Yeah, I would definitely steer people wanting to recreate the asymmetry of the original prop away from the Black Series TK. Even if one is wanting a good representation of the R1 helmet, work is required. I have some lineage helmet kits to work from in correcting the R1 alterations -- reshaping the tears and traps, correcting the number and size of pinstripes, recreating the OT earcap greeblies, etc. -- as well as good reference to correct the other things -- leveling the brow band, filling the tube indents to paint them as topical stripes, extending the front undercut and replacing the annunciator cover with one that goes further back, and so on.I hate the Black Series R1 TK helmet more the more I work on it and find various issues with it. Although, my goals have changed over time. In the beginning it was to have been a representation of a sloppily put-together ANH helmet, but now I want it to be my vision of an idealised version, and so my standards are set so much higher.
I find it to match the original prop in most gross and fine dimensions, with a level or correction and tweaking I'm comfortable with. Everyone's mileage differs.
