@ defstartrooper: What I meant to say is the vocoder looks kinda RotJ, but certainly nothing like ANH.

Me neither.

Besides that the MR appears to be rather small. I took this pic (SDS vs MR Clone) to compare.

tbh I did wonder why there was a "non photography" notice, so maybe it IS an SDS. When I first saw the 2 pics on one of the other forums I thought it did look a hell of alot like the SDS's face.

Given MR has stolen pics from my site (like the one on the top of this page which is a CRProps helmet) and many others, maybe they did just pop along to AA's in london and picked up a battlespec :lol

Anyone got more pics?

Cheers

Jez

We're talking about the UK Toy Fair pic, right?
It looks far too small to be an SDS (Stunt or Battle Spec) and shape-wise it's totally different IMO. Besides that the vocoder looks ..... :pale ....at least not SDS-like.

Ok guys, I just took some time to put together some pics from different SDS owners and try to find similarities with the MR helmet and the SDS stunt helmet.

The first thing that calls my attention is the ears and the sticker on top of it. In the MR bucket the ears' details are not painted (in black) and the sticker size, it is pretty much as the same size as the sds buckets. The SDS buckets tend to have the right sticker (top of the ear) smaller than the left side sticker.

The other thing is the vocoder. Judge yourself by the pictures. It looks excessively similar IMO.

Maybe some of you are agree with me... maybe not. However, what I am 100% sure is that the bucket from the toy fair is not the final product.

With the announcement that MR will be doing mini helmets, and that Boba and Stormtrooper are included, are you sure these are the full size helmets?

Well, not as good = not as expensive, which is a good thing for me. It's not the best, but it's likely to be the best I'll have.
