eFX Darth Vader Helmet Update 3-20-12
First, thank you very much for your patience as we worked with our vendor to develop the most accurate replica of the iconic Darth Vader helmet as seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
I would like to give you a brief update on the status of this project. Lucasfilm has given us the final approval and thus, we are now in production. In fact, we had on display actual production pieces of both the Legend and Limited Editions at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA this past weekend.
We anticipate shipping the first quantity from Asia in about 30 days. We do not have a definite number of helmets that we will ship yet since each helmet will be thoroughly inspected and some helmets will be rejected because of our strict Quality Control Specifications.
We will be producing the Legend Edition first, followed by the Limited Edition.
We will be allocating the helmets in the order that the pre-orders were received. For those of you who ordered a Legend, you may remember that we overloaded the credit card server and caused a huge backlog in the credit card authorization process. So, for the those who ordered a Legend, we will allocate in the order that the authorizations came back from the credit card gateway, which may not necessarily be the same order that the orders were submitted for authorization. We will contact you when the helmet allocated to you is en route from Asia via e-mail, so please ensure that our e-mails do not end up in your spam file.
Thanks once again for your patience! We have set up an e-mail address specifically for questions and assistance for the Darth Vader helmet: email@example.com
