    Thanks Astralrayn!.... Sizing on a helmet will always be difficult, because there is no way your going to make everyone happy. We come in many shapes and sizes..... Granted the back and a smidgen on the top of the helmet is perhaps larger than it should be, and if your a smaller guy this sculpt may not suit you.... I actually have mine on display and it looks great!
    But... Hopefully... Soon... We get some more leaks in the future ???.... Maybe, I'll have to go back to the sculpting stand

    Man, I can't wait for more details to be released so we can see the next version!

    I completely understand where you are coming from. I saw one of these next to a Vader face plate and it was a comparable size. I am by no means 6'4", or broad shouldered. When I wore my Vader, as someone mentioned, I had my shoulder armor to help balance out the big dome. I think there are subtle things that can be done with Ren to help with that illusion as well. I just can't wait to get my copy and put it on for the first time. And MasterEdI I hope you didn't take my last post as a slight at all. I have searched high and low for anyone who has even come CLOSE to the quality, accuracy and skill involved in your sculpt, and I am brought back here every time. You NAILED this, and I am elated that I am lucky enough to receive one.

    Hey MasterEdi, thought I'd share that your helmet made Sneaky Zebra's 2015 SDCC cosplay music video:

    Keep the pics coming! I can't wait to get my bucket from Saberbay. MasterEdi's rendition is one of the most accurate out there. What are you guys/gals using to shade the visor area and vent holes and still have max visibility?

    Making a call out...

    I've seen lots of people saying the scale on Edi's helmet is wrong but I would like some proof.

    Does anyone have the right body size and the helmet to model?

    When I saw Edi's photos of the helmet, the scale looked pretty good. I also see another type of helmet that looks TINY from another creator, but the size different is soo dramatic.

    So, I'd love to see someone with this helmet on who is at least 6'4" like the actor. Most of the people who I see with the "bobble head" effect are about 5'10"-11" or so and there is a massive body structure difference from someone who is 5'11" and someone who is 6'4".

    Edi scaled his based on the prop on display and he has a pretty good eye.

    Someone give me some proof.

    Good one! Just what I was wondering! I hear a lot of people saying that to.
    I'm about 6'2, so I'm thinking it'll look just right with my height. Adam is 6'4.
    Mine is on it's way, so I'm very curious

    With proper padding it is fine. In fact, it is still the best one I have seen so far. Just my .02. Great job Ed!

    Adam Driver is listed as 6'3" so he is probably in reality 6'1" Hollywood tends to BS people a few inches taller than they are. I think the biggest issue with the helmet is the width personally, I just don't see Adam Driver having a 26" circumference head sorry, the guy is thin and lanky he would look like a bobblehead. He'll he looks skinny in a 4 layer costume! David Prowse he's not. I do think Masteredi nailed the details and shape of the helmet and I look forward to whatever he does next.

    Edi is that your helmet in the comparison? From one of the comments, it was bought here and has a clay sculp texture.

    Lol!!!... Yes that is my Helmet in the comparison... Obviously, by they're comments they're not too happy with it! ... Haters will Hate... But guess what, they still bought one of mine! Haha! I have not bought one of theirs... In reality I believe theirs is too small and mine (based off concept art) is too large.... Well, at least they have a decent face sculpt to copy now and at the very least, possibly improve on theirs, haha!... Round 2 will begin soon, I have a feeling I'll be upsetting more 'professional' helmet makers still... At the very least, I'll give them something new to mock...

    Pshhhhhhh screw the haters. You produced probably the best representation of that helmet; how anyone could be dissatisfied with it is beyond me. I'd pick one up but unfortunately I have a stormy to finish and a sandy shortly afterwards.... but you could give me one for free lol

    At 5'6" I would say yes. The helmet is made for a tall guy to be in scale.

    Finally finished painting & weathering mine up the other day. I gave it a bit more of a used, beat-up & rusted look with the weathering, using a dry brush technique with black & brown acrylic paints. I'm fairly pleased with the results. Here's some pics. Enjoy!
