  1. Actually the last ROTJ helmet was sold a few weeks back and fetched $225,000/£176,000. Which was nice, As I have one. 😂
  2. http://www.starwarshelmets.com Is a great place to see the differences of the original helmets. No one really knows how the ROTJ came about. The ROTJ armour is the same as the ESB mk2. But ESB mk2 was made in pinseal/haircell abs and ROTJ was made in smooth. The helmets however look different to each other. It is thought that they made a few suits in ESB for background shots (one spotted in the freezing chamber scene) and for promotional work. Hence ESB mk2. I believe these were then remoulded and the ROTJ were made. I could be wrong but that makes more sense timeline wise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Haha. Just spotted this post. This is mine. I was lucky enough to get hold of this some years ago from a friend that worked at the London film museum. I have had it authenticated at the propstore and Charlie Bailey also confirmed it was one he made for the extra shots in “A New Hope” special edition.
  4. If you want authenticity then you should use a liquid solvent cement. It’s a water like substance. You clamp the two parts together then apply the liquid in an needle applicator bottle to the join. It will seep in a capillary action and weld the two parts together. you just have to be careful not to drip it across the plastic or you’ll be sanding and polishing.
  5. I hate acrylic capped. It’s not accurate and it’s really horrible to cut. You will go through blades like nobodies business. It’s shiny and very white. It can be brittle as it has a layer of acrylic on the plastic surface. You will get more flex and a more accurate look using standard 1.5mm white smooth ABS.
  6. I don’t think you’ll get a recast from Matt. He was one of the first guys to offer cast from original stormtrooper helmets and armour to the community. Unfortunately he couldn’t say no to new customers and as with a lot of vendors they get snowed under and then the next thing you know it’s been years and you haven’t delivered. Not making excuses for the way Matt treated his customers but we all forget he was one of the pioneers of replica stormtrooper armour and helmets. That shouldn’t be forgotten. Although bad business practices didn’t do him any favours at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi FISD staff, members and friends. I’d like to thank all the FISD staff for working tirelessly over the last week on this nightmare. I know it’s not a decision you and the other staff members have taken lightly. Believe me the last thing I wanted was to bring down a trusted vendor who I respected and trusted. But in his own admission of guilt has done this to himself. I’d also like to thank all members I have known on this forum for many happy years and members I hope to get to know, a heartfelt thanks for the overwhelming support I’ve had through this whole debacle. It really has been a humbling experience in more ways than one. THANK YOU ALL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks guys. It’s not hard to see the BS when you’ve been in this hobby as long as we have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Good to see you. Shame it’s not under better circumstances.
  10. I’m glad I’m not part of it by what I’m hearing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Isn’t it just. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks mate. I appreciate that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. He’s not admitting to recasting it he is admitting he got hold of some moulds of my helmet and used them. To me it’s no different really. He still knew they were moulds of the JoeR helmet and used them. And his justification is revenge to make me feel what he felt when joe posted the photos that he bought in a private deal that was nothing to do with me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
