    The title says it all.
    Apparently they've halted manufacture due to a "manufacturer's fault"
    Anyone heard more on this??

    I think this has happened before, on that occaision it was due to the fact that the shoulder bells kept dropping off. May be this time they've realised that the set up is not screen accurate :p

    They must have sent out accurate looking helmets by mistake.

    Or maybe it was a much better made costume.

    Maybe you're partly right. Perhaps LFL saw Jack's thread here http://www.rpf.invisionzone.com/index.php?...dpost&p=1214229 and decided it was too close to the real thing, so they need to mess it up some more.

    Hope Jack doesn't mind me linking his thread. The reason I woke up this morning was because Jack Bauer spared my life.

    Well they're quite difficult to get down here in Australia, my supplier was all set to get one when he hit me with "that" news

    I own one as well, although only about three parts are on my hero suit right now.

    I'd like to see something offical on the recall.

    Hmmm... where did this information come from... is this just an attempt to start rumors? I'm wishing it were true. I sent complaints about the helmet and from what I've heard, I'm not the only one. But I highly doubt they'd actually do anything about it.

    As I say........I go the info frm the supplier that was going to get me one from the U.S.
    This is what he said...
    "HI,
    SORRY TO GET YOUR HOPES UP SOON BUT WE HAVE JUST BEEN INFORMED THAT THE DELUXE MODELS ALL HAVE BEEN RECALLED BECAUSE OF A MANUFACTURERS FAULT,
    NEW MODELS WILL BE OUT IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS WILL KEEP YOU POSTED

    That's all I know

    Deluxe is different than the Supreme.

    He said deluxe, and I think he meant "Supreme"
    The photos he sent were definately of the "Supreme"

    In many exibits there have been replicas shown. Please show me a Replica of C3PO that is in fact accurate. Its VERY RARE.
    Also Darth Vader. In exibits they show a mix and somtimes some of the parts have been suplemented to the costume. I dont think that is the ROTS original movie suit. It might be a Original suit but not a movie suit.

    well, it does appear that they will not be available until June/July. That is the same thing that happened when they recalled over the shoulder hinges. I've been told by someone that spoke directly to Rubies that they were getting together a team to look into the complaints that they've had. Of course that doesn't help those of us that bought them already :cry but I really hope it's the mask they're fixing. You can buy those seperately... assuming that they get it right this time (well closer, I'm not expecting an MR or anything)
