Thanks, Trav. Six months out of the year, every year, the East coast gets threaten by hurricanes, tornadoes that sometimes accompany them, and tropical storms. While it is something we learn to live with and be prepared for, it is great knowing there are folks like you sending out good vibes.Ben ,we'll be praying for you and your family. You too Julian. My Brother lives in Florida as well and every year I have to have this conversation with him so it is indeed scary.
Thanks Julian. Yeah, really happy with how this helmet turned out and would certainly buy from RS again. Unfortunately I'm still waiting on the efx biker scout legend helmet which I paid for in July of 2014! At this point, I wish I had waited and gone with the RS biker helmet, as that one looks amazing. I've got my fingers crossed that the efx legend comes out better than the efx LE which had issues.That's a great looking helmet, Ben. Congrats on your latest purchase. Who needS unreliable eFX when RS Masters can deliver such nice and accurate replica. Their Sandtroopers and Scout Trooper buckets are also fantastic. Another great addition to your collection.
Thanks! Actually that Code 3 Slave 1 once did give me quite a bit of grief. I slowly lifted the ship up once to clean the shelf it was on and that black base stuck to the ship. I stupidly continued to move it without holding the base and at the worst possible moment the base fell off the ship and crashed down on the Boba animated maquette that I had at the time, snapping his rifle off. I was so pissed off! So yeah, exercise caution!That looks great, Ben. I wanted to display my Code 3 Slave 1 in the little Boba Fett area I have, but decided on the Mythosaur skull instead, being a bit concern about it falling down, so it is in a Detolf with my other Code 3 vehicles. I have to say I do like how you are displaying yours alongside the Fett variants. I'll have to wait until Xmas Day to actually display the Holiday mini bust on my shelf, so looking at your picture will entertain my eyes until then. As usual, great set-up. Congrats!
Thanks a bunch!I am SOO envious of your Boba collection, Ben. Just pure gold!
Oh, man! That must have been painful. Sorry to hear that. I hate it when I've done something similar, causing any type of damage to a collectible. Although it was a clean break which I easily repaired, I was one day cleaning one of my shelves and was moving the Jabba the Hutt bookends with the exclusive Boushh Leia on it. Thinking to myself the small statue would stay in place because of the magnetized feet/base, I walked with it a few steps and ... bang! to the floor Leia went, breaking off the arm holding the staff. I was so pissed off; I'd just received it two days prior. Agree exercising caution when handling these things is essential.Thanks! Actually that Code 3 Slave 1 once did give me quite a bit of grief.

Thanks Julian. After giving the rangefinder a gentle tug mine isn't coming out either and I'd probably be wise to leave it alone. Nevermind!Ben,be careful. I agree it is a little long, but it is not removable as far as I can tell. I bought mine sealed, directly from a dealer at Celebration in Orlando (the one before the last one there), and it came with the rangefinder attached to the helmet. At least mine can't be pulled out. I believe only the exclusive Deluxe Fett mini bust in the tin box has a removable rangefinger, besides the Holiday version just released.
Thanks! The likeness, paint job, and sculpt are all top notch. I just hope they eventually get around to making a version with arms.I collected the entire classic mini bust line, then when GG quit making them I sold off all but the OT Empire & Bounty Hunter ones. But to this day I think they are some of the nicest and most detailed GG busts ever made. Glad you like the Poe, it looks great in your collection now .
Thank you, rnbuda.That Force Awakens shelf looks great!
Thanks! Yeah, I really don't know why GG squandered the rights to make the scaled helmets. Seems like these could be a really popular line and there are so many helmets yet to be made.Ben, that helmet looks great! As you know I only collect OT nowadays, but I do collect all .45 mini helmets from all the films. I think GG is missing on sales by having the reins of the .45 helmet line and doing nothing with it. If they ever reproduce the FO special Forces TIE helmet you've shown above for the .45 line, it'd be an instant buy for me. Great addition to your collection, Ben.
