The "Chinese manufacturing" excuse was just that, an EXCUSE! The Limited Scout Helmet had the very same visor chasm/gap on it when released as when it was first shown years before. EFX claimed they were working for years on 'perfecting' the helmet, when in fact it was proven they were just lying/stalling.The only ray of hope is that they state they are handmade in USA - therefore no lame "Chinese manufacturing" excuses.
Yes, it was a straight up lie. Yes claimed they had issues with the helmet and tried to iron out the issues and thus the delays. And yet, after waiting even longer, it still the same thing with all the issues.The "Chinese manufacturing" excuse was just that, an EXCUSE!

Don't forget you'll actually get what you paid for!for such a model, anyone considering to order must remember that you will have a
1- Much more accurate
2- Much cheaper replica with
3- Much better paint job
if you simply commissioned a pro builder (such as Randy Cooper, Tim Ketzer, etc...) in the community...
just wanted to remind you people
OMGosh gac, that is truly incredible!! Do you have a pic for how you have this displayed in your setup? Huge congrats!
i can nearly guarantee these will be hastily assembled in steve neisen's basement. most of the major surfaces don't even mate up properly on the replica. just another money grab from these shifty charlatans. there were many artists that got commissioned by EFX to build star wars replicas for the disney parks in 2015. several of the artists were told they couldn't be paid any money after handing over months of their work because "disney never paid us." meanwhile, mr. neisen was taking a cruise in the bahamas after "inking the deal" with disney.
EFX should not even be around in 2018, let alone still promising to produce overpriced vaporware.
a few rich suckers will get a slapped together model in 2019 and the rest in line will wait years after pre-order and receive nothing but excuses and then silence in return.
