    Question about Riddell SW helmets

    Okay, today I was at a collectors store. While I was browsing through the selections, I came across the Riddell helmets of Boba Fett, and a Stormtrooper. I asked the clerk how much the helmets were going for. She told me that the Stormtrooper was $35 and the Boba Fett was $45. I had paid over $100 on eBay for the Stormtrooper. I told the clerk this, and she said that the ones they had their were a second release, that were released about 2 years ago. She asked if I knew which version of the Stormtrooper helmet I had. My question is, how do I tell which version I have? I mean it's not like I can send the Riddell Stormtrooper helmet I have for a full refund, then buy the one at the store, but I would like to know if I have one from the original release. I did pick up the Boba Fett, but I put it on Lay Away. I put $11 down on it, and still have a balance, and I do intend on picking it up later next month. After all, if I change my mind, they have a no refund policy.

    Thanks in advance.

    I didnt think there were any re-releases of the mini helmets. Even if there were I dont know if there would be any way to tell them apart.

    Like Jayspawn, I don't think that they were re-released. I know that I got most of mine about 3 years ago from KBkids.com for around $30 - 40 each, then the Stormie I paid about $90 for in a collectors shop.

    They might have been reissues, but nothing was changed on them. Thats probably what it was.

    After asking this question, I went over and looked at the bottom of my Stormtrooper helmets base. It gives a date of 1997, but so does the C-3PO, and the Vader. I would like to pick up the remaining helmet(s), but I'm not sure how many more there are. I know there is a Rebel pilots helmet, any others I am missing?

    I am going to get the Bobafett, and I have the Stormie, 3PO, and Vader.

    The line consisted of Boba, Stormtrooper, X-Wing Pilot, C-3PO and Vader. On eBay from time to time , I see CUSTOM helmets done of Jango and the Other Rogue Squadron Pilots. Not bad a job and price, for around $50-$100.

    Got it and replied.
    I am a little disappointed in the Armory Collection from Gentle Giants. I was actually hoping for a detailed helmet that would Rival the Riddell Helmets. But being that they are only 1/6 scale, meh.

    Yes, even though they are going for 2 for $30 I believe. I am impressed with the Riddell helmets, I remember seeing them years ago at a comic collector shop in the Mall of America. I paced back and fourth wondering if I should pick up one or two of them, but in the end walked away with none. It was a matter of cash flow, and I was on vacation then.

    Dont get me wrong tho, the detail in the pics is outstanding and I will most likely pick them up, I like BIGGER scale collectibles.
