    No wise cracks about how MR might go out of business after the Vader fiasco please...
    Not looking to start a flame thread.... :angel

    * ... took away my thunder ... :cry


    Seriously though, I can't see how this wouldn't be a good thing. In my opinion, there
    isn't much that could go wrong with a project like this ... there would be no painting
    issues (curing, ect.), and not nearly as cumbersome to pack and ship. Why the hell not .
    I'd buy one in a heart beat ...

    Pull, assemble, vac metalize, pop in LED assembly (or bulbs for you sticklers out there), pack, and ship.

    $399.00

    I agree, except they'd probably still charge $900 even though it's easier to do. :rolleyes

    Considering machined eyepieces, neck bolts, and antenna plus electronics I think they'd be more difficult to do than the Clone Troopers. It probably wouldn't be wearable but they'd still likely finish the inside somehow or maybe make it solid (replicate the ESB severed head look?).
    My guess would be more like $500-$600 (more than Clone less than Vader).
    SE would be an obvious extra version. Anthony Daniels would't pass that up.

    I don't think they would be making one anytime soon.

    To many other projects with more mass appeal.
