    Re: Finally- MLC Helmet is done!

    Hi all.

    Just a quick update to let anyone in the UK know that Mardon, Rex and I have have had a chat and agreed it would be easier and cheaper for UK buyers to deal through one contact, like Rex in the USA, but based in the UK. This eliminates 2 sets of international shipping (Mardon to Rex, Rex to UK)

    So, just to let you know, any UK guys want any of the MLC range, let me know and we'll take it from there. Feel free to PM me or mail me at sianbeck@yahoo.co.uk. Prices are the same, but converted to UK£ and rounded to the nearest £5 or so for ease of calculation on our part.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Finally, thanks to Rex and Mardon for letting me help out on this!

    I have duplicated this post in the JP thread too, so apologies for anyone who reads this twice!

    Cheers.

    OK guys, check this out. I'm not sure if this is the inflatable kind or the foam padded ones but it might be worth a look see. There are several of them on ebay with a starting bid of 14.95



    This is the kind of padding I was trying to grab here at the school.

    Edit...I forgot to add that this is a ridell football helmet if it matters.

    That appears to be the foam one. The air helmets we used had a "halo" in the top that inflated. That was the only part that inflated. We used Bike brand helmets, so this one may be different.

    Hi Doug,

    I just wanted to convey my thanks & appreciation for you helping both Rex & I in these paddings. I'm sure those would work great on our buckets!
    As much as I wanna mold the "ala Ridell" interior components for our MLC bucket, I'm still waiting on electronic gizmos that would make an RF remotely go up & down - as there might be some changes on the right interior earcap.

    With the RIdell helmets that circle of 4 pads in the very top inflate to adjust up and down direction. The ones in the back and sides inflate to make the helmet fit tight. Even the inflatable ones are about 3/4 foam padding and adjust probably 3-4 hat sizes (About half an inch at most) We coulld probably cut the air valves off of the back of the padding and it would still work to hold fairly well depending on the insides of the helmet. It's something everyone would have to play with a little to get the proper fit.

    The one problem I do see with these pads is they won't leave much room for the electornic gizmoes....namely cooling fans. That could present a bit of a problem.

    My old high school also still has some of the "old school" Riddell helmets with the square padding. I tried to smuggle my football helmet out(ol' bessy) the day after the last football game but that wiley old coach...

    I second that notion. Any chance on getting some info on what MLC is offering, please.

    I am new in this forum, having stumbled upon it in the search for a good Vader helmet. I live in Denmark and have recently become interested in collecting Star Wars helmets... and MLC helmets just keep popping up everywhere... and I must say: I'm impressed.

    Sincerely
