• eFX Scout Trooper Helmet Prop Replicas

      EFX is pleased to announce the latest helmet in the Legend Edition line.
      SCOUT TROOPER!

      Our helmet was created by utilizing the original ROTJ production molds which as far as I know is the first time that original production molds from the original trilogy have been used to create a licensed collectible.
      How awesome is that?!

      The original screen-used helmets were made in vac formed plastic halves which were then glued together.
      The seam lines were filled with putty and sanded (relatively) smooth and then the entire helmet was painted white.
      The seam lines on the original helmets were very fragile and every known original has cracks in the paint in these areas.
      Because of vulnerability of the seam lines as well as the production and CS nightmare it would surely cause, the decision was made to create our replicas in fiberglass.
      Even though the materials will be different, every other aspect of the helmet will be as screen accurate as possible including the overall forms, paint, detailing, accessories, and function.

      There will be two different editions, a weathered screen-accurate version and a clean non-weathered version.
      We are not quite sure at this point if the weathered version will become the Legend with the clean version becoming the Limited as it happened with the ANH Vader.
      For the time being, we're just going to label them 'weathered screen-accurate' and 'clean'.
      Both versions will be identical with the exception of the weathering effect.

      I can't get behind that Nautica figure, she's way better than a dodgy Blurr reuse.

      Good point, that mold is pretty dated now. The Nerf darts kept me from buying the previous ships though, they use up too much mold budget for a gimmick

      Will Hasbro make a 6" carded vintage line beyond the 40th?

      Nah. They ate it hard on that Greedo figure, re-releasing it would be a bad call. They need to be selective about what they release on these cards from

      With temps today supposed to hit the 60's for the first time since last fall Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles seems like an obvious choice.

      You're right that the deco leaves a lot to be desired. The stickers are also not good.

      Amazing what a 4-day weekend does for reading: my 3rd book included the above, plus these two.

      I think Hasbro will put in Nerf stuff to all remolded and new vehicles from this point on to the future. They're crossing over their brands to increase
