Points of Interest:
eFX's second helmet has arrived. With packing and included parts similar to their Stormtrooper helmet, I'll pass over mentioning them again.

This helmet is HEAVY. Weighing in at 4.8 lbs, it's easily the heaviest trooper helmet I've ever seen. Even the MR clone trooper helmet doesn't even come close at 3.4 lbs. It makes the helmet very substantial to feel and hold which is nice for display, but I doubt you'd want to troop in it.

Overall, the finish is spectacular except that but this helmet did arrive with a couple of problems you can see in the detail photos. One, the tip of the "mohawk" where it's lit is really poorly finished. There are all kinds of problems. Until I see other helmets, I can't tell if it's just mine, though I anticipate all will have this issue. The other problem is likely related to just this helmet. On its right side there is a pretty bad chip in the paint at the end of the brow that has just been painted over and is something that would cause a return of the helmet to eFX. It's unfortunate, but if nothing else, this goes to prove eFX is not opening these helmet before they send them for review.

The "mohawk" light is a nice touch, and it's a good thing eFX put it on a long wire because I'll be letting the battery box hang down inside the helmet so I can easily turn it on and off with its switch. If you were to wear the helmet, the battery pack goes in a handy pocket right up inside the "mohawk". I like that it uses AAA batteries as they will likely last a very long time powering the LED.

On-sale date hasn't been set, but it's probably in October, or early November.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
