    Saw the first movie. Pretty cool. Though Mark Hammil looked awful with that mustache.

    I'm a big fan of the Guyver anime movies. I have some unfinished Guyver models and this helmet that I made a while back.

    Someone made the Guyver unit...the coiled up thing. Can't remember who or where it was.

    I'm a huge Guyver fan.

    There's a great costuming website at http://www.bioweapons.com, some great stuff there, although I've tried emailing the guy a few times and have had no luck in a response. *.

    I have a small head, so it fits my head, snug, but fits. I sold a casting a while back and have a couple of castings in my garage that needs some TLC, but haven't had time to work on them.

    hi guys,

    got my guyver head this morning and it looks awesome.

    i dont think i can mod it to be wearable so im gonna trick it out with lights in the eyes and im gonna work on the control metal to see if i can rig some leds into that aswell.

    anyone got the guyver unit prop?

    I used to have a latex mask molded off the movie molds. I needed some money at the time and sold it..... a big regrate to this day :cry

    This was about 10 years ago..... a friend of my was the bass player in Screaming Mad George's band, so he took me to George's shop in Sun Vally and check out some of the cool Guyver props.

    Anyone know of a source for these movie resin heads in the U.S.?
    I see them on ebay being sold by sellers from the Phillipines and Thailand. I really don't like to buy stuff from there and support recasters.

    yeah a friend of mine cut it in such a way that it was wearable, cut it along sculpted in seams and it turned out pretty good, its just heavy resin. Mine had a few cracks in it that you can see i was patching up.

    So it kinda hinges like a Power Ranger helmet?? I thought of sculpting this and casting in as a Mask with a foam Core just like the Originals.

    Just FYI......On the movie Guyver mask, the eye holes are actually on either sides of the forehead control metal (between the muscle details). This makes lighting the eye lens easier.

    Unlike Ultraman masks which sits very high on your head to make you look taller, the Guyver mask have small anime facial features and sits very low on the mask, thus the costumer's eye line is much higher than the sculpted mask's eye lens.

    Probably at Bioweapons.com.

    And Zaphod, yeah, Hamill looked pretty bad with that mustache.

    And Actually, it would be relatively easy to secure the helmet or any other armor piece with rare Earth metal magnets. Hot Glue, or pockets to secure the magnets on the inside.

    I saw someone on deviantart who was selling the guyver units. I contacted him a while back but never heard back from him. A shame too because that thing was gorgeous.

    That person from deviantart has a website called raptor arts studio. He used to sell them but I don't think he does anymore. I regret not buying one of those guyver units.
