*bayer 501st

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Does anyone know of 501st pathfinder a seller on *bay selling screen used replica Lids.(warts and all) If so is he recasting or legit. they look quite good. but I don't want to support a re-caster!

 

Can anyone shed some light?

 

I am relatively new to this forum so I do apologize if he is well known on this site. I do not want to offend....

 

Mark. :mellow:

Looks like the helmet was assembled by someone with excellent modeling skills. I could almost swear that I have seen that helmet at MEPD before. Its made out of 60 gauge ABS which would lead me to believe its a TE recast pulled by VT.

I would go with a known armor maker, most everything on Ebay is recast. You will be much happier in the long run.

:D

That said TE, AP , TE2, VT etc, are all technically re-casters like it or not. How far can you take re-casting? re-cast , re-cast of original, remodeling of an original mold? I suppose it is all down to personal taste, and how you look at art which this is.

 

We all strive to impress others and gain personal satisfaction for what we do. That's human nature. I agree I said I don't want to support re-casters but I haven't really thought about it before.

 

As for everything on ebay is a re-cast, AP sells on ebay so is his a re-cast?

 

By modifying our Armor, Blasters and any other part of our costumes we are altering the original designs which is what we all do to any cast of our purchases.

 

I think sometimes we can all get a little obsessive about this and if the artist of this replica Screen used helmet is outstanding in his ability then that should be enough.(which I think he is).

 

After all this discussion I may just have answered my own question!!!!!!

 

Its very good and that's all that matters.
