.BIKER SCOUT HELMET

 

PURCHASED MAY 2008.

This helmet is really cool but too small for most adults. Seem all basic masks are scaled down 15-20% or so. Grrrrr. The visor does lift up which is a cool feature. The only major drawback is the extremely soft vinyl plastic used to make these masks, doen't let it keep the shape from out of the mold and in time, bends way out of shape. A harder plastic like the Classic Action line, would have been more appropriate... I'd even be happy to pay a little $$$ extra to get that.

Unfortunately, Don Post has since lost their liscence, so the likelyhood of getting a better version are zero :(

   

Who can resist a cool mask replica when it's under $80 right?
After purchasing my 6th mask, I got the idea that if I made the costumes to go with them, I would be able to somewhat re-create part of the lucasfilm archives in my own home :)
