We didn't get them here in AU.<br>

Apparently the helmets are not due for release in AU till mid October.<br><br>

We only got the Black Series 6' figures and some other smaller figures.<br>

So I got me a Death Trooper. The K-2S0 looks pretty sweet too.

My eyes are untrained to Stormtrooper details, but they look pretty darn close to me, aside from minor details like the blue lines and the ear pieces. Then again, this is a Rogue One trooper.

Same, Live in AU too, had to go preorder from ToysRus... From what I've heard, they sold out the second the preorder was up, and came back up again on Force-Friday for a revision >.<

 

Well.. Snooze.

Pst, it's a Rogue One Stormtrooper.... :)

 

Another modification will have to be done to the trim for the brow. It's not thick, or black enough (underside) for it to be a proper Rogue One helm. I'm also pretty sure it needs to be a fraction lower to the eyes. That, and the brow isn't tapered.

Based on the way the indention's look, either those are going to require a good repaint, or filing out those vents and adding thin blue sheets of plastic underneath. I feel like it will give it a more edgier and screen-accurate look based on the high res photos shown from celebration. Then fill ion those speaker slits, smooth out the battery cap, and see if something can be down about that brow. I think this will definitely be a cool little project.

I know, i wasn't just studying the rogue one helmet for a couple of months, ay?, xD, Its good to note that this isnt as spot on, still, you get some of the modifications to fit in with the hasbro line.

My biggest worry with this helmet was that it was going to be undersized. However judging by the pics the size seems to be ok. Overall it looks to me to be a very nice addition to anyone's collection. Can't seem to find it in any of my local stores here in the UK though.

Don't worry, xD

 

Go back to page 3, someone posted a comparison against a anovos helmet, perfectly good size.

I ran out to my local Walmart and there they sat. I couldn't resist.  :smiley-sw013:

Well I bought one, took it out to the car, assembled it, and I gotta say, it was a fantastic looking piece. But then I learned the hard way that my big fat head doesn't fit in the thing. Such a disappointment for me. I returned mine, so hopefully some other lucky person gets it. It was defintely to scale, but the  think part where the battery compartment and speaker housing made it too tight for me. I hope Anovos or an independent artist comes out with a Rogue One trooper option.

Mine's currently on it's way from West Virginia after having pre-ordered it. Kinda annoying knowing there's one right down the street from me and I'm just sitting here waiting for one. :/

Same here.  I got one this morning, put it together, and there's no way it fit my head.  Looks great though.  Will keep it and use it for display.  While it appears to be to scale when compared to my RS Propmasters bucket on the outside it is very thick in places, mostly the back, and doesn't leave much room for your head.  I'm guessing it is not going to fit many adults so even if modded it probably won't work for most.

I read in another forum that removing the cover over the electronics in the back could help. Some would want to remove/replace the electronics anyway because of the microphone's low sensitivity.

However, once the helmet has snapped together, it could be very hard to get it apart again to do that.

 

If you know that you have a large head, you could remove the inner cover and the electronics before you assemble it.

For those of you who cant fit into the BS Stormtrooper helmet: I noticed that there are screws for the fat interior of the helmet. They did the same thing with the Kylo Ren helmet. You can unscrew it and take it out I'm pretty sure. Though I don't have one, but this is something I saw in pics.

That's not the problem, you have like a inch of kibble at the back part of the helmet, which reduces how comfortably your face can sit in there... I dont blame em... i personally think it's stronger method than vacuumforming. As everyone knows, or should know, vacuumforming is the cheapest, lightest option out there..

Finally received my helmet today. Took long enough, geez. For $80 this thing really is a HUGE bargain, however on the front of the dome are two small dings evenly spaced on both sides. Manufacturer error or damaged in shipping? Who knows. They're not very noticeable but once you spot them you can't take your eyes off em. What should I do regarding this? Also the back portion of the dome isn't flush with the rear piece. There's a small gap between both pieces that won't close up even though all three pieces are locked in tight. Am I still stoked about this though? You damn well better believe it. You'll never find anything this nice for $80, and it fits me like a glove which is real nice.
