I saw it at Wondercon. And it is GOOD. Seriously. I thought it was the fiberglass one. Only about 300 bucks and you can see it on their site. I handled it too.

Great great deal.

It does look good and will be excellent for those who actually use their costumes.

No doubt if you troop as the Dark Lord this would be good choice. For display...ehhh. The dome is 2 parts. The tubes are separate parts. They intersect at the cheek awkwardly and are flat and wide forward of the cheek. The nose droop at the tip looks too square; I believe it should flare a bit more. Details, details which make it distinguishable from the eFx Limited/Legend though it was derived from the same. After we see some actual production copies and confirm it's 100% scale with respect to the Limited/Legend then I would consider getting one.

Interesting. How do you mean that the dome is two parts? Constructed of two parts? I held the dome and it just seemed like a single piece Vader dome. The teeth are also squared off nicely and things are sharp/ crisp. It is an idealized ANH is all.

But just for my fyi, how is the dome two parts and how are the tubes separate? Granted, I did not examine uber-closely but held the two pieces separately and then put them together to observe how the magnet mechanism worked - and it works great.

As light as the Don Post C/A to hold.

I've seen the pics. Great to hear from someone that has seen it in person! I'm going to get one as a trooping/costume helmet for sure.

Oh such a good thread. Gino being typical Gino. ...thanks to him, I'll never buy a product directly from EFX.

Hmm. What is the issue regarding those tubes being separately attached or the dome being constructed in two halves? Isn't that just assembly?

Clearly you don't understand how injection molding works.

Perhaps, but what has that to do with the man's aesthetic sensibilities?
