    Spotted over on Rebelscum - a cryptic banner ad. [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/images/efxleaderboard.jpg]Ad here[/link].

    Speculation is that it is a new prop licensee. And 7/23/08 happens to be the San Diego Comic Con Preview Night.

    See [link=http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=2987446&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1]this thread[/link] for all the speculation!

    Edit - minor language warning for some of the posts in that thread.

    Edit - updated title for the stormie helmet update.
    Edit - updated title for the X-Wing.

    Received my new Star Wars Insider in the mail this weekend and found the EFX ad on the back cover. It lists their website and here's the link:

    http://www.efxcollectibles.com/

    Not much there but a landing page, but it's something to keep checking.

    I guess I'll get to check them out at Comic Con this summer. Not sure if they will be selling anything then, or just talking about what they will be coming out with in the future.

    This could be good, or bad. *Flash Back to the MR "Build-your-own-saber"* It could be scary.

    A little off-topic, but have they made a Heroes Kensei sword replica? Figured that was something that master replicas would do.

    Heads up, those who want to try to get the 1:1 scale stormie helmet. Sale day is July 8. Check out all the information and a link to the efx website [link=http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/story/eFX_Collectibles_Offers_11_Stormtrooper_Helmet_115321.asp]
    here[/link] on TFN.

    A bigger heads-up for anyone who had ordered this directly from MR and had their order cancelled - you will be given ordering priority if you contact efx. Details are in the story. You have to do that by July 1.

    Ordered one, but the only confirmation received said waiting to process. Hope that everything went through. Did anyone else order this and has anyone gotten any confirmation or other messages.

    got my efx ANH stormtrooper helmet today!

    This thing is top notch! I love the green lense option. It's really solid and well made and the paint job is flawless. the inner lining is the same as the MR Boba Fett!

    I got #219 out of 500

    here's some early Christmas in July shots of it.
