    Do write the email and let the bigwigs in Lucasfilm and Disney know about this. Can't take this lying down any longer. It isn't fair to paying customers. It's not like a non-delivered pizza. We talking about a 600 bucks big ticket item. We truly deserve answers

    I wrote both Howard and Chris. The more email they receive, the more likely it is that action could be taken. The Legend Edition was $899.00.

    Indeed. They might respond or they might not. But this has taken way too long. They sitting on tons of money paid by collectors for 4 long years. At least we do our part

    Do you think that they still have the tons of money?If the company goes bankrupt the money is lost forever.Thats why I would never pay something full for a preorder.
    And for the EFX shipping+customfees to germany,I could buy me a second legend Scouthelmet.So can you really ever sell this for the double price or more one day?I say No.
    Look on the Vader legend helmet offers on ebay...the same guys.every week.And donīt forget the great RS scout helmet alternative.And the weathering of the EFX legend Scouthelmet looks very bad.Iīve never seen a so bad sprayed scouthelmet in the movie.All in all its no need to pay in full for this thing.My view.

    It almost happened to me with Legend Vader: $700 shipping, to that add the VAT 20%, customs and I could have gotten a second helmet. Glad I got my Legend from a cool RPF member who sold it for a price close to US prices.

    Yup. Their shipping is rubbish. They wanted 650 bucks to ship a Vader Legend to my country. Smh.

    An update on my previous post - Disney licensing has been in touch with a number of people on Rebelscum over the last few days regarding the near four year/no contact issue with the Scout Trooper Helmet. Disney licensing has said they are apparently 'actively' progressing this.

    Just wanted everyone to see through EFX's stunt last week. Hopefully they will now be under pressure from Disney to make good on their promises.

    Cheers

    Saw that as well. For everyone else here, here's the contact info for Stacy Barninger, the contact at Disney who oversees the Efx relationship.

    Heh, I like to imagine that the conversation was something along the lines of Jerjerrod/Vader from the beginning of ROTJ...

    Mouse: ”...we are most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.”

    EFX: “We shall double our efforts!”

    So in other words, their update translates to.....



    "Stop sending Disney emails.

    If we loose our license, how else will my cohorts and I going to get access to the original props and make the best replicas for ourselves with other peoples money with the guise of an actual business?!"

    Whether or not they actually deliver at this point is irrelevant in my opinion. Disney should pull the license regardless. I feel so bad for you guys. Thank God I wasn't that active here back when this started or I'd surely be in the same boat.

    If that were true, i don't even think i could feel any anger towards them, but rather pitty, as anyone with such low morals to put plastic and fiberglass before people are going to have a very sad lonely life.

    Till today, I will never know how they keep the company afloat. Paying licensing fees every year with nothing to sell except chromed vac-formed helmets. No wait! They stay afloat paying off licensing fees with our damn pre-order money. I have personally emailed Stacy as well. I don't need her to reply. Just want her to read the email and be aware of our plight. Hope the license is transferred to someone else.

    Actually those are chromed injection molded helmets which is an odd choice for a high end replica company. Not even the manufacturing method is accurate compared to the originals.

    These dates are pretty close. If it was just a delay tactic I would think they would give themselves more than a few weeks.

    Man I feel sorry for you guys waiting so long. And I thought Anovos was bad with pre-order wait times. I had regretted before for having missed out on this helmet. Now, not so much.

    Who wants to bet they'll say the helmets are held in customs or delayed for another month next time people reach out to them?
