    Now... if I could just get past the issue of the flat lenses(ep3 issue, not MR, I know) I may get one...

    I REALLY hope MR comes out with an ANH version(no symmetry discussion, please ;))...

    Great pics. Thanks for sharing. :)

    LOL... Yeah, this helmet is way too reflective to be snappin pics in your birthday suit...........LOL.

    I am very happy with it. There are some very very minor imperfections, but nothing I can't live with. In general, the helmet is a pretty perfect example.

    You'll notice irregularity on the trimming in the slots on the spaces between the "teeth".................I swear you don't see them in person like you do in those pics... You have to hold it a very particular way to even notice it.

    The two criticisms I have is that the neck piece, though it's pretty........doesn't somehow sit flush with the facemask. Mine has a noticeable space on each side and one side has more space than the other. It's far too "loose" in it's connection. The other is that vader's right tusk was trimmed at a weird angle and the tusk tip sits up a bit too far. Nothing I can't fix of course. Neither of these things really take away from my enjoyment of this new "precious"

    Looks great.

    Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' 'bout.

    Nice pix Dave. :thumbsup ...

    I've asked this of others...but how do you find the thickness of the cast? Also, can you tell if there's a clear on top of the paint?

    Yes they are flat. There is a curve to the entire eye from side to side..........but top to bottom completely flat. The pics give the illusion of a "domed" appearance I think.

    I would actually like to see it next to one of your other Vader helmets, Vaderdarth....I'm keen to see the relative differences in the faceplate size versus the dome size....either the ROTS dome is bigger or the faceplate is smaller than the OT Vaders....perhaps for another thread but still would be nice to see :D. The finish is striking....I actually like an all black helmet...

    :cheers,

    That is the most BREATH-TAKING Vader paintjob I've ever seen......It looks like a freakin' mirror.

    I can't find one thing truly wrong with it, other than the very minor things Vaderdarth mentioned. It truly is a near-perfect representation of what we saw on (and off, for that matter..) screen.

    If I were you, I'd keep a translucent plastic bag over it most of the time - even if it's on display - just so you'll never have to worry about dusting it. It makes me really uneasy to think about a couple of big, dark, hulking fingerprints staring back at you from the top of the dome area. :eek Ughh..

    It will likely go under a plastic display case at some point. It just seems a fitting way to display it. It won't hurt my feelings nearly as much to scratch a display case.........LOL.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. :)

    Those pics pushed me towards ordering this helmet. All the other pics I saw were turning me off of the helmet but your lid is beautiful.

    I may consider buying this helmet once all the issues surrounding it have been resolved.
