"UPDATE:[/COLOR] eFX changes the rules!
Besides having some teaser images of their upcoming Attack of the Clones Clone Trooper helmet, and Ralph Mcquarrie Darth Vader concept helmet, eFX announced that their original pre-order date for the 500 piece Stormtrooper helmet run has been canceled. Here's what eFX has to say :
As many of you know, we had originally announced that the pre-order day for our very first product, the Stormtrooper Helmet, was to be on May 5, 2008. However, since eFX is a brand new company, we are going to initiate many new groundbreaking ideas that some many even consider "sacrilege" since they will break some old "traditions". We have decided to scratch the whole pre-order process and establish a WORLDWIDE on-sale date when the product will be available the same day whether you are on Los Angeles, Tokyo or London! We will try to announce the availability date at least 30 days in advance. We think that our collectors will appreciate and like this new process.
- Be able to see images of the actual product before you purchase
- Allows you to better plan your finances since you will know exactly when your credit card will be charged
- Eliminates the frustration of waiting an uncertain amount of time before you actually receive your product.
It seems the email newsletters going out have random images showing new eFX products. Known so far are :
- Ralph McQuarrie Concept Darth Vader helmet
- Episode 2 Clone Trooper helmet
- Episode 4 Obi-Wan Kenobi Lightsaber
