    It's a Master Replicas CE with a few mods.
    (For those that don't know, these are about a hundred bucks.)

    Yep, I've got an MR along with my AP bucket. I just can't bring myself to tear apart the MR and do the mods yet.

    You did a great job trimming the ears down on it!

    sweet Jesus Nate... a few mods...

    I'd say there are close to 10-15 mods to make a CE look that good...

    I'm almost embarrassed... I'm a TK guy and you fooled me...

    Thank you.
    The mods that I did are;
    1. Fill/sand the seams
    2. File out the teeth
    3. Replace ears, lenses, mic tips, and brow trim
    4. Cut brow higher
    5. Repaint.

    Maybe you should wash it up before you start painting it

    Seriously, that is one sweet helmet.
    Now... Send it to me.. I want, i want

    Seriously, that's a CE? That helmet never looked that great until you fixed one, haha.

    Now it looks powdery under the eyes. I dont like it! change it back.

    Or remove the powder look.

    Total cost? Still at least $125 and several hours of work cheaper than building an AP kit. Nice work, Nate!

    I've got to agree with Turo. The sand under the eyes seems like eye shadow or something.

    Not really.
    The helmet , blasters, packs, & armor change so much between scenes that I couldn't pin-point just one.

    Of course
    That's why I'm trying to finish this Sandy in time.

    Too bad I'm not gonna wear the Boba with your HIC there.
