I found an auction for the GMH helmets on ebay by a user going by the name class.of.1984. Is this legitimate or is he a recaster? I've ben wanting one of those buckets for a while now but don't want to support scum and villainy.
Yeah slarti/1984 and whatever the other names were but always based in Canada. This particular item encapsulates one of the key issues of recasting in that there is often a noticeable reduction in quality of the thing that is copied. Presumably he no longer has access to the donor helmet to produce better copies than this. Looks like the price has gone up too.
But the fact remains he recast the helmet without permission and produces lower quality copies that mislead many people..........the simple fact that he changes his name often should be enough of a red flag.
