Thanks you guys,Jedi_Rainman said:
That's why I asked the same question. The last MR email eluded to the Vader helmets "requiring work" vs. being manufactured from scratch. I would still like Bryan to chime in and confirm this.jedi_dm said:Because in MR updates they have stated about that the helmets require more work than they expected, so that made me think that they were trying to fix the ones that where sent back.
Can you post a copy of that email here? (one that explicitly states that they are manufacturing new helmets and destroying the returns (all of which are inherently defective)- It makes perfect sense to me Ijust haven't seen that email. ThanksNash said:
I dont recall it being an email. If i remember correctly, it was an online discussion from either Amy or Bryan probably after one of MR's Trivia nights.demorathis said:Can you post a copy of that email here?

Please chime in, too Bryan.
I am hopeful that they are indeed making new ones with higher QC standards and an agent who'll oversee the process preferrably someone who really wants one as welljedi_dm said:Here is what I'm coming up with:
1) The Helmets were sent back, why would they take on all the cost to send them back if they were going to destroy them?
2) The LE version is open ended, which means that they do not have to destroy the returned ones because there is no set limit.
This is really bothering me, because this is the most expensive SW item I have ever bought, and I really want a new helm., I'm not buying a returned fixer upper. I know people can say so dont buy it. But I really want this item in my collection and after seeing it and holding it before sending it back I'm hooked. Even though there were alot of flaws, to me this is the best piece that MR has made. I have trust in MR and there quality and I applaud them for stepping up and correcting the issues. But I guess I'll just have to wait and see when I recieve my replacement, if there is any sign that this was repaired, its going back, I'm not settling for a refurb at full price.
Just my thoughts!
Any word on this? Is the CE line dead after the Qui-Gon?BigDumbWookiee said:Sorry if this has been asked:
How's the CE line doing, and is it going to continue? Are we going to see CE releases of formerly released LEs or EEs?
Just heard from a source that the Falcon won't have any type of decals on it (for those waiting for an answer to this). That's very good newsyodaman said:Bryan - will the upcoming SS Falcon have any type of stickers on it?
