    These helmets are for sale on ebay and I just wondered if they were any good. I'm as informed as some of you guys.

    These helmets are acutally quite nice. Mods are definatly needed, but mostly with the paintjob, and a seam that would need to get filled, but other then that, it's a great replacement helmet over an FX

    I don't know if you can really call it a UK exclusive anymore. But yeah they are very nice for the price. IMHO, even unmodded it looks better than the FX. It usually goes for $90-120 or so on e bay. Some of those e bay vendors also have it available on their store website.

    aye - MR CE, MR collectors, MR UK exclusive.
    pretty good lid. apparently half of an actual lid was used as base, and then flipped - so as to get a symmetrical look. thats one of the biggest criticisms from TK enthusiast - far too symmertical. you will get some who like it and some who hate it. but for the price - its very good.

    its wearable straight out of the box.... but if goign for 501 clearance, will need some easy mods. I did those and a few others on my overhaul.

    heres the link on my home forums - http://ukgarrison.co.uk/forum/viewto...=19182&start=0

    and a pic of mine after modding





    also check out FISD - the stormtrooper sites, loads of info on there

    I rate it a 6/10 when it comes to Stormtrooper helmets. Better than FX, that's all I'll say.

    I used to have one for my TD, overall its a pretty nice helmet. A good replacement for the FX, but it needs some modding.

    I also have one, but if I reall right, I got mine for about $70 shipped on ebay. The prices varry, I bid on a few, and wouldn't go much over $60. Here's mine un-moded. The only think I intend to do, is to paint the inside black, cut the forth tooth out, replace those horrible lenses, replace the horrible mesh, and then slap some TD stickers on there.

    I have that lid as well, and in hindsight Id get something else. It looks ok and for the price its a great helmet. But in my case, the symmetry of the faceplate just bothers me more and more every time I look at it.

    Id definately save up for a TE2 or TM in stead.
