Am I the only one who didn't hate the Green Goblin's suit in the first Spider-Man film

I see that this costume gets a lot of hate and many people dismiss it as just a power ranger thing, but honestly, I personally don't mind it. I think the sleek design is kinda cool and the mask scared me as a kid and could be intimating somewhat.It's way better than the AMS2 Goblin, so I really don't think this costume is as bad as people think

I always thought it was badass, especially the helmet, but I was like 5 when the movie came out, so...

I thought it was perfect for the time.

His voice was emotive enough.

If I remember correctly they attempted a test run with a "real" goblin and it looked awful.

As said just suit can’t emote, which makes it just too one dimensional.

Voice aside I always liked the version from the 94 cartoon.

It's fine. Its a comic book suit from the early 2000s. Its not the best depiction of the Green Goblin, but its not the worst either. To be honest though, the green goblin's design definitely doesn't lend itself to real life very easily. Just be happy that they didn't try to CG a cartoony green goblin face on him using early 2000s CG.

The alternate version they had looked cool, but the big orange eyes made it look stupid though.

I thought it was cool at the time. The action figure that came with the glider was dope. Would've liked more purple on the suit itself tho to break it up a bit.

It's better than both Harry's suit in SM3 (snowboard goblin) or whatever the fuck was going on in ASM 2 at least.

Yes, you are. It's terrible. That animatronic mask would've been amazing. ASM 2 Goblin was even worse.

I think the attitude back then was "its not the comics so its shit". I think the design is fine and fits the movie but could have been better. The leaked mask design is a million times better.

It looks like something out of Power Rangers. Very cheesy. Luckily Willam Dafoe is an amazing actor who played the part well enough to offset the goofiness.

Even at the time when I was like barely a teenager I saw this suit and went "eeehhhh....okay."
I didn't hate it but I didn't like it much either.
Ultimately, I don't think history remembers that mask too fondly. There were better options.
Everybody loved Dafoe, though.

The older I get the more I realize that military dickhead was right, Osborne was wasting money on something that would never go beyond the prototype stage.

It was always terrible. Design only, it's awful. From a practical standpoint it was even worse because you just knew Willem Dafoe was hamming it up behind that plastic garbage and you aren't allowed to see it.

I was always disappointed they didn't go with something closer to the unused Alex Ross design, which was much more faithful to the comic book look.

The mask is the problem

Spraypainted the glider suit green? Ok

But who tf 3d printed this high tech goblin mask? It shouldve been one of the naturalistic ones Dafoe had on his walls
