RoboCop, Bats of Austin on Dallas Stars Prospect Mask

RoboCop, Bats of Austin on Dallas Stars Prospect Mask

Josh Robinson Texas Stars 2013-14 Mask leftWhen your nickname is RoboTendy, it only makes sense to have RoboCop painted on your mask, so that’s exactly what Dallas Stars prospect Josh Robinson did.

Painted by Jason Livery of HeadStrongGrafx, Robinson’s new Texas Stars mask blends a RoboCop silhouette with the teams logos and tributes to Austin, Texas, with the Austin skyline, capital building, and bats flying everywhere.

Why bats? No, there is no Batman to play off RoboCop.

Austin is simply known for bats, with several conservation centres and tourists flocking to the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue bridge, which is the home of anywhere from 750,000 to 1.5 million bats depending on the time of year. At sunset these bats emerge like a black could, covering the countryside and consuming between 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects. Sounds like quite a sight, and one Livery captures nicely on Robinson’s new mask.

Robinson’s creativity this season doesn’t stop with the lid, however. He will also be sporting a custom set of GNET-ik pads from Brian’s Custom Sports that was designed for him by  Mathew Abraham, a member of the Goalie Guild Creative Design Services team.

Be sure to check out both links for images of the pads, and more information on what the design team can do for you. And for more of Livery’s great masks, check out the HeadStrongGrafx website, as well as on Twitter, and FaceBook. In the meantime, enjoy these closeups of Robinson’s new lid:

    I’m glad to hear that the mask was not the correct one otherwise a crooked mask could cause a whole heap of problems for the goalie inside the mask.

    Very cool painting. I can’t say enough about all these amazing airbrush paintings that have come upon the scene this season. Actually they have been there for quite a number of years it’s just that these days the artwork on a goalie mask has become just that – a piece of art.
