Oh I just love that helmet I picked one up earlier this year it is so cool. BTW I never though about switching out the lenses I will have to see how hard that would be or do they just pop out I haven't checked to see.

The lenses are easy to swap with just three screws holding each lens in place.

I found the smoke lenses about 15 minutes ago on ebay, but it was the last one they had, sorry.
I am sure there are more around since I found the set I just found in a minute's worth of searching.

I'll post a pic of the swap and final product when I get mine in.

(I am still smiling like a kid right now looking at the helmet!)

Very Happy

Hey Jay, is that the eFX Collectibles Stormy mask that actually looks good while at the same time is affordable??? I've often thought of getting one, the green eyes was the only put off, so now you've said that, I may have to save up  Smile

Yes it is.
The price on the thing seems to vary from day to day for some reason - at least on Amazon which is where I got it from. I got it for a tad over $150 shipped tongue so I couldn't pass it up, especially since I had a bunch of Amazon credit from XMas!

I love it and all I need to do now is find a great way/place to display it.  thinking 

cheers!
Very Happy

Thanks for the info Jay on the lenses I will have to get a set now. Mine was also in the $150 range but I got it at a local comic book store.

The ones I picked up didn't have an actual pic, but based on the feedback and good description, I am hopeful they will be good. We'll see when I get them........
