    Apparently on their website they say they were looking in one of their warehouses, and found some of the limited addition of 750 wedge helmets. Just spreading the news if you guys dont know, and want one. Though you’ll still probably have to wait a year to receive it. They have also just revealed a few of the very limited Empire Strikes Back signature helmets. Update

    Limited edition Wedge helmets. ($680)
    Luke ESB Signature edition helmets. ($899)
    Vader limited edition is back. ($900)

    The Major Scalping begins.

    Vader Concept. ($9500)
    Update Luke limited helmet. ($799)
    Limited Luke cameback again. ($799)
    Limited X Wing SSM Signature edition. ($7000/$6500)
    Limited Tie Fighter SSM. ($2400)
    Vader limited back again. ($999)
    Vader legend ($1799)

    Thanks for reading,

    Matthew

    Apparently they were right next to a bunch of cocaine and the cure for blindness :lol (Sorry, wrong franchise)

    But I have to ask: ONE of their warehouses? How many do you need?

    My mistake it said on their site, “ We were rearranging our warehouse, when we came across across a few of these helmets left.” So they could have 2 warehouses, but it most likely is one. Sorry for the confusion.

    This went against my better judgment, I took the risk, and picked one up. Always wanted a good X Wing helmet. And have always liked the design a lot.

    Wish me luck,

    Hopefully since they seemingly have them in hand, all boxed up, it’ll take a couple weeks, at most.

    The idea that they would have inventory that they had no knowledge of for several years is what worries me. I wonder what else they have?

    I mean they did the same thing with their PCR Stormtrooper helmet.

    It appears these are now sold out again. Hope everyone who wanted one was able to.

    I hope it’s not like that with them, but who knows. I don’t think they are going to pop up again, but then again it is EFX.

    ^ Those padded pieces are included with many MR and EFX helmets. I keep them when having the helmet on display

    Gah, always wanted this one - literally spent a year scouring ebay for an affordable one a couple of years ago. If only it wasn't for the damned expensive international shipping and customs!

    Yeah man, I’m in California and shipping obviously wasn’t really a problem for me, but tax was. It’s a shame you’d didn’t get one. Hopefully you find one in the future.

    I’m sure I’ve seen someone with an RS Wedge. Might be worth speaking to them? Definitely a better delivery option in the U.K.

    Yeah, but RS X-Wing should be ABS and FX ones are Fiberglass, much more sturdy!

    Got mine today. I’ve been wanting one for a while but unwilling to pay ebay prices. Thanks Aldo for the heads up. I probably would have never known otherwise.

    Your welcome, glad you got one. I’m really curious on how many helmets they had. As they got rid of them very quickly.

    Sadly I missed out on it, but EFX apparently found a few of their signature edition Luke helmets recently.

    I picked up up one of their Luke ESB signature lids last week. I missed the posting on their website but emailed them anyway to see if they had anymore and was shocked when they said they did. They were selling for $799 plus shipping which is awesome as there is one on eBay right now that’s up to $1350 with 3 days left to run.
    I’d been after this lid for so long, i’m hoping they find a few stormtrooper LE lids hidden away as well.

    Big news sadly, I can’t afford it at the moment, though maybe. EFX in the next few days will list a few of their signature edition Luke Helmet they found. I do not know the amount they have. They might list it tonight, I really don’t know more. Just a heads up, to keep your eyes open.

    Happy buying,

    Matthew

    EFX had a few products on their site, but they deleted them afterwards. One of them was the small Falcon but with 3 signatures, including Ford's. Price was around $3000. Now is gone

    That’s what they claimed, Bryan emailed me, because I asked about when They found more the first time.

    When JonnyB first posted his ESB Luke X-Wing helmet, three weeks ago, I immediately emailed them asking (very politely) if they had more. At that time, they still had a photo of it on their website. I wasn't expecting a reply, it was more a shot in the dark, but figured what the hell. By the next morning, the photo was off their page, & I had no reply, so I thought I was too late. I put it out of my mind, moved on, & completely forgot about it.
    Then, to my shock, I got an email the other day (Tuesday?) from Bryan asking if I was still interested. I honestly thought about it for about an hour, before responding (again politely) that, yes, I would be interested. Again, no response. I figured IF they indeed had some, there had to be an incredibly small amount, & my time "thinking" knocked me out of the running. Again, thinking I missed out, I put it out of my mind.
    Then, yesterday, I was almost knocked on the floor when Bryan CALLED ME!.... ON MY PHONE!!! He had my number from my customer file. But I was still floored!
    Anyhoo, he said they indeed had a very VERY small number of helmets. 4 (3 now... cause I got one ;)) to be exact. & I'm sure it's less now, IF there's any. He said they're Artist Proofs, & he was emailing people in order of who emailed him first inquiring about them. Mine should be here Wednesday :)

    Contacted Bryan earlier this week about the sig Luke helmets and he said they're not going up on the website; just selling to those that contact him via email. So I ended up snagging one along with the Death Star tiles. Should be shipping out tomorrow.

    I was about to "like" this post.... then I read the last bit, & was like, aawwee :cry
    I almost past on it, because I got a lot out there with other projects & runs, but in the end I had to get it. ESB is my favorite Star Wars movie, & I like the heavier weathering on this over the ANH helmet. That, & it's signed.

    Same here, almost passed on it due to funds. Look forward to seeing it in person and how different it is from the RS props Luke.

    I ALMOST got the RS Luke. However, as I missed their first run -& am a very impatient man- I went with the ANOVOS.
    Now for the REAL Twilight Zone feeling. I'll be getting a 7 year sold out eFX helmet BEFORE the preorder helmet from ANOVOS :wacko

    Seems odd being impatient you'd go with the Anovos. RS has a 4 week turnaround with the Luke helmets.

    I’m glad it’s all worked out for you guys. I’ll probably just pick up an RS Luke someday. My hope is that they find some Luke reveals. Wouldn’t that be something.
