These are really cool items. I'm not sure if its $800 or $1000 cool though. I've been wanting to get a highly detailed DV helmet, but I don't know if I want to spend that kind of bucks for one. I'd kinda hoped that they would do what they did with the Stormtrooper helmet and make a reasonably detailed one for around $200.
I'm gonna purchase the Limited version. I've seen both in person and they are f'n fantastic! As a long time prop collector, the ANH Vader has always been my favorite representation.

I'm thinking I may end up buying the Limited version as well. $800 is pretty steep, but its a really cool item, the cost will end up being spread out over the year, and the opportunity may never come up again to own a piece like this. The only thing that might change my mind is if the shipping is some ungodly amount. Hopefully thats not the case.
I live in Nebraska, which is pretty much smack dab in the center of the USA. I don't think shipping will be a problem, but you never know with the weight of the product.
I looks like the Legend edition sold out pretty quick. Someone over on RS said it only took 10 minutes. Not surprising with there only being 250 pieces.
I would have went for that but to the $670 shipping quote from FedEx I would have had to add VAT 24% plus customs, which would raise the total taxes to almost $1000. The same price on taxes as the helmet itself, and this just because of FedEx. Hopefully eFX will learn something from this, but kind of doubt it. There were only 4 non-US customers that bought the Legend that I'm aware of. That means something...
