    Everyone has seen the latest BLOG entry at the MASTER REPLICAS site ?

    They announced their 2006 product plan and among other Fett items ( ROTJ rifle in LIMITED and UNLIMITED COLLECTORS EDITION, .33 scaled Blaster ), they also have the ESB bucket listed. I am already curios how this will compare, to the Mystery, BMs, MSs...
    I'm sure it will cost like $900, haha, there is a MR Vader at the Sharper Image at the mall, and I believe it's like $1000.

    I think the form of the helmet will be terrific, but like a version the way it "should" have been in the movies, so symmetrical and all.

    wich is imo pretty cool.

    paint job will suck, so why not let MR know to put them for sale with only a grey primer on it :P
    The Fett helmet was not symetrical. Check out bobamaker's page to see the differences from left to right.

    mabie we should bobmbard them with emails containing the reference pictures that have the ESB helmet along with the picture that proves the leds are there. i think its the least we could do to try & help these guys. cause i want this helmet to rock. although we could tell them to switch to a ROTJ helmet. it doesnt have half as good a paintjob as the ESB but they might be able to not screw that up.

    Just so you know you are putting the esb helmet logo and the pre-pro helmet logo not the ROTJ helmet logo See the small differences?



    Personally I doubt the MR helmet will be worth it's almost assured high price tag. I can't imagine the paint job being worth it at all. I might be wrong here but couldn't they take the ESB helmet and do that funky laser scan thing that Gentle Giants does to get it right without damaging it? Regardless I will most likley drop the cash on it just to own one, but I doubt it will look as good as my MSH2.

    Now as far as them making the ROTJ rifle that I am totally down with, that is by far my favorite of Fetts weapons and I think they can most likley make a good version of that. And the fact they are making a LE version that will be a nicer limited version for display and a CE version that is unlimited and a little cheaper for trooping is awesome. I will probally pick up both and kiss my resin kit good-bye. And think if the ROTJ versions sell well they might make an ESB version in the future.

    I believe they chose the ROTJ EE-3 becuase it has a better look to it, the barrel of the gun is more sophisticated unlike the metal pipe in ESB.

    I'm sure I'll buy the bucket, I don't really trust myself in painting a helmet due to the fact I wish to replace my DP'95 bucket.

    I know LFL would probably never let molds be made of the original helmets, but couldn't they use the laser scanning method to duplicate the exact shape? I know there's companies out there that do this for a fairly reasonable price. Just a thought.

    That would most likely be how they would do it, that and use a prototyping machine. To my knowledge they used the actual models of the ROTS Clone helmets and prototyped out parts of it for symmetry and sculpted the base parts of the helmet. I used this technology a while back to do a Halo Pistol. Its a good way to get exact details. Stenciling works just as well for this. Stenciling was used to create the symmetry to my Crimson Guard helmet but if you use that you leave your sculpt open to some errors. But from looking at the Clone Helmets at MR they cheated with the models quite a bit.
