    Whoah, is that Freeborn head a ROTJ or ESB? Is that Gino's Phil replica?

    Me too! Can't possibly imagine what their timeline for production would be for this, though. As Bryan, said in his intro, "Knowing our company, I can't tell you when." For such a big audience at such a big event, it's too bad the presentation didn't go smoother and that they had a typo on one of their slides: "Stuart Freeborn's 'orignal' casting."

    Looking forward to learning more.

    +1. None of this excites me right now. I'm with Clutch on his thoughts.

    Not impressed. They should make stronger efforts to publish the stuff they have anounced years before instead of such teasers.

    Many our undoubtedly with you in that regard.

    One has to wonder how long it'll be before we see any of these new announcements materialise, if ever.
    I can only hope there'll be a sudden change in their business practices in the not too distant future, as there's a few newly revealed pieces I'd very much like to acquire from them.

    So how long until they take pre-orders and deposits for these for release in 2020? Announcing new stuff isn't the best move for eFX. People are still waiting for things they've bought from them long ago.

    Yes, eFX will have to pick up the pace if it wants to get any of this stuff out in a reasonable amount of time.

    As far as busts are concerned I am not too interested in those.

    If they could do complete costume replicas, now that would be something else. But considering how long it takes just to do a helmet I don't know if that would ever happen.

    I like the idea of 1:1 busts, but these take A LOT of space. I own 4 life-size busts (2 similar with EFX photo) and they are literally eating my display shelves :)

    On the other hand, as cool as these busts from EFX might be, they will most likely be released the day we make contact with another civilization. :p EFX really needs to wake up

    Exactly. They have the coolest proyects, yet they take forever to be done. This is starting to remind me to other companies that I shall not name here. Of course efx delivers top quality, but as other companies is starting to have loooong production times, and just a few pieces in the market. In the long run that may be a problem.

    I guess most people at the audience took that as a joke. But knowing them as a customer that was a poor choice for a joke, and an ugly truth.

    Yeah no kidding. After I finally get my biker scout helmet it will be my first and last direct purchase from efx. These are great product reveals, but I won't be extending future business to them until they get their company infrastructure together to handle their throughput to meet the amount of product volume they have to turnaround. I'd rather they say something was going to take 2 years instead of present a timeline that they push out for many months after. Current customers may definitely understand and have this expectation and be okay with it, but it will be a real shock to new customers expecting to get something when it said and when they start asking only to get no response unless it's convenient for them.

    I agree on the joke. A chuckle ha ha, but very true. I wouldn't even do a presentation in public until I had all my ducks in a row with current orders.

    WTFrack! Did they ask you for premission. Let me guess... No.

    Ok that sets this up for me. I don't give my money with business runnig with practices like this. I'll try to find one of your sets if I'm lucky.

    By the way, our english friends RS props are producing a lot of stuff, direct from originals. No simmetry, no clean out. Sure their boxes are not that fancy, but finished items do come with a base a signed plate from the actor that wore the helmet. Plus they deliver on time. Just sayin'

    I might be wrong but I think my name never gets mentioned by Gino on anything. I would have liked to have helped Byran on this.... It's going to take a lot of detailing and re-crafting (sculpting to re-refine their Yoda) :rolleyes

    Wow..... well their rep just dropped even further knowing they took your sculpt photos and passed it as their own. Seriously??? I'm a but at a loss for words right now at how lousy that is to know....
