I know what you mean. I managed to get a Stormtrooper, Shock Trooper, Vader, and Poe's helmet all at a decent discount. Basically, half price with the exception of the Stormtrooper helmet. The thing is they've been getting better and better each time. This Luke helmet seems to have even better interior features and much better electronic features. I think I may pull the trigger at full price. It seems worth it to me, and all I ever really wanted since they started doing BS helmets was a Luke pilot helmet. I'm really glad they did this as opposed to doing a Boba Fett helmet, for example.Love the black series helmet. Got Poe's and the storm trooper. But at $100-$109 I will pass on it until I see it in clearance. The 2 I have were priced originally at $80. That seemed more reasonable to me.
I know what you mean. This is a must have for me. I could take or leave all the other BS helmets they've made so far.Yup! I've got all of the others so far, minus the Stormtrooper repaints. There's no way I am not getting this one.
It's hard to say. Non of the prior helmets have sold out, with the exception of the Kylo Ren helmet. Though the prices have gone up and down on them. It's hard to use past examples since they are different helmets. In my opinion this Luke helmet is the one most everyone will want. My gut is telling me it will be around and not sell out, and it may go down in price some. But, the fan in me is simply going to buy this helmet day 1 with no regrets.Picked up the Kylo Ren helmet in TK Maxx cheap and was impressed with the quality (and fit) so I grabbed the Poe Dameron helmet off Amazon when it came out at RRP £70.
The Storm Trooper black series lids are currently retailing at £130 (RRP * 2) but the Darth Vader black series helmet is selling for £50 (RRP / 2)! So do you gamble that this helmet will fail to sell at retail and wait for sale?
I know that I will be ordering this first day, the Poe Dameron helmet is cool and all but this Red 5 helmet is the royal crown of Star Wars fandom . . .
ordered. thanks for the heads-up. cheers!
In my country (Malaysia), when there is a release of a SW movie, Force Fridays are always a fun filled events with many fans and collectors look forward to and line up outside toy stores in anticipation to purchase the new SW toys. This year, for the very first time, there was hardly any festivities. Fandom has indeed took a nosedive.Target isn’t doing the midnight madness thing. Fandom has taken a nosedive.
Same, though it helps that I haven't actually seen one in stores yet. Definitely want one, but I'm Not actively seeking it out at this point, but I know if I saw one I wouldn't be able to resist.Really trying to show restraint and wait a little on this. Already spent my limit this month on toys.
To be honest i saw it in thinkgeek and it looks cheap. The paint instead of decals kills it for me. If you look at screenshots of lukes helmet they are clearly raised. I am starting to have doubts about the Fett Helmet now after seing the paint on thos and the new trooper helmet. its a shame because I really wanted it.
It's not the same quality and care as the previous helmets, is what I am saying. I was all about them until this one. a hundred dollars may not seem like a lot to those of us who drop a grand in a heartbeat, but honestly this feels so phoned in for that kind of money.I am not sure what you really expect for a $100 bucks. Your next choice is the EFX one if you want to drop $700 + if you can find it that cheap on eBay.
That's a bummer. I may have to stop by ThinkGeek and see if they have one on display. I need to see this for myself. I was pretty satisfied with prior helmets. Then again, I never paid $100 for one. I always managed to find them marked down. I think the most I paid for one was around $60 for the regular Stormtrooper.It's not the same quality and care as the previous helmets, is what I am saying.
