Hi guys,

I have just recieved my OPS helmet overseas directly to the Canary Islands :p ... the helmet is really really GREAT, I must admit... I really LOVE IT ...

The problem is that (like my seller told me could happen)... it arrived with NO COA and NO PLAQUE... just the helmet and the stand... I dont even know that serial # is the helmet ...

I´m a little worry about the "number" of it, let´s see if my seller can "tell me for sure" what number is, and let´s see how long MR will take to send it to me...:(.

P.S. I will make a full "photo session" tomorrow and I will post them here ;).

















Ben.

EDIT FOR ADDING HIGH RES. PICTURES, HUGE SIZES: beware:

Let me know what do you all think ... There are some pics comparing the MR OPS with a GF Stormtrooper helmet... and also some pics of a GF armor with the MR OPS Helmet.

Glad yours arrived safely... I'm assuming there are no defects.... That sucks that yours didn't come with a CoA or plaque, but you know what to do about that.... Mine is on delay for the exact same reasons, and I can't wait for it to arrive.... I can't wait to see pics :)

Here is Spain is all dark (night) at this moment, so pics would not be so good, so, it will be better to take them tomorrow, with natural light... ;).

But I will do tons of pics .

Apparently MR "misplaced" the documents... when found, they're suppose to be shipped to retailers...

I'm waiting for mine, also.

As for the serial number, it's on one of the stickers on the box.

If you got it in its original shipping box, on the outside of the box, on the MR sticker that has the barcode on it, you should see it list what WAS suppose to be your plaque number....

like in this picture....

Yes, that is true... but I dont know why the seller sent me the box with that stiker cover with white black sticker, and with a pack-tape over it: :confused :confused




In any case, I removed the pack tape, and I was able to see that my helmet is the #239... ;) nice number, not as nice as #1 but :).

I will try to take TONS of pics tomorrow.

Glad to hear your helmet is in good shape, although it's a drag that you have to wait for the plaque and paperwork. :unsure

I received my Spec Ops helmet last week, shipped to me in Tokyo by my dealer in the U.S. Plaque #221, not too far off from yours. Like you, I love my helmet, which is in perfect condition; no problem with the pull or finish. And, happily, my plaque and paperwork were included in the box, just as they were supposed to be. So there are some Clone Trooper helmets shipping without any problems. :)

Just curious: Does your shipping carton have a black stamp on the top box flap that says "INSPECTED" on it? Mine does... but the box in which my Star Corps helmet arrived a couple of weeks earlier does not.

Here's hoping you get everything from MR with as little trouble as possible.

Well, there was a round yellow sticker on the outside of the protection white cork that says: "QC PASSED"...

What I dont know is how a box can pass a QUALITY CONTROL Without the COA and the PLAQUE ???

Let´s see what MR can do for me, and how long do they take to send my stuff

I found that round yellow "QC PASSED" sticker on the styrofoam packing shell inside the carton, too, for both my Star Corps and Spec Ops helmets. In fact, I've seen that same sticker on the inner packing shell of every item I've ever bought from MR.

But I had never seen the black "INSPECTED 3" stamp on the top flap of the outer shipping carton until I received my Spec Ops helmet. I went to check the cartons of several other things shipped in the past from MR (including the Star Corps bucket) and they do NOT have that black stamp on the outside. So I wondered if it is a sign of the "reinspection" process that MR began in the time between shipping my Star Corps and my Spec Ops a couple of weeks later.

Yeah, that's pretty irritating.

I suspect the yellow "QC PASSED" sticker on the outside of the styrofoam shell may indicate that MR has inspected and passed whatever is inside the shell. Alas, the COA and plaque are meant to be in a bag taped to the outside of the shell.

That said, several people posted complaints about wonky pulls and rippled finishes on their Clone Trooper lids... and no doubt those buckets had the yellow "QC PASSED" sticker on them, too. :(

I would guess that it means QC was passed for what was inside the the styrofoam box, and that the plaque and CoA would be taped to the box later

Quality control is checking for damge or imperfections in the helmet. It has nothing to do with plaques and COAs. That's like saying your car is a lemon because it doesn't have floor mats. As long as the helmet has no defects in either manufacturing or paint applications, it will pass QC.

Looks nice, I'm not diggin the blue paint on that front "tooth" though
Yeah, the blue paint bleeding onto the middle tooth is a shame. :(

The helmet looks pretty good with that GF armor, though. :)

Ok, looks like the debate is over about the size, (which i'm sure it was anyways) this pic says it all:
