    RS Prop Masters 10th Anniversary Stunt Helmet

    Actually that was their original sales pitch, however the reality is that is incorrect. The plastic they are using is still manufactured in RAL 7032 (what they are using) by many companies still to this day. It is not expensive or hard to get. Companies in Germany still manufacturer it and...

    TM/Troopermaster has recast CFO

    The "grudge" is an excuse to divert attention to the fact 90% of the stormtrooper items he has "sculpted" are infact recasts of others work or licenced pieces. Parts of his ROTJ armour derive from the rubies supreme suit (shoulders, hands and perhaps some arm components). Months ago it was...

    RS Hero Stormtrooper with Screen Lineage (first edition)

    Wow. 98! Still waiting for #60. Getting a bit worried, the ridge above the center tooth and adjacent holes appears overly soft on these. Compared to the original hero helmets it should be much more defined.

    Might wanna turn on the tele and watch some news bud.

    eFX SCOUT TROOPER HELMET LEGEND EDITION!!

    Seems like a silly way to vacuum form the rear of the helmet. With those undercuts around the 'ears' obviously they would have a hard time removing it from the buck. It's split to hell. I'm surprised they released that image. Not only is it inaccurate, it's a flawed design.. Glad I got a refund...

    Black Series Boba Fett Helmet Announced

    Eb games in Australia are also selling them already. Picked one up in store yesterday after seeing it listed as in stock online. The paint is quite a bit duller/different shade compared to my EFX PCR. But boy the size and shape is actually really close. Can't beat it for the price. To be honest...

    RS Hero Stormtrooper with Screen Lineage (first edition)

    Whoa! Interested to know which of the two colours they are matching. One would think it's the darker green as the other lighter shade is an off the shelf product.

    How accurate is RS Props' TIE pilot vs SDS vs CFO?

    The helmet pictured being the basis for the RS tie.

    RS Hero Stormtrooper with Screen Lineage (first edition)

    Pictured above is one from the first run. I own 4 of them. Again, they are not without issues. I think their hero is ok. The width of the unassembled faceplates looks good. I can only assume the narrowing could possibly be down to an assembly issue.

    To be honest, their stunt is not without issues either.

    Tom’s ROTJ Vader MOM saber!

    Just an observation regarding the original control box. If you look at the base where it is mounted to the saber you can see two notches. Window roller carriages share similar notches at the base to allow different positions of the rollers. Perhaps that could be another avenue to explore?

    Chronicle / Efx Mandalorian prop replicas

    Yeah, maybe your right. Although I'm sure I read that this was the whole reason why they teamed up with Chronicle.. so they could make them in house.

    Chronicle / Efx Mandalorian prop replicas

    Wasn't that thing being touted as being made IN the states? EFX flat out lied, or are getting senile. What a shock.

    RomanProps: STEEL IS REAL V2

    If you want to darken steel. Leave it in hydrochloric (pool) acid, vinegar.. or ferric chloride if you have it. It will etch/darken the steel in about 30 minutes. Afterwards soak it in bicarb soda and water to neutralize the acid. I used to do up butchers steels the old way, and by far those are...
