You can't just carve out an existing sculpt on the production line.  Though one could permanently modify a pre-existing mold to be hollow vs. solid....

Chances are you're both right - it's a new mold molded after the Commtech version.

Right Harley, what I'm saying in my post is that you carve out a CT helmet and put that into production rather than sculpting a-new from the ground up...  Not that they did this that I'm aware of, it's just a suggestion as to what's perhaps likely if the helmet appears "old" in its sculpt looks, but yet it's obviously new enough to be a production-run removable ST helmet other than the old POTF2 LUke/Han helmets.

For anyone out there missing any coupons; I have a few Scout and Tusken coupons.  Just send me a SASE and they are yours.

I snagged one of these at Star Wars weekends a couple weeks ago, but I have not received any of the 6 I sent in for.  Check has not cleared though.

No. My check cashed the end of May. Doesn't look like they've started shipping yet.

Yup, my check was cashed about 2 weeks ago and I figure it will arrive while I am on vacation next week. :-\

I have a biker scout and tusken raider that's all I bought from this line, so I have no need for the coupons.
I traded with DSJ a couple years ago for a canada clone trooper helmet for an Ephant Mon if anyone wants to verify I'm good for trading.

Just sent off for mine.

I had the vintage figures a while back but they were straight from China and didn't come with UGH stickers.

Toys r US in the Uk have just started stocking the Galactic Hunt figures so I've shelled out £50 and ended up damaging the cards opening the damn things. 

I hope it's worth it!!

Regards,

Nick

I sent mine off about 3 weeks ago, and still nothing...
