    Does anyone here know if anyone produced a copy from the Fifth Element police helmet?

    I was asking because I was the highest bidder - I wanted to take a set of moulds and make copies if I won.
    I wish I hadn't asked now...

    And you're admitting your intent to recast, you're gonna get in BIG trouble pal.

    Cool, now we can turn an already volatile thread into a recasting debate..

    I'm only voicing what I've heard here in the past, but I think the common opinion is that if you purchase a bonafide screen used piece (or studio made, or whatever) it's not significantlly frowned upon if you want to knock it off. The trouble seems to come (at least on this forum. Ethics issue from forum to forum) when you recastedededed the work of a local artisan, or member of the board who originally produced or sculpted it.

    how that line is drawn is beyond me, but that's what people seem to think.


    And for the record, there is no such word as "recasted" or "casted". They are NOT real words, and are improper conjugations of the verbs "To Recast" and "To Cast". Grammar, folks. Grammar.

    Making a copy of a screen-used prop is not recasting.

    Making a copy of a copy of a screen-used prop is.

    Unless you own the original.

    ...

    ...

    I think.

    That helmet looks wrong for some reason, it may just be the photography, but weren't the perspex areas blue?

    A comedy of errors...

    I suppose we can add fuel to the fire by mentioning who has owned an original. ;)

    What the hell are you talking about?.
    I'm bidding on an original prop - I'm not talking about taking a copy from another fan made item.
    I suppose you better go through all the threads looking for other people who intend to or have already cast screen used items and tell them that they're gonna be in BIG trouble.
    I think you may find quite a few.
    May I suggest that you read the thread properly (and the coc) before you start posting remarks -PAL.
