Very cool. After seeing the Paul Allen mask in person (and handling it) I went straight over to my plastics place and found "bronze" plastic with which to vacuform the eyes I have in both helmets over here. It seemed absolutely dead on. I think it was acrylic too. And I did it within two hours of seeing the original.

The neck and cheeks in the Paul Allen were definitely different than the eyes.

Ive handled it several times myself, I took a pic of my yellow/bronze replicas (at the time) which I thought were very light until I set it next to the real mask- ill dig it up but the difference stands out.

The neck and cheeks im sure are from the same plastic but the cheeks do not have a green hue when shining bright a light through. The overall weight was surprising too.

Sent you a PM John. :)
