    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    Personally, i'm not a helmy person either.. however, these pieces i agree are beatiful in their own right and, money permitting, i will try and buy some of the pieces that are realeased. I would defintely get aragorn's crown.. and the helm of elendil looks nice too. I defintely wouldn't mind some of the elvish helms, not the helm's deep ones, they were well.. i don't know actually, but yeah. Oh, i also liked Eomers one, with the horse hairs coming out of it :), i think its horse hairs anyway.

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    Sauron's helmet is definitely awesome looking, i wouldn't mind owning that one bit.

    I didn't say i didn't like the 3rd Age elven helms..they are nice too, but i just don't feel that they were as magnificent as the others, perhaps also the fact that they elves got killed and all in them, but that doesn't alter my thinking by much. I'm just pretty much saying it wouldn't be at the top of my list of "Helms to buy". It sorta doesn't look that real either in the gold colour it was in. But i don't know, i'm just rambling now, its the lack of sleep...

    Sauron's Helmet! That thing is the essence of evil. Nice.

    yeh saurons helm looks great. In the extended dvd they mentioned it looked like a rtting horses face. the long and elongated nostrils, big eye holes, and the spikey parts look great. evil authority by use of force and torture is what this helm displays.

    I don't like Sauron's helmet. I think he looks like The Shredder. Its just kind of over-the-top. Like using the handle "KillDeath" when playing a shooting game. Its like its trying to hard to be scary/bad/evil.

    I think the Nazgul are far far far more evil looking than Sauron.

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    personally I don't like the third age elven helms because they look like they offer very little protection. If I remember right it is just a small portion of the head that's covered and it just seems like, what's the point?

    I really like the Last Alliance ones, though.

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    Well, not to excuse them, (it is a valid point about protection), but the Galadhrim are archers more than sword-fighters. What's the likelihood they'd have full (and heavy ) and possibly vision limiting helmets?

    Frankly, I like 'em. Their purty.

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    Good point--I guess I still think they just seem a little flimsy for battle, though, especially one where they had to know sooner or later thed'd begetting Uruks in their face up close and personal.

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    Maybe that's why they had them at all. After all, none of the Galadhrim were wearing helms in Lothlorien. They had the trees, etc. for cover. Going to Helm's Deep, they had to slap something together.

    But then, maybe they just didn't have much smarts when it came to helms.:p

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    I like the HD elves helmets as a sculpture, not being a warrior I don't know how they'd work in combat. They look almost like a withered leaf, contrasting with the 2nd age helmet which looks like a sprouting bud, just MHO. I'd love to have them both on my mantle.

    I`d definetly buy Faramirs and the Gondorian Soldiers Helmets, I really like them.

    My dream would be a full suit of Gondorian Armour, man that would be awesome.

    Re: helms- what do ya wantin your collection?

    I've been pleading for Éomer's helm for a while; it's still at the top of my list.
    I'd also love to have Sauron's, but I doubt I will because of a lack of $$$

    I hope that they make Eomer's helm and Aragorn's Crown. I would absolutely get them. I have already decided to get Aragorn's Crown if they release it.
