OK, I have been getting so many e-mails and PM's asking for at least a "hint" of what we are working on! So, here is just ONE of the items in development!

This is the ORIGINAL pattern that Lucasfilm generously let me use to cast our master pattern! Since this is a LEGEND, no scanning or 3D Modeling!

I am sure that most of you can figure out what it is! If not, you are going to have to wait for our upcoming newsletter. (Yes, I did say newsletter . . . now you can get off the floor! hahaha!)

Damn.....the original vacuum forming mold!!! :bow

Not a cast of an original prop.... just the original molds...AWESOME!!!

The replicas will have the same pedigree as a production made props! I'm in hurry to see that!!!

Thanks for the info!

This is THE most awesome news I've had for a while. I had heard hints and whispers... but this confirmation is just cementing it. I've had to thin out my collection and drop a few pre-orders... but this one will be mine.

Hope they trim the lens area like this one, as that's my favorite one, but that would just be an added bonus:

This helmet was formed on these very molds and I've been drooling over these two pictures ever since I first saw them... and now eFX is making the Scout. Couldn't be better.

I always dreamed about molds made from this production made helmet, but finally, EFX will do better ^^

Very cool!!! I'm amazed and happy that LFL has let EFX get a hold of this stuff, it really raises the bar to a level that can't be topped IMHO.

Also, the guy who owns the old Altmanns moulds has reverse engineered the biker back to close to it's original state and it looks almost identical, he'll be happy. The Altmanns production moulds were a lot different to the original pattern.

Cheers,

Kraig
