Iron Man helmet sources

Back from the wilderness as I am, I am unfamiliar with who the major IM players are. Rather than weed through old threads trying to divine who's risen to the top, I thought it'd be quicker just to solicit opinions of folks who have been around the last few years.

I simply do not have the time to do any pepakura, but do have the $$$ to commission a helmet. I'd love a functional helmet that opens up, but not at the expense of a clean quality mold. I'd also love one that tracks whatever changes are coming to the Avengers version (though I understand that it's probably waaaaaay too early for that).

I'd also love to win Powerball tonight, and a pony of my very own, so if you can help with those, too......

So, who should I be talking to? Any info would be appreciated. Feel free to PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting here.
 
Would one of these work ok for you? The jaw is hinged as is the faceplate.;) Link to my JY thread a vid and other pics.

So, are your hinged ones a custom sculpt, or are they based off the ILM/production files?

Way back about 3 versions ago they were pep now they are my own sculpt. The new lid we have on the go is from the SW files. That version as I say will not have any hinges or jaw hinges just raw cast kits but the list is full at this time not sure we will be doing any more or not. We will see when I have the list complete.
 
As an owner of more than one of Clinton's lids (seems I've got one from each run!), I can only say that they are top notch!
 
Hey Squirk,
I've got one of Suckface's IM helmets. They are very nice.

I'm replacing it with one of Coofunkcurly's soon though. It'll have a lot of the details that aren't present in the cheek and mouth areas.
 
I wish I had the moolah for these. Fantastic helmets. Those above seem some of the best in regards to the finish. Still havent seen a WM helm that captures all the detail of the film though. Nor a MK2, come to think of it.

They're so beautiful! *cries*

LOL The War Machine pictures above is for a 3D print off the movie files, does not get any more detailed or real than that. It is in all regards the helmet from the movie. ;)
 
I have one of Clint's IM 3 piece helmets and it is incredible. It also fits, which most other masks to not for me. Still working out whether I can afford the new version with the working tracks, would love to add that to my collection for sure.
