Yes I have to say I was a little disappointed as I couldnt attend the auction myself as had a meeting with Hugh Grant (he's playing me in a new movie similar to The Social Network, but instead about the epic rise and fall of Star Wars Helmets.com)

Anyway I'd put a posted bid of $321,421 in the day before so was really annoyed to be beaten by a single dollar!

Cheers

Jez

It went for £200K! I am in shock! Wonder how much SiMans would go for?


I think what Siman is doing is the right way to go. He will sell suits at the price he's asking, which is affordable, and still make close to that auction AND get to keep the suit. Think about it, a full RS suit sells for about $1500 and they sell about 200 (at least), that's $300,000. Sure it's not full profit, but the more suits they sell, the more they make and the suit never leaves their possession.

And most of all they get the satisfaction of knowing they've made so many happy by providing actual ANH cast armor finally. I still cant believe it actually. My holly grail.

Can you share those pics yet Jez. I'm dying to see them.

I have found this photo showing what could be the same two troopers except the helmets are on the wrong suits.
