    The last one fucked up in between the posting and polls screen, I dont know what happened and now its unkillable, like Jason Vorhees... :eek: I tried to delete it but it wont die...

    Anyway, vote for your favourite mascot. Vote for as many as you like.

    I picked:
    Vic - Because the artwork was always awesome, especially that one that was neon green of Vic in the slimy goo factory or whatever it was. Ill try and find a picture, it ruled.

    Set - I like destroyers of worlds, plus he has an egyptian vibe, and I like that.

    Manowarrior: Ken Kelly RULES, thats why.

    Eddie - Well, it's Eddie! Who doesn't love Eddie?

    Snaggletooth - the most recognisable mascot in rock. I really must get me a Motorhead shirt soon so I can be like all the cool kids. And a Ramones shirt.

    I had to vote for Eddie, Vic and Snaggletooth. I couldn't really vote for Set because, in all honesty, he's just Eddie from the Powerslave album risen from the tomb. And the Reaper isn't really a mascot, plus COB can't really claim him for themselves because Maiden used him too and so did Blue Oyster Cult.

    Yeah the reaper is the COB mascot, they even named him. Roy. Naturally. Plus he is on all their album covers, even most of the singles, so that qualifies him.

    Roy the Reaper isn't very inventive though, so I still won't vote for him.

    I think thats a bit unfair Brian, you are acting like Jon has based his whole career on Iron Maiden or something!

    Yeah, but that was deliberate, wasn't it? I'm sure I read that it was a "homage".

    "Homage", "pastiche" or "plagarism"?

    Eddie is the best. Vic is second. I also voted for other, as Grave Digger's "Reaper" is awesome. The artwork for their latest album is some of the best cover art I have seen in yonks:
