He looks okay, at least in comparison to Fireman.
It's abit better than the true Inazuman, which had a proboscis on his head.
The Battle Hawk manga is great. They only transform in the very beginning though, which leads me to believe that Ishikawa didn't care for or maybe didn't even design their transformed state.
Those would actually be fine if not for the creepy mouth places and visors.
No they're not. Toys weren't the main draw to tokusatsu back then, you're thinking with too much of a bias towards modern mentality. Ratings were the big grabber back then, that way you could learn about your HADACHI soap products during commercials for Fireman.
Thunder Mask is this Tezuka rip-off of Ultraman?
He is the beast that we dare not speak of.
I actually have the stuff that I badly photoshopped in that one thread where everyone moaned about how terrible the designs were
Personally I think the helmets are fine. The black window thing is enough of a decoration to keep them from looking too boring. The suits on the other hand... There's just too much empty space, and personally the railroad pattern across the chest looks terrible.
Toei Barom One was ugly, but the original one is literally Golgo 13 with Wolverine's haircut.
All the Den-O suits except Sword form and maybe Axe Form
I love the show but holy fuck they dropped the ball hard with the suit designs
Climax Form is probably the ugliest Rider suit I can think of
