    Zuckuss Mask...I'm Stumped

    I've been seriously considering a Zuckuss costume (since I'm already a bigger guy, I won't need any padding to look right ), but I'm completely stumped on the helmet. I've tried Ebay for the past half a year, but kept coming up empty. Also talked to one of the guys at Polymer Armory, since they had one on their website. They said they were considering making copies for sale, but I haven't heard anything back from them either. I know there weren't any made commercially available, so that's a dead end as well.

    I haven't started anything else on this costume, because if I can't get a hold of the mask, there's no point. And there's no way I'd be able to sculpt that thing with my lack of talent.

    Does anyone have any leads on this? I've visited the Phoenix Squadron forums, but I think I have to be 501st to post on there.

    You do not need to be a member of the 501st to post at the Phoenix Squadron now.

    I came very close to sculpting a Zuckuss head recently. Probably will eventually.

    He's on the RPF if you want to get in touch with him. I just talked to him recently. Same username, Halo_1.

    Minus the robes, straps and weapon, He's got pretty much everything else.

    Cost for a raw kit is $950 + shipping.
    He can send you pics too.
