These are up for sale now on the EFX site.
Just out of interest is there any news on the special edition or has anyone seen one at a con?
I think they've been out for a while now. The first time they were opened for public sale was at SDCC last July 2016. I got mine from there. It's also available at the EFX website here:
The Limited has the Blemished Tusk and the crooked grill too. Minus the painted C-scar thoughI've been curious to see the PCR vader. I have the Legend edition that has the imperfections of the original such as the crooked grill, c-scar, and blemished right tusk. I don't believe the Limited or this new PCR has either of those "features"?
It is nice, especially considering how cheap it is, I have both this plastic helmet and the similar older fiberglass Limited version (got this plastic one free due to EFX being slow to send the Scout helmets) and they're not all that different side by side. Much lighter weight, a keen eye looking close could see where the plastic pieces meet, but they look very similar as a whole. I'd wager you could swap out someone's fiberglass lid for the plastic one and they wouldn't notice until they looked closely.
As far as an equal to the MR helmet, I believe the one you'd be referring to is the ROTS one, which was fiberglass. The old EFX Limited or Legend (which were also fiberglass) would probably be the closest thing you could get to that, I think. Comes with a stand and plaque where this plastic one does not.
