Should have done it man, these scum bags get away with this because people for the most part don’t want to start static. I get it, also you don’t want to get kicked out of the con, but this guy deserves our rage, disgust, and enmity. He’s a thief, plain and simple, and a liar. If he’s so great like some moderators like to say why hasn’t he refunded everyone’s money and relied on how great he is to sell all the helmets when they are done? The only good thing to come from efx going down the tubes is geno is finally gone from almost all the boards. LolWhen I was at Star Wars Celebration, Bryan was in the eFX display area. I was really tempted to confront him but decided that probably wasn't going to be very productive. I'll tell you though, I spent more than a few minutes thinking it over at the convention. It's too bad, because they had some beautiful helmets and models there, but you just can't rely on them.
Lol I’ll just leave this hereI think $699 for this helmet is a fantastic price.
Especially when you consider that it is the only helmet in fandom that has ever been offered that was made directly from using the original production molds that made the original helmets for ROTJ.
In addition to that, this helmet is incredibly complex and difficult to produce and manufacture. One of the reasons I believe it was never produced back in the day when Don Post had the deluxe line of helmets. I don't think it ever made it past the prototype stage.
And if you recall, back in 1995, the Don Post Deluxe Vader helmet retailed at $1200 and it had very poor pedigree and questionable execution. And a much simpler helmet to produce.
So here we are almost 20 years later doing it for much cheaper then they were able to then. And soooooo much better. B)
Yea I know it’s funny how very few people ever called this expert out on his stuff, some did and it was always funny to watch him rage then quit. The dp helmet wasn’t bad and with a few mods even the cheap plastic one could look real nice. Better than the efx one anyway.Just as FYI--Don Post did make a deluxe scout trooper helmet. I have one, though I think they were extremely limited...I believe I have #2 on the brass plaque.
Has there been the same issues with these guys of not getting refunds? Perhaps time to sue them as well. I never bought anything from them, after the debacle that was MR at the end I knew what was coming. Anovos caught me off guard though, stuff was coming out and I did buy some of their stuff, but I have never ever preordered anything. No need I was always able to get what I wanted when it was released, preorder is such a dangerous thing in this hobby. Heck I was burned on that with non-licensed guys, so I learned way way back props and costumes = no pre-order ever.same thing is for their Iron Man Mark VII Helmet Direct Exclusive. Also 500 pieces and 900 USD each. Makes 1 Million for 2 direct exclusive helmets.
At the moment I do not believe we will ever see those 2 in hand. Maybe in another 5 years.
The SW brand is fine and there is more cool SW stuff to buy right now and upcoming then ever before. Just eFX and Anovos are failures right now and really failed collectors.Like the SW brand itself, the SW prop world is dying.
Thanks Disney - worst SW SDCC I can ever remember.
We must be living on different planets because there's definitely not "more cool SW stuff to buy right now and upcoming than ever before."The SW brand is fine and there is more cool SW stuff to buy right now and upcoming then ever before.

Yea it’s a weird way of thinking. I’m way to negative and I know that’s a issue but I’ve never understood that way of thinking it seems delusional, the Star Wars collecting hobby is ina weird place sure there’s tons of product but very little good product and when there is good stuff it’s distributed so terribly I had to just quit. The props are just a joke anovos and efx and the new master replicas that seems to Peter out before it ever started (shock). Seems like so many no-brainer products never get made but hundreds of crap products. I just don’t understand it anymoreWe must be living on different planets because there's definitely not "more cool SW stuff to buy right now and upcoming than ever before."
After 42 years of collecting I've never seen it this bad before.
Totally get the desire but at this point why bother, right. I mean he would just lie, that’s what he’s best at, then he’d find something in the “archives” to sell to some idiot for ten times its retail price and then carry on going to conventions. I am shocked at the size of his, you know what’s, that he even shows his face at all these conventions. Some people simply have no internal sense of decency, they can just go on telling lies and stealing money and never feel bad at all. Return all the money to people who want it back and then no problem, but we all know there is no money left.Those who went to SDCC, did anyone approach Bryan when they plan to ship the Biker Scout Legend, Star Lord helmet and Iron Man Mark 7 helmets?
I get what your saying for me I already have the only toys I’m interested in and that’s the vintage stuff, the real vintage mind you not the new stuff called vintage, current toys don’t interest me at all, if your into the lower end stuff you listed off then yea it’s a great time to buy stuff with the logo slapped on, but for me it’s just a desert out there.I guess if people are only interested in high end licensed helmets or limited edition numbered products then yeah it is not great for ya but there is so much GE merch, Hasbro stuff, high end statue, Black series figures, art items, Lego etc etc. You could definitely deck out a whole room easily.
