    Noticed these the other day and was surprised not to hear of them sooner. I guess being an exclusive they were hush hush.
    Since Comic-Con, I've searched the Radio Shack site periodically for the metal laser pointer sabers they had on display.
    These are available now as well...

    Noticed the C-3PO helm also has sound. No mention of light up eyes like Riddell though, just sound.

    I'm collecting the Mini Helmets as well. Cant wait for the Clone Troopers at the end of the year.

    I'm a little miffed though because I JUST bought the Riddell Threepio and Vader thinking that MR wasnt doing them.

    The Rebelscum member Wclehmann wrote a short review of these new helmets - it seems they are somehow lower quality than Riddells:

    1. They do not remove from the stands. They are stationary.
    2. Vader is not the reveal. It is a single piece that, again, does not remove from the stand.
    3. C-3PO's eyes do light up and says the phrases when motion activated.
    4. The weight seems to be much lighter than the Riddells. Don't know if it is the materials (seem to be made of plastic for sure).
    5. All of the electronics are in the base, and the speaker is in the top of the base in the rear.
    6. The phrases are the usual ones: "I find your lack of faith disturbing" + others for Vader. And C-3PO gives his probability blurb + others. Good, iconic phrases were chosen. But the sounds seem to be a bit echo-y. A bit hollow. Especially the C-3PO.

    Well that sucks. I might get them so the stands will match the other MR stands. Not decided yet.

    I'm surprised to hear the helmets are cheaper, stripped-down versions AND not removable. I wonder what the deal is with this. Of course, thinking about it, it's not like that Vader was cheap original, it was $90 from Riddell, and 3PO was $60 I think. Still, I wonder what the thinking was on these.

    Its dissapointing that the MR Vader and 3PO helmets are not removable. Wedge is and I believe Luke, Boba and Stormie are.
