Yeah.  I guess someone has to be made an example of.  Shepperton did put its name out a little too much to be an unlicensed company.  Showing up at conventions with a huge banner with stormtrooper lids for sale and all.
I'm not wearing hockey pads.

MR should make a Jango Fett mandalorian helmet to complete the circle eh?

Just looking at your blue and red trooper helmets made me think of Jango's decapitated head! LOL!...

I always think of something like this, along the same lines.

You may notice that I've changed my display a bit, part of more reorganizing in process.  I decided that the Helmets should be by the appropriate sabers.

You must have a super huge head then ;D
My head is pretty big and it fits me. To bad though I can't wear my glasses with the mask on. :'(
Luke,  is it just me though or does the masks smell really funny?

Ok, I got a question Luke. Does that special ops helmet come with a display case, since Clone Trooper helmet did only have a stand, no display case...

Where is Luke when I need him, I hope he hasn't retired! Ultimate collector Luke Skywalker, I command you to step in! This Special Ops is really interesting helmet, but I have heard it had some issues, I wonder what was that about? Is this a good quality helmet? Luke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I use to have the Special Ops helmet. 

Chancellor, in reply to your prior question, none of the clone trooper helmets come with a display case - only the stand.  Display cases for the helmets, however, are sold in the aftermarket, as you probably know.  Ebay seller kodofett is probably the best case maker out there - I'v purchased from him several times.

As far as issues with the Special Ops, I think there were some problems with the uniformity of the blue paint on the helmet.  Some of them, if I'm not mistaken, had two different shades of blue. 

The one I had was fine, though.
