    Yes, a recreation from the original mask. Where di he get his hands on that? I just question the legitimacy of his claim.

    He says he used the mask as a refrence, never claims to have owned a screen used piece. I think people should be more carefull about shouting fraud around here, there is nothing at all wrong with this auction.

    I guess it can be attributed to the way you reading something and the way you interpret what is written.

    The way I read that is that the person actually physically used a screen used mask, meaning he had one in his hands when creating this one.

    Other people may interpret that differently.

    I have made dozens of props using ACTUAL screen used props as refrence, but I have never owned any of them. I am just saying people need ot be a little more careful around here before yelling fraud, or even "possible fraud".

    Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.


    Using a picture of an original prop is still referencing an orignial prop. He did not really say that he had the piece in front of him or that he had access to it.

    Don't we all manipulate the truth when we are trying to sell ourselves or anything we have?

    The original helmet featured in the pics on the auction was actually sold at an auction in the last couple of years, so since it's in a private collector's hands there's a good chance that this person has had access to it to create the replica. Personally I like it and I think he's done a grand job.
