    While I'd definitely love to own one just because, I really don't expect to see this get released in my life since efX is handling it.

    I'm not holding my breath until I see the final product. MR had a decent looking showoff helmet and we all know how that played out.

    I don't want to judge this helmet before it comes out, and I KNOW it won't have the faults that the MR had considering TDH members oversaw it, but such a specific piece AND paint job is hard to capture in mass production.

    It's going to be a great looking piece I'm sure, but I wouldn't troop in one after owning most of the EFX helmets and feeling how hot they get with the padding and such. I think this piece for a majority will belong on a display of some sort or tucked away in a box like the MRs are. Lol.

    I'm intrigued for sure. I really want to hear the history behind this endeavor. Casting a screenused helmet is something I figured would never happen.

    How did this happen? I figured GL would never let the actual lid get cast. These are going to sell really fast, if they actually make them.

    Sounds like Disney is opening the coveted LFL archives to some very lucky vendors for prop replicas. eFX is also doing a full screen accurate ANH Stormie suit, according to my FB feed.
    I agree with Wolfsburg, I'd love to hear the backstory on this new helmet.

    Looks good,but think ill stick to FP new lid,being down to the fact that its pretty likely this will be massed produced no doubt somewhere in the Far East,would rather have it from a trusted vendor who knows what he's doing...

    So most of the time I fire from the hip as far as posting...with this thread though I wanted to think about what I wanted to say first. And Danzo hit the nail on the head....Somewhat what I was thinking. Now with that said, and seeing the thing you still have to wonder what process they will use, if it will be painted, who will be painting it, what they will be using to paint it, how much will it cost, when will it be out available to the public (if it even happens) and if its outsourced overseas whos economy are we helping here? I really would LOVE to have this helmet in my collection which is about to get back to where it was before I went to Korea. This thing looks really cool, but in the end believe half of what you see none of what you hear. When its on sale then we can talk more.

    Well the post was a "part 1". Who knows how many more parts will be added. Maybe you'll find out. lol

    Is it just me, but can't help thinking this is a bit of a shame?

    It looks nice for sure. But as previously stated who knows what the end production pieces will look like. Plus it will be forever and a day before we actually see it in anyone's hands. I am still waiting for them to release their biker scout helmet that they showed off last year.

    Bit of a shame? Why?
    I am surprised that people aren't hugely excited about the idea that the ESB hero helmet was cast!
  20. Jul 18, 2013, 4:51 PM - Re: ESB HERO copy???? #20

    All the mystery, gone. All the years of fettling to achieve accuracy, null and void...LOL!

    Hey, but at least we learned there definitely is a 'wavy brow' on the ESB helmet, and that it's not an optical illusion due to the paint up.

    I'm with Danzo and F4R. I'll stick with FP and the talented artists here.

    I'm still going to get one of these whether it sits on a shelf or not. The lineage has won me over. Still love my ASOK FP Budget and considering the FPH2.

    Hopefully it won't come to that, but if the factory paintjob proves to be that bad, I'd probably just have the whole thing stripped and repainted by one of the talented artists in the Fett world. I just hope the helmet itself isn't exorbitantly expensive! This helmet's lineage is pretty much the holy grail for Fett helmet fans (unless you prefer the ROTJ helmet! ) so pricing makes me a bit nervous.

    I'm curious though, if thats the "Legend" edition, why is there no visible signs of the crack in the left corner mandible? Legend means its not modified correct?
