The Black Series -- 1:1 Helmet Replicas
« on: September 23, 2023, 02:03 AM »
I can't believe we don't have a thread for these yet. Has anyone else been collecting the Hasbro TBS Helmet Replicas? I picked up my first with the 332nd Clone Helmet and LOVE it. I don't have the extra change (or space) for the real high-end ones, but I feel like these are a really good deal for the price. I don't have room for many, but will definitely be adding Rex.

(Jeff please swap for sponsored links and I'll order one.  :P )

I want to but space is so limited. I've decided to just do imperial helmets so I have the Stormtrooper and Biker Scout helmets.

These are my primary collecting focus now.  I have them hanging on the walls in my man-cave.  The recently-released (and still available for retail) Biker Scout helmet is one of the best that they've done.

I've been seeing these a good deal at GameStop.  One store had at least 3 different helmets in stock a few days ago - the 332nd Clone Trooper, Bo-Katan and the Artillery Stormtrooper.  I've seen the Darth Vader helmet more recently at Target.  And Hasbro seems to be responding to demand because they're offering the Red 5 helmet again, too.  The Captain Rex helmet is really tough to resist.  With as many clones as Dee Bradley Baker portrayed, Captain Rex was such a well developed character.  And seeing Rex portrayed in live action was amazing.

But I agree with Nick - the space these require to be displayed properly is a serious challenge!  Does anyone know if these would fit in an IKEA Detolf?  I've seen images of the helmets resting on top of them.  And I also have to wonder if Hasbro will get around to offering some kind of a helmet display pedestal at some point.  It might make for a nicer way to show these off rather than sitting on a shelf.

I am not sure if the Ikea cube shelf I have is a Detolf, but at one point I was displaying a few helmets in one.  The rangefinder on Boba (and I'd imagine the others as well) did not fit, but otherwise it was OK.  Vader was snug against the sides at the very bottom of the helmet. 

I am currently using black metal helmet hangers from Amazon.  Makes them look like they are "floating" on the wall.

I saw reports of people finding the Trapper Wolf helmet at Ollie's stores for $29.99!  That price would definitely get me in on this line.

I was just coming to post that the Trapper helmet is in Ollie's ad that drops today.  I went yesterday but the cashiers wouldn't sell until this morning.  They also have the Marvel Legends Winter Soldier Cap shield for $40 in the ad if you're also into that kind of thing .

Now it seems that the Scout Trooper helmets are in Target stores.  It's interesting to see how this line has been developing.

I picked up the phase 2 Clone Trooper helmet today at Target.  The clearance tag said it was $62.49. And it rang up for $37.99!!!

They had more, and all on a clearance endcap.  But when I checked the Target app they were all full price there.  It was impossible to find them on clearance that way.

For those in the market for the Death Watch Mandalorian helmet, they're now marked down to $99 at GameStop.

I waited on the Mandalorian Death Watch helmet, and it got reduced at GameStop to $69.98!  My membership got me an additional 5% off, and I also used my monthly $5 coupon to bring the price down further.

Also?  The Bo-Katan helmet also seems to have been marked down at GameStop.  I think that's now $99.99.

The Stranger helmet sold out on Amazon and Pulse. Did Hasbro under estimate demand or are people buying it to show support and maybe an F U to haters?
