Gredok the Splithead put it to a vote, and over 250 Ionath fans responded to make this helmet the new look for the 2686 season. After 25 years and a major accomplishment (we won’t say what, due to spoilers for those who haven’t read the series yet), Gredok felt it was time for a change.
This design (called “Modified #2” in the voting) was the runaway winner. It features the Krakens logo moved down to the facemask, so that the “tentacles” are more prominent in the overall helmet design. It also gets some hardcore “Krakens Orange” in those tentacles to replace the orange-yellow that has been there for 25 years.
