    Anyone come across one of these in person? Found it online at the ToysRUs website:

    [​IMG]
    http://www.toysrus.co.uk/toys/star-wars-the-black-series-kylo-ren-voice-changer-helmet/TRUP1928770001

    There is a voice changer MASK version as well, but this is apparently a full helmet (not just the front half) - it's also twice the price.

    If anyone has actual in-hand pics of one I'd love to see it and see how accurate it is/could be.

    EDIT: Just found on ForbiddenPlanet that this is being shipped to retailers on September 30th.

    On the Star Wars toy unboxing livestream, they showed the helmet , but didn't unbox it. Here's a screen shot:[​IMG]

    Ordered one of these, i have the Disney voice changer mask and am pretty impressed (for the money) but this one looks much better and i will be using it for my costume.
    I think they will drop in UK around 1st October.
    Disney has done a great job with their toys, the Disney Saber is fantastic, easy to mod into an accurate hilt. My biggest cost so far has been fabric!

    My cheaper mask version :

    Yeah, it's VERY big. I didn't even know about this one, so I will return this one from target now.

    I just PO'd it and got my confirmation. $75 for me. Can't wait for this one.

    Is this like the Darth Vader one that came out a few years ago? I didn't think those were big enough to fit an adult head into.

    Just checked it again- I got to checkout and stopped there. Should be fine.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Not sure about that. Fortunately (in this case perhaps) I have a small head- I can never usually buy helmets!

    These are the dimensions they give, but that could just be the box.

    12.5" x 10.75" x 8.5

    Also, this looks like the speaker, pretty well hidden:

    I posted this on rebelscum as well and it was brought to my attention that you can save a decent amount of cash on a Black Series Tie Fighter pre-order as well. Just in case anyone is interested- use the coupon code. Personally, I ended up pulling the trigger on that one too!

    Definitely an interesting find, not sure it is big enough though. Think I will have to wait and see. Might be some great reference material though.

    I hope this is a 501st approvable helmet . I know that's asking a lot but I can dream . So I'm guessing you would need to take out the plastic visior and add black pantyhose mesh . ? So it looks screen accurate.

    My take is that this one will have the electronics of the voice changer mask and it will be a better made version the same size as the rubies(big) full helmet

    ...or my son will have an awesome stocking filler this xmas...

    Don't know if you're still having issues but i was using Chrome and it would not let me add to cart, so I switched over to IE (yeah...) and it worked just fine.

    That's weird- I used Chrome and had no problems. I'm glad you got it sorted in the end and I hope Dr. Talyn did too. Hopefully it'll be a nice helmet, and at the very least a lot of fun for us kids!

    My guess is a battery compartment, especially if the speaker is where I think it is (in between the chrome brow lines)

    I emailed a Hasbro executive I know this morning with some questions regarding this helmet. He said it will fit an adult (there's an adjustable strap on the inside) and Hasbro does have plans for more Star Wars replicas down the line.

    Just pre-ordered the helmet with the coupon code. Thanks for the link!

    Looking forward to getting this in hand and comparing it to Rocketeer's version I also have on pre order.

    And hopefully some day, Anovos will have it up for pre-order for a 2017 release.:lol

    From what I've heard, most online retailers have pulled it due to filling their pre-order allotment. Those that have pre-ordered it will get it shipped once they get the shipment themselves, others will have to wait until another batch comes along in a couple of months time, I suppose.

    Thanks @buckrawgers, I just purchased the helmet off of Entertaninment Earth as well. Eventhough there is no image, I guessed its in the same price range and made by Hasbro. So I am hoping it is the same one as well. Thanks.

    The most important thing I gotta figure out about this helmet is the size, because if it's anywhere near the rubies size then it's a pass. Age on the toysrus website goes up to 18. I am just worried that this will be a one size fits all and be huge. I have a smaller head.

    Calendars says it's 12.5" x 10.75" x 8.5" which I am assuming is the box.

    Also I don't know which stores this will ship to but i hope it goes to target. My plan is to snag one before anyone realizes the new product is out.

    It would be interesting to know how big the originalprop is.And if its huge like hell I have no problems with a prop that has the same size!;)

    Adam Driver is a tall guy, 6'4"... You can bet the helmet is large.

    He's actually only about 6'2", maybe 6'3" on a good posture day. Gwendoline Christie (6'3" and a half) is taller than Driver side by side.

    But yeah, still a pretty tall guy. About my height on average.

    I'm 5' 11" and leaner so I hope the helmet is a bit smaller but I doubt it will be. Anyone have any idea when this will drop in the states? I can't find any mention of it on US target wal-mart or toysrus sites.

    Ok so i seen this helmet in person there was one in the store on force friday was 48 in the cue and i got there at 10.00pm !

    the guy bought the only one, luckily he was nice to show it to me and put it on, its actually quite small but fit his rather large head, didnt get to hear the voice changer

    I am going to start to head hunt the toy stores as i was informed that they are sold in the shops just not online
