An MR email update is supposed to go out this week. I am also wondering about the Shocktrooper helmet - it seems like forever since I ordered one.

I ordered the special ops in April last year and the Shock Trooper in May. The last thing I got from MR was in response to an inquiry that I made with them:

"The Shock troop helmet is still in the processing stage. We hope to
have these available as soon as possible. You will receive an email
confirmation of shipping when it is shipped out."

That was January 30th.

In other news the Star Corps helmet showed up yesterday.

I'm just wondering how long it takes them to print up some plaques for the Spec Ops helmet

Really...

And here I thought MR discontinued the use of display plaques. You truly do learn something every day...

*edit
And in an attempt to keep resale values up, MR has decided to reduce the number of Shocktrooper helmets sold...

to 5.

They discontinued the numbered plaques for these helmets. There will still be different plaques with the overall edition size. I.e. 1/500...

I won an MR Shock Trooper helmet on an eBay auction last year, paid a deposit, and have kept in regular contact with the seller since then. Like the rest of you, I've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the helmet.

Last week, the seller told me the whole transaction has fallen through. It turns out that he ordered the helmet not directly from MR, but through his MR authorized rep. And the rep, frustrated with the problems caused by this delay, has decided not to carry MR products any more.

So the dealer refunded the seller's deposit, and last week the seller refunded my deposit.

Back to square one. :(

Try emailing MR directly. We know there's at least 1 more than before since Xizor cancelled. :)

And what about the Special Ops????  Remember those?  What on earth is going on???
[snapback]1201676[/snapback]​

Exactly.

I cancelled my SpecOps after waiting nearly a year, stories of horrible paint problems, "recalled" helmets w/o plaques and certificates, and recently learning they discontinued the plaques. I'm not paying $400 for a LICENSED and LIMITED EDITION prop with that kind of "professional" track record.

I am NOT impressed with MR. Have they done ANY helmets without messing up something? Rocketeer, Vader, Clones.............what's next in line to mess up?

Spiderman mask doesn't look great either. If that Knitting Barn Knockoff was indeed theirs.:unsure

So is MR giving up on the individually numbered plaques for the Shock as well? I thought they only had paint issues on the shock.

If so I will probably cancel my one year old order.

I emailed them the beginning of Feb about the status and the QC delays and this was their response.

Yes all helmets are on hold for the QC inspections. We hope to have this finished by early March or February. EveryoneÂ’s order is still valid and will be ready to go once the inspections are over. Thank You. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Jerry

Really vague and no mention of plaque issues.
