I am a complete sucker for masks and helmets, especially helmets that cover the entire face. I love the idea of knowing how a character is feeling just from their body language and intonation alone. And in this case, I think it fits with the uniformity of the Hater army. And though it looks goofy, imagine being hunted by a hundred of these guys in the dark, with all those holographic unblinking eyes staring at you.
The Watchdogs are mostly based on deep sea bubble helmets while Commander Peepers’ helmet is a mishmash of a conquistador, spartan, and Cobra Commander’s mirror mask helmet. (I also threw in a Spaceball styled Watchdog as a gag, though I guess that could be the standard uniform when the Watchdogs aren’t off planet.)
Rest assured, I actually have a face designed under that faceplate, though I’m pretty sure people will have mixed opinions on what I’ve got in mind.
