Thanks Chris
We intend this to be a warts and all helmet, our first prototype pulls had details which i didn't expect, like the original you could see marks from the original clay and like the originals each one will have its own little imperfections making them as individual as the original were. for example i've noticed on mine a slight vein under left ear which none of the others have as far as i'm told

This vein also appears to a lesser extent in the prototype but this vein is individual to this helmet!

I can't believe I'm posting about vein's in my helmet, I didn't realize it was that sort of website!!!

It's great to see that this helmet has webbing on it too. Never expected to see disclosure of the facts on this level. Thanks for sharing. Recent loft find ANH armour discussion - Page 5 94707

We should have some prototype shots on here very soon I'm hoping before the end of the month I want some more professional shots with the ANH helmet and the RS helmet next to each other.
Then the next stage is to start taking orders for the first run.

I know I'm not the only one wanting to know this and I know it is crass but what do you think one of these babies will cost us?

And I Would certainly consider getting one from the first run! I think that would be the first kit I'd build myself, so that would be exciting Smile

The First Run will come fully made up with hand painted decals as per original, along with numbered RS Prop Masters custom made Stand.

Our mission is to produce the most accurate helmet for the Star Wars fan base. And as far price goes we want to keep it within a competitive price range, So that you guys will come back for more.
The same can also be said about the suit!

I don't want to discourage you guys, but you better take that mission seriously then.
Fully finished means they have to be bloody good to convince this lot here to drop serious cash. I know a lot here prefer kits, I for one do, so you'll have to impress me now Smile

I know Rob's Fett work (in fact I'm just waiting for some of his stuff to arrive Smile), and I didn't say I doubt you'll be doing a good job!
I'm just saying right here you're with the most anal detail freaks when it comes to TKs, but I'm sure Rob knows that sort of people from the Boba scene already Wink

Well, if you don't mind me saying so - but decals actually are the first turn-off for me. Only real hand painted details are acceptable for ANH, for me anyways.

But sure, let's wait what you guys come up with. Smile

Dont worry guys the L.S.D review committee will let you know our findings Simon just dosnt know about its existance yet .Infact i just thought it up. Recent loft find ANH armour discussion - Page 5 407583

On a serious note when i hear the words fully finished,hand painted,stand etc I am adding $$$ to every word.

fantastic news on this project that seems to be picking up pace with every update.

"I feel a great disturbance in the force!"

Like I've said we want to keep the price competitive so that fans can buy from us, we're hoping that buy keeping it competitive this will discourage recasting.
