I don't think it's lighting. It looks the same in all pictures; I think it's grey.



That portion of the original's face was dulled down, maybe with paint, fine wet-sanding or dulling spray so my guess is it's to replicate that look.

This looks to be the eFX scheme:

Sure... I can understand that. But the look was created by painting the facemask glossy black, then gunmetal and then painting some parts black again. It's clear to see in the pictures that the black didn't cover the gunmetal very well. On the idealized, they should not include such "errors". They should leave that to the handbrushed version.

I'd prefer the established paint scheme over something... well... wrong:

I'll take one! Looking much better than I would've expected! :thumbsup
Hopefully the final production helmet will be able to keep a paint-job of that same level.

Hoping these don't go up for order soon since I've got no money to spend at the moment. :cry

I still can't believe Lucas gave the ok to do this after all the yrs bullshit replicas. I'm estatic to say the least and would buy it in a heartbeat but come to think about it, everyones gonna own the same real deal helmet and the search for everyones gonna be practically over....Whats next for the Vader community?. Really nothing after this at least imo . Myself, I'm done after this. Now I can devote some fulltime to the vette. I'm gonna miss the prop wars that to me kept the forums alive.

You act like those will go away.

I disagree. I think for the casual collector this may be the "ultimate piece" but I think that huge drive for screen accuracy the Vader community has will keep us wanting and searching for better and more detailed pieces.
