    No they are not Don Post, they are the SA helmet from Tongodix. Eventually we plan to upgrade to MLCs.

    Thanks guys, they feel really nice on as well, not too hot, beautiful movement when walking. Honestly perfect. I could not be happier with the way they turned out. Even the spot where we had to add a button for the head holes came out nice and perfect.


    Next on our list of Emp guards, Shadow Guards using Gypsyboy buckets. I just really want a SaberPike.....lol. I am half tempted though to grab our MLCs and use our SA buckets for Shadow Guards, GB's bucket may be gorgeous but from what I have seen resin Rg lids weigh a ton.

    Yes, yes, very nice.

    Don't forget, I'm getting closer to casting my IGV2, if you still are interested.

    Great pics! Those outfits look awesome. Just wanted to interject that the resin I use is relatively light (but strong). To give you some idea - I am told that my resin Vader helmet is very noticeably and refreshingly lighter than a f'glass one. Because of the size of these lids they won't be light as a feather, but they won't be near as bad as if they were f'glass. As for strength - I've mentioned this before in other posts on various boards but it is really a good example - I had a resin Vader face get blown off my back porch, and it landed on top of a large rock. I jumped down, expecting to have to pick it up in pieces, only to find it was undamaged. If it had been f'glass I would have been bringing it back in a pile of shattered shards. I know this to be true because I've had that happen.
