Ok the other day a friend of mine visited with his MR LE trooper lid and we took a few pics of it compared to the trooper lids that i own. While we didnt really take much time or effort to set them for like for like comparison i thought i would share the pics anyway.

First up is my TE2

Pretty clean looking collection you got there. Only thing I find a little odd looking about the MR is the teeth area... the grey teeth just don't look "tall" enough, if you know what I mean... or is that caused by how its painted?

I see you got the TE2 without having fixed the damage at the back/cap at the brow. Would you mind if I used a pic of yours for the helmet list, as I miss a TE2? Need a direct frontal shot.

Nice photo comparisons Firebladejedi.

NHM the mouth on the MR is about right, remember the frown on the Hero helmets was a lot thinner than the Stunts hence it stands out a bit more in the comparisons

Cheers

NHM i will have to take some pics of my TE2 for you as i dont have any with the tube stripes on apart from this one which is a close up and all though you can see the mold damage really well it suffers from perspective distortion.

And Jez is right about the MR, they actually look a lot better in the flesh but there is still something about the ears, teeth and frown i dont really like.

Jez; true... just think it's down to personal preference then and the fact that the hero look never really appealed to me with the way they painted the teeth. Still a nice helmet! :thumbsup

firebladejedi; that's a perfect shot for what I need... well, can always change it later, if you'd prefer a more perspective proportioned one. Let me know.

If your happy NHM use that 1, im sure everyone know the helmets are properly proportioned :toothy
