FINALLY!
After several weeks and email conversations back and forth with Anovos my replacement helmet has finally arrived.
The visor is free from scratches and the helmet is much more movie-like colorwise than the faulty one.
Only downside: I had to pay ANOTHER $187 in import-taxes (as I also did with the first faulty helmet)
Total cost: $699+$187+$187=$1073
INSANE.

I do have to credit Anovos for being nothing but helpful in this case.
Reason that they didn't answer in the beginning was because the salesperson was at home sick-leave.

It seems though that they've somewhat revised the helmet.
The earpieces sits more straight and tight compared to the first helmet.
Also the black stripe on the earpieces looks painted this time, compared to the old one which just had a black taped stripe.

I'm happy your happy but if they were not going to pay for the export fees because of their problem the least they could have done was given you a merchandise credit. GC

I keep seeing mixed reviews on the Anovos Mandalorian Helmet. The glossy clear coat definitely doesn't look film accurate. I've been grilling out on my 12 year old stainless steel Weber grill a lot lately and noticed that the finish on that is spot on IMO with the color & finish instead.

I was quite tempted by the Anovos Mandalorian helmet, but having been stung myself by them already (Gen Merrick), There is no way I would risk losing more money to those sharks again!

From the reviews here it sounds like there is a real quality issue as well. Avoid.

Has anyone heard anything on General Merrick Helmet? I wonder if Anovos would even still have the info of all the people who ordered these 3 years ago?!

I had the Merrick helmet on pre-order through Entertainment Earth and recently I checked all of my pre-orders and it is gone. I will assume that Entertainment Earth has also give up on Anovos.

Just posting a question in case it hasn't been asked yet. Has anyone ordered anything that is On Stock from Anovos during this Quarantine period and actually got it delivered?

I've said it before but I waited three years for the TFA Han Solo jacket and somehow still received it after requesting a refund multiple times.

I would be comfortable purchasing some helmets or other items through another retailer like BBTS or EE if they were in stock, but I won't take a chance ordering directly from Anovos.

My Solo jacket was ordered first week of March. It's supposed to be here next week. Side note, if you need a XL Solo jacket, please seem my thread in the classified section.

Is the Mandalorian helmet an open ended edition or an LE? does it come with a numbered plaque?

I caved in on the Mandalorian helmet, which arrived today. However, I bought it from a seller who had it IN HAND (and he had photos to prove It)

Extremely impressed with It. Will be doing a review for my site.

Jez good job that is the ONLY way to get something that ANOVOS made that you want. You may pay more but you get it!!! GC

Absolutely 100%. No way would I preorder anything anymore from either Anovos or EFX (unless it was a nominal upfront fee).

Both companies have a shocking disregard for their customers.

So I finally got the AT-AT Pilot helmet that I had preordered an age ago and was gutted to see that it was damaged in the box when it arrived. No damage to the box. Way to go QC Dept. I contacted them immediately to let them know....that was three weeks ago. The only thing I received from customer service was a notice telling me my two enquirise had been merged into one. No answer, no acknowledgement of the issue.

I have tried contacting them via phone and gotten nowhere either. I would just like to have the problem sorted. They were quick enough to take my damn money!

I know we’re all going through a difficult time with the pandemic. But an email reply is not impossible.817D4D0A-644C-42EA-A9B7-1F904BB143F1.jpegBB15913C-AD35-4D14-9E98-4206BAE26BBA.jpeg4E39D72F-3889-473E-8A98-5885983D378D.jpeg

looks like the greebly broke off and beat the crap out of it. If that is just paint transfer vs scratches some wax and a mirofiber towel should be able to get those off if ANOVOS doesn't exchange it.

I pre-ordered an Anovos Snowtrooper helmet in 2017 from Toy Wars that I'm still waiting on. It still shows up in my Toy Wars account but they have gone dark in my queries regarding an update. They too may have given up on Anovos.

Thanks for the reply. No it’s actually the grey paint that has scraped off, I looked at it to confirm. Anovos better replace it or I’ll go after the funds with my bank. I’m not putting up with being shafted, even in a pandemic!

Damn !!! right down to the base primer that sucks!!!! Take a lot of pics, copy yourself on all the emails sent To ANOVOS for bank documentation. Call your bank now to verify you are still within your time limits and start the dispute now. GC
