    OK, I have been getting so many e-mails and PM's asking for at least a "hint" of what we are working on! So, here is just ONE of the items in development!

    [​IMG]

    This is the ORIGINAL pattern that Lucasfilm generously let me use to cast our master pattern! Since this is a LEGEND, no scanning or 3D Modeling!

    I am sure that most of you can figure out what it is! If not, you are going to have to wait for our upcoming newsletter. (Yes, I did say newsletter . . . now you can get off the floor! hahaha!)

    I don't use this very often but OMG!! Finally something that isn't a stormtrooper helmet! I know a ton of guys who've been clamoring for this for a long time with with no alternatives aside from fan stuff that still does not match the level of accuracy that a lot of other SW helmets are afforded, altmann's very rare lid, or the don post junk/rare stuff.

    in while it's still on page one!

    anyway, i've built a scout for a friend, and i'm not really a scout guy. but this is very cool! the fact that they're letting you use the original is phenomenal. gives me hope for future products.

    A brilliant representation of ILM model maker Ira Keeler's artistic handiwork.

    Geez, Bryan--how'd they ever let you borrow that?!

    finally a replica prop that I would buy add to my own collection:eek

    EFX your bloody great:thumbsup

    fingers crossed us UK chaps don't get fleeced on import duty when its shipped from the states:angry

    would be good to see the rest of the moulds, and it's interesting to see that they are made from wood

    always thought that these where made from plaster moulds similar to the TK helmets

    great to see some proper craftsmanship went in the making of the helmet moulds.

    for any other scout fans here's pics of possibly a test/unfinished helmet that I found when Jez was putting together information for his vid of a screen used scout helmet

    I stumbled across these above images following my own search on the net.

    Sadly the owner of these sold them off and didn't have any other pictures.

    great to see one of the best SW helmets making a come back :thumbsup

    Great to see. As usual, I'm in for all these helmets.

    Really curious to know where this fall in the timeline of the Legend and McQuarrie Stormtroopers that were previously introduced.

    Wish there was an AT-AT Driver in the LFL archives, but it seems the only existing one of the duo made for ESB is in the hands of a private owner according to jez @ SWhelmets

    This is great news!!!!

    So from what I understand you used the original LFL wood molds to vacuumform the parts which you made positive molds from for final vacuumformed production pieces?

    Wow, this is very, very cool. I've never been particularly bothered about owning a scout helmet, but this project could easily change that.

    I'm seriously impressed with the eFX Legend line; it's simply perfection across the board. I could never have imagined myself buying a licensed replica helmet in a million years, but now I have two on my list... :thumbsup

    Maybe Efx can consider giving rpf members an early opportunity to pre-order the biker scout helmet before it is available to pre-order to the general public....the vader legend helmets went fast

    @EvilRocketeer ~ great idea:thumbsup

    will the helmets come with the head band set up inside the helmet including the chin cup?

    also any other pics of the wood bucks used to make the helmet?
