Guys

I have compared a Meatsock and TE together and I am 100% convinced it is a recast, have a look at the right hand trap (as you look at the helmet) and look at the dimple in the 'tear' areas. TE said the dimple was one of his 'tells' to catch out recasters. Notice how soft the teeth/frown area is on a Meatsock. It's a no-brainer!

Also if you read Keith's post you can see he contacted the real Meatsock, Brian G from New York and he denied that he had posted on the RPB. I think it is a windup...

Cool. Thanks for sharing.

And yeah... I think I read that on the RPB... that Meatsock wasn't Meatsock and all that... :lol

Mind if I use the Meatsock picture and add it to the list?

Also added a picture of the AP helmets... but am unsure whether the helmets in the picture is in fact not GF helmets... anyone with more insight could possibly tell them apart... :wink:

Well, the larger the better... shows more detail. Though, you could possibly post them as thumbnails here to ease the loading, etc. :thumbsup

Maybe I should remove the pictures of the ESB helmets, as they are simply the same as the ones offered in the ANH section, only painted differently or with differently colored stickers. I dunno...

Oh... I just get a tutorial for a three-part helmet, just like that enigma one on eBay lately. Are they the same?

Really? So an RT isn't just an RT?

No that one on ebay was not a VSF there should be a picture of the completed helmet at the bottom of that tutorial

I contacted RT in october as i was thinking about buying one of his lids he told me that in november he would be releasing his fourth generation helmet as it happens i didnt buy one anyway i plumped for an AP instead
I remember reading elsewhere before that there were 3 types of RT im not sure what the differences are though

are you saying the rubies is a bad helmet ? :lol
