Ok, thanks.

In fact I ordered a TIE helmet kit when RSprop announced it

I also ordered a storm helemt kit at the same time.

They delivered me both helmet, before Christmas as promised (but I wasn't in hurry).

Storm helmet kit was perfect, as usual (not my first order from RS team)., but the TIE helmet kit was incomplete and "damaged".

I only received plastic parts (ears, two halves of the main helmet and the faceplate).

The faceplate is pinched on one side (left tube) due to a very thin area on the plastic (thus when I manipulate it, it bend a lot).

I contacted the team and they explained me that they sent what they had when I ordered the kit and promised me replacement part and missing parts. I then learned that they had some trouble finding the correct material for the lenses, which explain the delay this project took.

I recently saw on facebook that a customer received his kit. He had the decals, the greeblies, the lenses, the plastic parts to join the mohawk area, the star (petal) foam and everythings needed to complete the kit as a finished helmet.

I've sent many emails (with questions about upcoming products, since I really like what the team do). Sometimes I had news and answer and sometimes not. Since my last email (sent one week ago), no news :pale

Pretty normal with RS Props. Sometimes communication is great and Rob is sending answer within minutes or even seconds and sometimes you can send 5 emails without getting a reply. I think they simply have to much work for that amount of people involved. I ordered a complete Tie combi and should receive Nr. 3 of 100 and my name wasnt on any of the helmets they posted on facebook and i doubt i will get Nr. 3 as promised.

FYI there's a brief scene in ROTJ which features stormtroopers and TIE fighter pilots which I don't think appears in ANH but was likely filmed at that time. It's about 2 seconds of footage squeezed in between the head-first dive of the Executor into the Death Star and Luke dragging Vader to the imperial shuttle. It provides an on-screen view of the TIE fighter costume some may not have noticed before. I was surprised to discover it recently upon my 1,138th viewing (approximately) of ROTJ.

Have seen my helmet on there FB page.
But i also ordered a finished helmet and armour.
Didn't get any news so far if it's finished , shipped or not.
So i think i just have to wait and see.
Just hope all will be complete and nothing damaged.
