Cyclops’ (James Marsden) paint-test visor from Bryan Singer’s 2000 comic-book adaptation X-Men.
Two powerful mutants, and former friends, have vastly different views on how mutants can interact with the rest of humanity. Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) leads the X-Men and believes that humans and mutants can live alongside each other; Magneto (Ian McKellen) believes that mutants are the next step in humanity’s evolution and destined to rule.
Paint-test items are used by makeup artists to visualise characters, and thereby achieve the right production effect. Cyclops’ visor is made of cast-in resin mixed with aluminium powder to give it a fine metallic finish. Its design is nearly identical to the visors used during production. It is spray-painted metallic dark silver on the left and matte dark silver/grey on the right, with a central dividing line to indicate the visor’s use for comparative purposes. The right earpiece features a handwritten sticker inside reading, “Flt Blk Auto Clear W Pearl”, referring to the paint on the left half.
The visor features minor chips, scratches and imperfections from use during production but remains in an otherwise excellent condition. A 20th Century Fox certificate of authenticity is included with the item.
Materials: Resin, Ferrous Metals.
