    Just ordered my first one, hope it won't be the last one.
    Bought Vader's helmet.
    Read some good reviews about it and by videos and photos it really looks great.
    Paid 130 euros at amazon.de, no idea if it was a good deal or not.
    Excited to see how my daughter will react with the sound of this mask!:D

    Do you guys have any of theses Black Series helmets. How good are they?

    I've got the Stormtrooper helmet (stormy 3) the sound quality isn't so great, but a great buy nonetheless... I had loads of fun wearing it. :D Hello Greedo, I'm looking at you bro! I saw a white series Ralph Mcquarrie Boba Fett helmet at Gamestop went back to get it and it was gone... :( I guess due to the Mando craze.

    This concept helmet really looks great. I read some reviews of the regular Boba helmet and the people complained that it doesn't comes with voice modification or any other extra. Only the antenna that you can put down and up.

    The Stormtrooper that you have looks great too. Does it came with voice modification, also? Do you live in US? If you do how much you pay for these helmets there?

    The model shop I frequent has a display case for $750 but I don't have enough room in my apartment maybe when I get a house or condo.

    The voice modification is lackluster. But I have to have someone listen to it when I wear the helmet maybe I can't hear it because I'm wearing it. :confused: It cost me roughly $100 at Toys R Us when they were open. I checked Amazon its going for $100 to 300 dollars US. :cool:

    Received mine today.

    It's a cool helmet to display. Unfortunately my daughter got scared with the sound...:eek:

    I just think Hasbro missed the opportunity to put some real phrases on theses helmets. It had been cool if they have added some classic lines as: "Impressive, most impressive", No, I am your father", etc...

    Received my second Black series helmet.
    Luke's Red Five!!
    Liked this more than Vader's because of the sounds.
    This helmet looks perfect and you can simulate parts of the Battle of Yavin and Hoth. My favorite is Yavin with some memorable phrases.
    Already bought my third one and waiting for arrive: Boba Fetts.

    Boba's helmet arrived.
    Its just an excellent replica. Excellent material and the weathering effects are pretty good. There is only the antenna option as an extra, but it is a very beautiful item to display.

    I’m hoping Santa drops the Black Series Mando helmet down the chimney this year… :p

    It’s technically not Black Series but I definitely plan on getting the Luke Skywalker Pilot helmet from Galaxy’s Edge this spring as well.

    I've got Poe's X-wing helmet, and I enjoy it a good bit. Sound effects are decent (for me when Im wearing it) but that really had no factor in its purhase. Used Halloween as an excuse to buy it a couple years ago and really am glad I did. Hoping to eventually use it as part of a nice cosplay once I get a chance to pull the X-Wing jumpsuit together, but that will probably be a little while. I'll post pics when I do!

    Wondering how accurate this model is? How much? Does it comes with any electronics?

    I have this one on my list alongside Wedge's and FO Stormtrooper. The problem its to find more space in the living room.

    From what I’ve seen online, it’s pretty similar to the Black Series one. I saw that it was $70 at Galaxy’s Edge and it does make sounds.
