I just received an email from MiM about a "PCR" Stormtrooper helmet being released in late October.
Does anyone have any info by chance?
Stormtrooper Episode IV PCR Helmet
PCR stands for Precision Cast Replica. Its basically an idealized stormtrooper helmet. It has all of the assymetry and other imperfections cleaned up. They have already released this in ESB colors and a Sandtrooper version. The ANH coming up is the same helmet, although I thought I remembered seeing it with curved rather than flat lenses some time back. I have the ESB version and for what you pay, it isn't too bad.
That's weird. It looks like the MR CE face and dome (esp.ly the frown and wrong tbe stripes) with the MR prototype ears ie smaller but with obvious ear cap and 2 screws?
Maybe its just a generic pic? Or they fd a way of frankensteining a helmet together from old MR molds
For that kind of money you can get a nicer, albeit wonky style, helmet more akin to the ones seen on screen. You have to build it ur self though.
Is this the one that RS Props is making? I haven't heard it called that but it sounds like what they were working on.
Been wanting a helmet like this for a long time!
Good to hear of RS Props as a possible second choice of vendors - I'd rather not deal with the first one.
For the price and it already been assembled I went ahead and preordered one from BigBadToyStore.
Going by the picture it sucks!
Stay away. It looks like the same ol same ol MR/eFX etc just plain ugly.
last night I didn't look at the link, that is NOT the RS Props one. The RS Props helmet looks way much betterer.
Definitely based on MRCE.
What a piece of junk
If you want accuracy, this is not the one to get. The PCR is meant more for someone who may want a stormtrooper helmet, but not want to shell out alot of money for it. I recently bought the RS Propmaster one and, not only is it an extremely accurate helmet, its also got the pedigree of coming from an original screen used helmet.
All these negative comments is making me think that maybe I should cancel my order for this.
Yes there is rs props which is like the new flavour of the month. It is lovely, but out of my price range at the moment. But there are loads of options. In the 100 to 200 bucks range theres AP, ATA, CAP-W etc. All share a common lineage and have links to a screen used lid; albeit several times remived now.
