IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE VENDOR TO CLEANLY TRIM THEM WITHOUT RESULTING IN A POSSIBLE SHARP EDGE. WE HAVE THEREFORE DECIDED TO MAKE AN INJECTION MOLD FOR THE VISOR. THE NEW MOLD WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY 4-6 WEEKS. UNFORTUNATELY, THE FACTORIES ARE CLOSED FOR THE CHINESE NEW YEARS HOLIDAY. WE WILL UPDATE THE SCHEDULE UPON THEIR RETURN.

    The first production samples we reviewed were OK. But as you know, making 100's versus 1 or 2 is quite different!

    Hey D!

    It is because it can be sharp all around the perimeter. The little nose pad on the Mark's helmet was just a "quick fix" for filming. Also, remember, with the ANH version, there is no pad!

    It would be cool to see a nose pad on it. Just for accuracy's sake. Unless it was just put there, and not actually attached to the visor...

    Are the ANH helmets being made at the same time or is that somewhere down the road?

    I'd rather have a safe, finished product than a defect that would need replaced.
