and Throgrim's are way more simple and the originals are harder to remember as they were seen very briefly on screen, but Doom's one was more elaborated and they couldn't afford to create something like that. Well, I'm just guessing.

Its very hard to find a replica in metal, usually it'll be in resin and cost a small fortune for it.

The Marto Atlantean is pretty good, i think.

But the one you are showing doesn't look bad, for me. Least it's the original design. How cheap is it?

I don't know??

But they sell the sword on Ebay.

The sword is not bad but only the hilt is plastic.

I put mine on the wall, it's o.k., but you feel it well in your hand and

then it fells... something wrong. Rolling Eyes

So I'll try maybe to get a Marto also.

The problem is there is no shop around me to see it in real before I buy it.

But when I see the pictures from the Marto ''ATLANTEAN'' or the ''Father'',

I think the look is better. Yeahhhh!

Regards

I live in Madrid, and they have Marto's Conan swords all around in a lot of places. It's silly, but you know, it's the capital and there are a lot of turistic shops where they sell swords -because of that "steel from Toledo" thing, you know-.

I could grab an Atlantean a couple of months ago, in a shop. I tell you, it's fucking big and heavy -though It's true am used to fencing sabers Rolling Eyes - and it feels real for the most part. I think is a very good replica, even better than the Father sword -which isn't bad at all, but I don't like Marto's version that much...

The grip in Marto's is metal covered with true rope.


Cromulus, the one you own is a Marto, right?

Hello Flaming Turd,

Ahh, o.k., you live in Madrid.

The ''Father'' is not so good??

Maybe the Special Edition is better but yeahh, it costs around 800 Euros??

That's a lot of money for a sword that is later on only hanging most of the time on the wall.

But a friend of mine says also you have to be careful when buying a Marto onebecause there are a lot of fake Marto-swords out there with fake ''Certificate of Authenticity''??

I didn't know that !!!

But what option have we also ?? The Albion ??

The Albion looks so much better??

I didn't see big differences in the pictures on the net. Shit

I had gotten an Albion off of Ebay some years back, but sold it because I needed the money. Mad The version I have now is some reproduction from China and more resembles the 'Destroyer' sword of Albion rather than the Marto's. Its construction is pretty good and the metal seems OK.

I have a Marto's Father sword. I do see alotve companies make CONAN related replicas, whether they're all licensed or not I have no clue.

The Albion swords were simply perfect. In any ways, as they were designed and built by the same guy who did the original ones for the movie 30 years ago.

Insanely expensive, also. I can't afford that not even dreaming... Laughing

Though, see, the main difference is particularly in the Father Sword. Albion's is just a real sword (the skull carving, the grip with true leather, etc). Maybe you don't notice it at first look but the one from Marto looks too "replica" for me, not as a real sword. Albion is a real weapon in all meanings, the feeling is just unvelivable. But you know, Marto's father sword isn't bad at all.

The atlantean by Marto is pretty good, imo.

Look, for a sword to be hang in the wall any Marto (atlantean or father's) is an excellent choice. If you wanna use them -hopefully not against any living creature Wink - then you should buy an Albion, they are built for real use -and that steel resist anything-. That is, if you can -or want- pay the huge account of money they cost, and also if you can find any avaiable -they stoped producing them some months ago.

I myself, if I had money to spend, would buy an atlantean Marto.

Hope this helps, friend.

When I get the price, I will let you know.

Yea, I forgot to mention the details sorry. There hasn't been any talk of actually putting the rest into production, but the helms have been out for a few years. I haven't seen any better picture though. I don't know what I would do with the rest of the outfit either. Maybe the shield... but I'm White, Bald, and not so "robust"... no chance of a Halloween outfit there...
