    Wow!!! I was eagerly awaiting this day, count me in for a set.

    Beautiful Work!!!

    What about adding three attachment points to the Left Ear - Top, Mid, Bottom. That top portion of that ear cap many times wants to pop away from the flat of the helmet, might just be a better control of drawing it in closer, at least that's what I did with my BKBT Jango helmet and MS 1 Boba helmet.

    That would be an easy one
    Good idea.

    Wow, such great work! So when are you going to make gauntlets to go with my flamethrower?

    Just one more thing...

    Obviously on the top portion of the Right Ear Cap with the notch for stalk being in the center, the attachment point can't be moved, but could the one on the bottom portion be centered? That way there would be an even amount of tention being placed on at least a portion of that piece, otherwise as you tighten it, the front edge might want to lift away from the helmet.

    Ok, I'm done now!

    If I may suggest, could you possibly put the bottom threads at each bottom corner? That way the connection would be really solid and balanced.

    P.S. This stuff is AWESOME!

    I can change the location but I don't want to add more holes. That adds more time in the long run. It adds up.

    Plus with the angled sides of the ears, you can't go to deep or you will pop out of the front .

    I think $250 is a steal of a deal dude. Those with any fanmade kit, this is the way to push your helmet to the limit. I think if you want a truly accurate helmet, this is a no brainier. We all dropped $250ish for our gaunt missile so a 4 piece set of metal ears is the bargain of the century.

    You only need to worry if you were one of the humans involved in the "TAKING" the all spark cube.



    Drokkul is right, I do fight with the Decepticons.

    Although, Bumblebee and Barricade are my favs, I'm stickin' the the bad guys MUHAHAHAHA

    $250 is a steal. I know people who paid twice that for metal ears...

    Anyway, that being said, these can and if enough people are still wanting a set, will be offered. I NEED at least TEN people to commit and I do mean COMMIT....other wise this will come out of my pocket.

    Its alot of cash to plop down on a set of "ears" for a helmet, but I can tell you this, they will be the last set you will need.

    Need feed back.....
    What helmets will these be available for?

    I know there was some discussion about this before but $250 is a tad much for me to spend on my old DP'95 when I have a much better bucket that could make use of these.

    I have sold a set of these to ASOK.

    He has my permission to do whatever he wants with them including molding them up to make copys.

    Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead but I want everyone to know that ASOK will do no wrong by offering these up.


    Later,
