    not too shabby. :D

    better than i thought...

    the "mic tips" are far more detailed and seem to have a sort of screen to them, and the protos were just solid circles... between the teeth there also appears to be a grill...

    and the interior... pretty sweet.

    tell us more.

    Ok...understand I am not a big fan of EPIII...or any of the prequels. But I love this helmet. Its very well made. It looks like the liner comes out and the lens is screwed in. Its very light and comfortable when you have it on. A bit stuffy.....need some fans in it I would imagine. Vision is excellent out of it.

    CRAP. The Spec. Ops can't be too far behind. Now I have to decide if I want to cancel my Spec. Ops order, or try to scrape up the cash for it.........the last couple months have tapped out my account. I was hoping to have more time to recover.

    Nice of them to take 8 months to deliver it, then WHAM, there you are.;)

    Nice looking helmet, though.

    Indeed, that is a nice looking helmet. Nicely finished out. Thanks for including the interior shot JP05. I've really benn diggin' on the EpIII clone armor, especially the helmet. I had pretty much talked myself out of getting one of these, but I think I may reconsider. I'd have to figure out where to put it :unsure

    The pristine look works well with the hard lines of the helmet.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Beat me to it, but I'm building a drive array on my main computer on... Christmas Eve.

    My thread title was going to be "Yes Virginia, there is an MR Clone Helmet."

    It is smaller than I expected, but quality control is good on this one (compared to last few MR products). I'll post additional pics when I'm back in business.

    Really Nice... Also wondering how much does this weigh? I'm awaiting arrival of mine and was just wondering? Tracking information at FedEx says the whole package weighs 2lbs, I'm just thinking that is light with all the packaging material. But it could be wrong info on the tracking page.

    Hey JP nice helmet. Thanks for putting up the pics so quickley. Looks nice. I can't wait for my SPEC OPS MR Clone helmet.
    I noticed the ring you are wearing while holding the helmet. Is it the One Ring? Who made it if it is and is it a nice one?

    I just wish they weathered them. They would look SO much better. The inside looks really comfy though.

    Careful what you wish for - *somebody* (no names, please.) will probably come out and say "but that would devalue our pristine 'as built' LEs..." :cry

    :p

    Nice helmet - hope they come in 10 different colors and then the weathered edition and then the EE edition (polarized, smoked, optical-quality, balistic-rated glass lenses, carbon-fiber-Kevlar composite liner in the polycarbonate shell, cooling fans, voice changer, BlueTooth cell phone earpiece, accustic ear protection, HEPA mouthpiece filter, water and Power Goo nipples, shiatsu scalp massager...)

    :D

    Interesting. MR finally delivers something for the clones.

    I wear a fan-made, ep3 helmet. I painted it Star Corps...and as I can tell, the paint job on that sample, though nice...clean...and perfect, is a 501st pattern with Star Corps colors. The mohawk needs to be yellow for Star Corps. The details are nice, but the interior...though sweet...is really sweat. Unless it lives only on a shelf...that will have to all be torn out and a couple of computer fans installed to make it bearable to wear...ask me, I know... I have 2 fans in mine.

    My 2 cents.

    These will be great for Halloween 2006. A year late.

    Later Brothers,

    John

    I can say I was fortunate enough to have purchased the Special Ops, Star Corps and Shock Trooper hlemets. I cannot wait till they come. I was a little disapointed when the MR update did not mention the Star Corps shipping in 2006. This is a pleasant surprise. Did anyone receive a shipping notice about this helmet from MR? Joy.

    Yeah, all the licensed stuff seems to have a white mohawk, while the film stills show otherwise. The Evolution Set has a Star Corps trooper with a white mohawk, too.

    Wasn't the star corps the ones which attacked Utapau? They had white mohawks.

    Merry Christmas Bro,

    I'll put a comparison pic if my system ever gets working again between an MR and an incredibly painted and battleworn EpIII Star Corps with fans, mike, etc. (as seen by George the man a couple months ago :)) Aside from being to slightly too small (Break out the contacts boys), the painted "screens," and the incorrect mowhawk, it's a nice shelf helmet. But for trooping, JM/WC all the way baby.

    How did you one up your wife's birthday gift for Christmas?

    All the best,
    Tim

    OK I may be wrong here, but didnÂ’t MR come out with the 501st, shock and reg clone helmet way before the Star corps came out?

    I’m mean really what kind of B/S will MR come up with next? Let me guess “This helmet came from another maker” BLA, BLA, BLA, we can’t produce on time, you get no discount, suck it up. Or what im sure they will say, we produced quality helmets. Only thing is will it be in this life time. MR sounds like my Ex-Spouse, Always has an excuse.
    Any one else wondering why?

    Who has the “good props take time to make”?
    Aint flying now.



    Hold on now

    I'm sure they'll release the limited ones first. Since this is the smallest size collection it's first, followed by the red one and the blue. The plain one should be be the last one out. If not people would buy the plain ones and paint and sell them as the limited ones.

    I think it looks great, Steve. Would love to see a pic on your noggin' just to see thye shoulder to head ratio...a lot of the fan made ones have been just too big for their own good (bobble headish)......now where is Dave the Bookie???? My Special Ops shouldn't be far behind.

    Then collectively, all the Star Corps helmets are incorrect. My helmet has a yellow stripe, like Bly's troops. The troops on Utapau were under Commander Cody, another unit (anyone chime in with the Unit number) and they wear orange-peach striped helmets, with white mohawks... with similarly colored inverted chevrons on their chest armor.

    [​IMG]

    My helmet is 2nd generation fan-made and is not a bobble-head...and the 3rd version is even more refined...and accurate. Mine has a helmet liner, 2 fans...one for intake and one for out-take.

    I believe the vent decals on the MR are backwards...or the taper is odd in relation to the cheek tube.

    Oh well, finally MR delivered "something" to clone fans. Lots of mods to make it comfortable to wear...and a good repaint will help. After all is said and done, $500-$600 to get it accurate.

    I like mine.

    Man

    Sometimes the best gifts at christmas is the ones we get our self's

    Not trying to sound self centered, but I think we all can relate to what I'm saying

    Example, I still have a couple shirts I havent worn that I got last christmas, I wouldnt even allow the dog to sleep on it its so ugly

    $500-$600 to mod the helm? Where are you going to get those mods done?..?.?.? Seems a bit steep
