    Secondly, heres my Kropserkel BSG Cylon helmet. This is one prop I've always dreamed about owning ever since I was a kid. The sweeping LED light is, of course, the coolest feature on this prop. It came battery powered, but I learned very quickly that is likes to eat batteries, so I rigged up something to be able to plug it into an outlet. Its not cast off an original, but as far as I can tell, it looks pretty close to me. I read of a few complaints about inaccuracies when compared with an original, but was never able to find out what those exactly were. I got the voice for it as well, which is a unit seperate from the helmet. The chroming is done very well, with the exception of a few places where there must have been some dust stuck to the surface that got chromed over. Not noticeable unless your looking for it. Because of the LED scanner, the prop is kinda front heavy, so I have to be careful about how I place it on the stand.

    Very nice Sandtrooper helmet - looks like a TE2, and really neat Cylon bucket as well.

    Thanks Serg. The Sandtrooper helmet was the second helmet prop I ever bought without a whole lot of knowledge about it. I was wondering what gives it away as a TE2? I really have no idea as to what to look for.

    Here's a few pics of my SDS TIE Pilot helmet and chestbox. This and the efx Vader were a real chore to get halfways decent pictures of. I ended up placing them near a window for sunlight and a lamp from the other side to get it done right. Its an awesome piece and pics will never do it justice IMO. At this point, its supposed to be the most accurate TIE Helmet out there. The only inaccuracies on the helmet that I know of is that the fork on the mowhawk is not correct when compared with the original. Why its that way, nobody knows for sure. The chestbox and armor are a nice addition and really completes the look.

    I thought I'd throw in a pic of my 5yr old wearing the bucket to show the enormity of it.

    Heres a few pics of my efx Vader Limited. Not much else to say other than its a really awesome piece. With all of the nightmare stories of chips, scratches, and what not, I was sure relieved that mine showed up with no issues. Once I had the light problems kinda figured out, there really isn't a bad angle when taking pictures of it. It just looks great all over.

    Indeed the SDS TIE Fighter Pilot helmet has accuracy problem with the front of the mohawk, the fork thing. And it has 2 extra metal greeblies on the ears, I prefer it with them on anyway.

    This is my EFX ANH Luke Skywalker X-Wing helmet that I purchased from Redfordfilms last year. For being a scanned prop, they really got the overall shape of it correct, as far as I can tell. Its made out of fiberglass, so its pretty heavy. I think the originals were ABS, so its not the original materials, but I think thats alright. When you pick it up, it actually feels like a piece of military equipment. They seemed to do a good job on the paint and decals. I know that some showed up with decals that were creased, crooked, or improperly placed. Thankfully I didn't have to deal with that. I thnk they could have done a little better on the weathering, but its not bad. It does have this cable coming out the back which I have no idea what the heck its for. It comes with ear pads that velcro to the fabric lining on the inside, so you can adjust it to however you like it. Its a really nice prop to own plus I think I got 20% off when I purchased it.
    Great shots all around, great stuff!

    The cable coming out the back is for the microphone headset, in the film you can see that headset worn by the Rebel technicians on Yavin during the battle, as well as the headsets Luke & Han wear during the TIE Fighter battle on the Falcon, so that headset was chopped up and shoved into the helmet, that's the idea here (the "spoon" microphone reflector comes and goes in different uses of that mic in the films), but I don't know if the original prop actually had the mic and cable attached to the helmet the way it is here.

    As for the weathering, while it's certainly not screen-accurate to any specific scene, it gets rave reviews from all my guests when they see it.

    Thanks JT. I'll have to keep my eye on the headsets the next time I watch ANH. I think very highly of the job that efx did on this. I'm really thinking that if they ever get around to releasing Wedge's Xwing helmet, I'd be in for one of those.

    I'm more into collecting imperials, but I think this is a must to have in any SW prop collection. Its iconic enough that you could show it to the average joe in the street and they would immediately know what it is. Its just such a well built piece.

    I prefer it with the extra greeblies as well. The more bling the better.

    The greeblie on the lower part of the ear is the extra one:
