    Sorry to post 2 seperate haul threads in one day. But I'm totally geeked up about this one. This was #1 on my list. I found one at K-mart. It wouldn't ring up so I asked the girl to just type in the price. To my surprise it worked! :D  My inner nerd is very happy today!

    Nice haul man, I want that, but I have a huge head, the Vader helmet doesn't even fit. I worry about this one. I'm 33, BTW.
    You are also 27 posting on a site obsessed with a toyline aimed at kids. This whole saying your age as a readon ot to buy something is a moot point when you are posting it here, where most of us are over 20.

    HA! I'm ten years younger than you!

    Still, I'd feel like a fool with it on, besides, why would I want to hide my good looks?

    I asked my wife if she'll still love me if I ran around the house with it on, to which she replied "Just around the house right?" :lol

    You forgot that it wouldn't fit your over-inflated ego. ;) 

    I can't wait to wear this out of Target on June 2.

    That's KickASS!! I was tempted to pick one up while I was on vacation visiting my gf in Canada. And then making sweet sweet Autobot love to her! :p 

    But I didn't...mainly because I didn't have any place to pack it on the way home :(

    Nice score. I really just want on to put on display. I will have to try it on, and maybe wear it to the premiere, but thats about it.

    I have a large head and it just barely fits. I wear a size 7 5/8 " fitted baseball cap. I also have the Darth Vader voive changer helmet and this one fits much better. It has adjustment straps inside. I had to take them all to their furthest point. The bottom of the face shield just covers up my chin. So if I can wear it, the average Joe should have no problem.

    For those who asked what it does:

    It has a voice changer microphone inside, just like the Darth Vader Voice changer helmet. It also has three buttons on the ear piece outside of the helmet. One button says phrases from the movie, the 2nd makes the old school transforming sound, and the 3rd activates the voice changer.

    Overall it is quite fucking awesome! I'll be wearing it to the premiere at midnight!

    I'm 25, and I think that its neat. I'd buy it if it were on clearance.

    Now the Prime truck/gun thing... I'll be all over that.

    I also own spidey webshooters. Does this make me a loser?

    I posted this over at the picture thread in GD.

    Me at Otafest, the local Anime Convention. People LOVED the helmet. And yes, I Would wear this outside of a con or halloween.
    In fact, one day I may walk the streets with it on, just for kicks.
