    Absolutely Eomer's helm as long as it is the quality of elendil's ( that one is a peach)

    Haven't seen it in the extended edition of ROTK though I'm sure it will appear since WETA did a bust of it but the mouth of Sauron would be awesome - especially next to the witch king if they did it

    And though not truly a helm but I must have Aragorn's crown to go with my limited edition anduril.

    Now that I have Sauron's helm, we REALLY need the helm of the Witchking. Seriously.

    I'm perfectly content with Sauron's helm, but if you are dying to have a witchking helm, www.steltercreativewoodworks.com has a reasonably good one (as long as you are willing to cough up $600 for it, which I am not).

    Something is not right with that helm, I can't quite put my finger on it. Some angles, it's looks good, but others it just looks wrong - like the pics where the helm is being worn. It takes talent to do that kind of work, but I think I'll wait for UC to make a full replica.

    I know what you mean HybridK03, but, being made from only DVD extras and pictures, it's darn good. Also, I would recommend Sauron's helm over Stelter Creative Woodwork's witchking since it is cheaper, bigger and completely screne acurrate.

    What seems to be the problem with that WK piece, is that the neck of the individual wearing it is too small - this would likely be a problem with any person. But that sure is a well-done replica, worth consideration; good link!

    Did you buy the official helm of Sauron or a knock-off? $100 is aweful cheap.

    Could you post some pics? I'd just like to see how it compares to the official UC helm.

    The only problem with the Witchkings helm is that its not really a full helm. It's more of a mask. If you look at those pictures, it doesnt cover all of the head, and its back is just a black cloth. It would be difficult trying to create a "helm" that would be wearable, because it would have to fit just right. Thats the only problem I can see with making the Witchkings. Other then that... i'd support it and buy it... asuming I had the money.

    Theoden and Eomer. In that order. The rest are lovely but I can live without them. If United release eithe ror both of Theoden or Eomer's helms, I'll happily forgo food for a month to buy them. There's no way I'm letting those 2 slip through mygrasp. They shall be mine, oh yes....they shall be mine.....

    ^ :D

    If I have money available to me, I will probably buy Theoden's helm to go with my Herugrim.

    Then I might buy an elven warrior helm to go with the elven warrior sword I hope to buy.
