Originally I had just intended to have the Epoch helmet as the punchline for this joke. But then at one point I remembered an old picture of what Kraid would have looked like if he had not been scrapped from Metroid Prime. I didn't actually understand the Giant steel dome on his head until after I made this comic.
Its so obvious it wasn't obvious! :P
Now Kraid's head can travel through time! Yay!
Except of course the time travel portion of the machine had been deactivated, but it's still funny the idea of Kraid's head being seen in different areas throughout history. Could you imagine his head showing up in the renaissance, the signing of the declaration of independence, the Spanish Inquisition?
ah, Kraid in Prime 1, I remember that. Infact parts of his model are still visable in the game (seperate and in tanks as I recall... maybe failed attempts at cloning him or something).
Well I think it's safe to say you've uncovered the truth of the Kraid fight. Maybe this is why they removed it ^_^
@Samus: Because they were too busy trying to improve Ridley to worry about making Kraid better. Either that, or it's one of those "You don't do it because it's so obvious it couldn't possibly be the right answer" situations.
eh, you'd be surprised how long it can take people to realize a helmet can be useful, American football players didn't have an impact absorbing helmet for decades.
