The link is on the efx site just underneath the description line. Yes, it charged my credit card for the full amount plus a $10 ship fee, but no tax.
Thanks. Do they ALSO make you pay full purchase price on the pre-order or do they charge when it ships?

I contacted BAIT out of curiosity. I've ordered an ANOVOS helmet from them before.

Their response: "This item is in stock and is a PRE-ORDER."

Alright then.

I'm going to interpret that to mean it's available for pre-order, but that did not instill confidence.

So, because it's selling through this BAITME mob, does that mean EFX have to adhere to the ETA?

Or is this strategic; if there's any backlash/refunds because they're (5 years) late, BAITME are the poor suckers that have to deal with customers directly, and therefore EFX never have to worry about customer complaints again? I wonder if BAITME know what they've gotten themselves into?

There was a LE offered years ago in fiberglass, but I assume this plastic version will be the only offering...and I hope it actually ships after reading all these horror stories about a 5 year wait on the biker scout helmet.
Hi...Do u think there will be a LE ?

eFX has never offered a Fett in fiberglass. There have always been rumors for a Legend piece, but who knows why eFx would actually want to make product and sell something under the Star Wars license!!

The Fett fiberglass LE was a Master Replicas release.

Only downside of the MR helmet is pinch and the incorrect PP3 paint job.

As we close in on the end of June, I can't help but think of what someone so eloquently posted: "Bait me" is the appropriate name for the website...

It says "in stocks", so it should ship any day now.
That, unfortunately, doesn't mean anything. It's always said "in stocks". I even emailed them about it, and they said it's "in stock and available to pre-order" which I took to just mean it's available to pre-order.

I’m very interested in this helmet. I absolutely love my PCR Vader and Stormtrooper (they are perfect for my display purposes and price point) and this would make a perfect companion. But there’s no way I’m preordering. I want to see in-hand pictures of the paint job. I was interested in the “more accurate” paint they offered in the Vader PCR, but then I saw in-hand photos that showed it was nothing like the promo pics and looked pretty awful. I chose to get the standard version with the knowledge I could do a better “film accurate” paintjob myself if I ever decided I wanted to.

So with this Fett helmet being the most complex factory paintjob yet, I’m very curious to see how it comes out. Fingers crossed they nail it!

EFX actually updated their website with production photos. This might actually see the light of day before the end of the year.

They also showed photos of Starlord that showed it was “almost” done, that’s been on preorder for how many years? Lol in all seriousness though I really do hope these criminals can get this done not like the biker scout legend. A cheaper fett helmet would be great, but I’m not ordering it from some skater website, not happening.

is it the camera or do some of those look wonky? If this is the current state of them then how is this ever going to be done this year. And they are charging how much for a injection molded helmet? 400? Really? While anovos sucks I bought a fiberglass Vader from them for 550. Now that was two years ago but still. However with all my negativity I would love a fett that was available however since it’s efx it’s hard to get excited about this, and only available through some skater website that has nothing to do with Star Wars props is sort of weird to say the least.

Well, you do get metal ears with these and those go for around the same cost of this helmet alone. So, its kind of like you’re getting a free plastic copy of the screen used helmet with these. From a certain point of view:grin:

Just curious at this point, but has anyone tried to cancel their preorder with Bait? I just verified on my cc statement from May and they did already charge the full amount, which I thought was a bit strange on a preorder.

No doubt the black series helmet will be released before this...

...but I'd be very happy to be proved wrong.

No kidding I just can not take these guys seriously anymore. I feel like they would be better off saying it will come out in 2050 and then when it’s released five years from now we would all be excited because they came in under their delivery date
