Original Robin masks are extremely difficult to find because they were produced for a short period of time, they don't stay on Robin's head well, and they're small and easily lost. The front of the mask is shiny black vinyl.

Initially, the black elastic strap was glued to the back of the mask. The glue didn't hold well, so Mego started sewing the strap to the sides of the mask.

The back of the mask is a white interwoven mesh material.
