    As far as the RF goes, I doubt we will be using the original electronics set up as it's just not practical for a licensed product.
    So I would definitely be open to working with someone who has managed to design an easy and reliable set up that could potentially utilized in a mass production environment.
    I really do not want to start any kind of dispute but I`m just wondering why it shouldn`t be at least sincerely tried to use the original RF set up?
    As you have already stated in your fist post: "What it also means is that EFX can confidently say this replica will be the most accurate Boba Fett ESB helmet replica ever offered.", the goal seems to be to obtain a maximum level of accuracy ... by changing the RF?
    Or is the intention simply to make this helmet look accurate just from the outside?

    Correct. Generally we do not attempt to replicate the interiors of the replicas.

    Gino, as far as paint, I know your doing the masters what are you thinking about for you pallet? After seeing the photos and videos...the helmet looks darker then MANY people think based on the AOSW photos and such...

    Not sure how to answer this but I'm thinking we'll match/custom mix the colors we use to the actual helmet.

    Does that mean you have access to the helmet still for such things? Will you be able to share the colors you end up using?

    OK, I see. Thanks for clarifying this point.
    Too bad the plan isn`t to replicate the interior too!

    It's pretty standard for that kind of information to be proprietary for EFX for obvious reasons.

    Good point Fett 4 Real, so in that spirit, here's a question for Gino.

    For the stormtrooper armor, does EFX plan to offer some type of display mannequin or frame/support option for display of the assembled armor?

    By the way, pretty cool that you guys are replicating the soft parts as well.

    I had not seen the full neckseal thing before. Maybe I missed it in photos along the way? ...Man, I love that decades later, there are still fresh discoveries for me about the OT Star Wars films.



    Just curious

    They said they are planning on it coming with some sort of mannequin. They haven't decided what type yet but something.

    Amazing. I never thought I would see the day that a cast off THE screen used ESB helmet would be available to the public.

    Ready to open my wallet ...

    I'm super excited about this. I really really just hope we even get a chance at being able to buy one. eFX stuff tends to sell out fast. I'm terrified of ebay scalpers swooping in and driving the price skyward. I really hope we all get the opportunity to buy one. :/

    Hopefully eFX recognises that there's quite a demand for this and making a few hundred extra helmets won't mean they'll gather dust on a shelf...

    Gino, can you assuage any of our fears by at least lying to us and saying there will be enough Fett helmets to go around? TDH folks seem to have a lot of spare time and cash to spend on this great hobby and getting this helmet would be centerpiece for everyones collection : ) thanks again for all your hard work and for answering our questions!

    Hey no prob. I'm happy to chime in and answer questions as best I can.
    We certainly would like everyone who wants one of these helmets to have the opportunity to get one.
    The problem is that a lot of times when we go to pre-order, the items sell out rather quickly.
    My recommendation would be to stay on top of the pre-order date and make sure you get your order placed as timely as possible.

    Do have a best guess for a preorder timeframe? I would think with all the work that is going to need to be done, logistically and manufacturing wise, that 12-18 months would be a good guess. And don't forget Gino, if you need help with the RF, let me know. I'm sure I can come up with something.

    Not even a best guess at this point.
    Will do on the RF.

    Cool, I look forward to trying to help out with the project. Do you have an idea of how you would like the rf kit to look and work? If so send me a pm and I can see what you are looking for and get to work in building it.
