Shrink the chin vent, straighten the sides of the breath mask, reduce the downward slope along the upper cheekline from the nose to the outside points of cheek. Then it would look great. The greeblies look a lot like those in the Riddell .45 scale helmet.

Looks like a conversion between an Altmans and a Riddel scale helmet.
Not really my taste, but i'm sure a a lot others will like it.

These look like artistic renderings rather than actual product prototypes. That said, yeah, the shape of the cheeks need some serious work, lol.

Keeping in mind that this is a toy and not a "prop replica" I would have KILLED to have something like this when I was a kid. Heck, I still love my old Don Post mask, lol. I'll probably end up getting one for my Vader collection.

There is a physical proto type that I saw on the RPF thread. Its identical to the photos. Hasbro is keeping the Altman look alive! They wont be seeing my money on that helmet if its the final look.

I also saw the video posted on the RPF from HASBROCON. Retail price target said to be $99. They did show off some interesting features. Normal breathing sounds when worn with all 3 pieces connected and labored breathing sounds when wearing only the bottom reveal piece. And a vaccum suction and thump sound when the dome is attached. These sound features and reveal greeblies are all well and good, but the overall look is, well, bantha poodoo! :puke

The Hasbro reps did say this helmet was specifically bring used for product testing and intrgration purposes, not the final configuration. I hope it isn't!
