    Looks good. I was actually disappointed with the Marmit version.....the kit like aspect of it is a pain.

    Just once I would like to see the ANH version Tie Pilot.....everyone does the later version like this, but it looks good...wonder if Sideshow will get to this one?

    I know the differences between ANH/ESB/ROTJ/ROTS Vaders, between the ANH/ROTJ stormtroopers and between ESB and ROTJ Boba Fett, but what are the differences between ANH TIE Pilot and the others?

    Main thing: hoses. In ANH, they had a hose running from the mask to the side and in the later ones, it is like the Medicom. Subtle, but not done to my knowledge

    Also the ANH Pilots had two grey stripes running down the front of their facemasks and some grey lettering on the front of their helmet ridge.

    In fact, I think a couple of TIE Pilots in ROTJ had the same stripes on the front of their helmets. Which means they were either using recycled helmets or recycled footage from the original film.

    Cool, i was not aware of that myself...grey stripes...ok time to whip out ANH and look again! But clearly, its there in the pic! Awesome. dude, another reason to want the ANh version

    Yeah I found another pic that shows off the decal you meantion at the top:


    I don't see the grey stripe in this pic, but do see the other decal - did some have the stripe and some did not, or is it just the angle and lighting?

    Very interesting, thanks again

    The price is outrageous. I'll wait until it drops and then I'll get it.

    Yeah, there seems to be different markings on different helmets. If you look closely though, you can see that the entire front portion of the helmet ridge on that pilot is painted silver-ish. You can tell by the "black box" that the lettering in encased in.
