Yeah I figured they would'nt sell out on the first day.

I hope they do sell out as Brian really worked hard on these.

It was truely a labor of love.


While this one isn't selling like the Vader, it doesn't look like they are going to have a problem selling out.

I'm so torn on this one. Would love to get it but like many others, already have a deposit or two in with them. I had it in my cart two different times yesterday but couldn't pull the trigger. I don't think my willpower will last, though.

Does anyone know if there are plans for a Cylon helment down the road? That would make my decision a lot easier as I'd love to display both together rather than just one.

I'm in the same boat, i really wanted to get this but with the Luke saber and Vader Legend already on order and the stormy coming up i can't swing it. I would love to get it but i must resist so i can get the Stormy Legend....hopefully.

Thanks for the info, Apollo. I'm sorry to hear that. Makes the decision that much tougher.

I was searching the eFX website and the best thing I could find is:

"The first release from our classic Battlestar Galactica line will be the Colonial Viper Pilot Helmet."

That implies there will be other releases in the classic Battlestar Galactica line but whether that will be ship replicas or other helmets or something completely different remains to be seen. If I knew there was a Cylon helmet coming, I'd be all over this.

At SDCC, eFX did have a screen used Cylon Helmet on display so we know they have access to the real thing.

On 8/11/11, Bryan had a Q&A session on RS and said the following about the Cylon Helmet.

Is anything else planned for the BSG line, like ships or maybe even a Cylon head?

To be honest, we are going to wait and see how the Viper Helmet does. We will be working with Richard Hatch on his battlestargalactica.com website to promote the Viper helmet.

It seems like eFX and knee-jerk go together at the RPF. :lol

I don't see why people have to bag on them when to my knowledge no has lost a dime with them or anything.

Production delays happen. Simple as that.

Would you rather them make them in the US and cost 3 times as much?

I agree with you 110%. But it seems like some people just have go off on them for some reason.

Ditto here,

I always am happy with the stuff I get from EFX, and feel like the wait is worth it. Especially with the CV Helmet Exclusives.

Patience is a virtue!

I'm in full agreement with you.

Hey that's what dealing with the public sometimes will get you though.

I don't mind production delays, but they don't answer emails, they don't give updates. I think they gave 1 update all year about the visors , that was it. They have very poor customer service. I bought one of the signature Luke helmets at CV, and still waiting on it. If they had regular updates or bothered to reply to emails, I'd have no problem waiting.

Yes a NON-SIGNATURE at a significantly lower price would be great!

I'd buy multiple helmets if they were closer to the $300 range!

At this price (if I buy one at all), one is my limit.

Disappointing how few have sold... If the bar is accurate, only about 125-150 have sold.

What a Catch-22 for me. I'd like one but only if a Cylon is coming down the road to pair it with. Sounds like they won't make a Cylon if the Viper doesn't sell well. So, looks like I've got to roll the dice, buy the Viper, and hope others do as well. Doesn't look promising right now.

I would feel like I was buying something I don't want, if I bought Sig-Edition.

If they do a non-sig edition, I'd probably buy two as well.
