New Macross 1/1 DYRL helmets


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

I went to the masei website and looked at the size chart, then I looked what size my snowboard helmet was and got the size that match the measurements. I guess you could take measuring tape and wrap it around your head, or go to a sports shop and try on different helmets, he'll you could go to a bike shop and try motorcycle helmets there too.

I believe this is the masei helmet, if you look at the glass it's not a dark blue like the yamato. I think. And the glass looks not as bulbous.

Masei version


Pre-production Masei I think


Yamato one


I think the masei one looks good, plus its way cheaper than the Yamato one and is DOT certified. Which means if I had a bike I could wear it. Plus you can get it in any size.

Can't wait to get mine, I'm getting the Hikaru version, if I like it I might get the Roy one as well, not sure if they are making max's, I know they are making other colors schemes not just normal such like black and yellow.

Edit: mor pics

I received a reply from Masei Helmets in regards to my e-mail reservation.

Thanks! we have red/white yellow/black blue/white black matt black gray/white

and when ready, we will email you and pay via Paypal for it. US$189 for the first 200 units
later, it is US$289.. now we have hundred people made reservation so far.

They don't have a yellow/white for Roy like the one in their picture on Facebook? LOL I wonder if they mean that's the yellow/black? Wrote back, waiting for them to confirm. But since I already have a Yamato Roy helmet, I might spring for a Max or Hikaru. Though Yellow/Black or black doesn't sound too bad, even if non-canon...

This is the response I got last night. From the looks of it, I take it they have more or less around 100 reservations for the helmets.

Hey Erick:

Thanks for your email. and we keep and save your email now.

When ready, we will email you for this. The first 200 units is only US$189 including shipping fee.

Later, it will be US$289 including shipping fee.

We have red/white, yellow/black, blue/white, matt black, black/white for you.

They will be ready before November as scheduled.

So, we get hundred of people in reservation.

I was thinking on writing them back to ask and see if I made it into the 200 slots and get the helmet for the $189.00 initial price.

Then why have they shown the Roy colour on top of the Honda petrol tank>?

Anyways, they're going to upload their FB in 2 weeks with production shots - as per their e-mail to me.

I wish some enterprising 3D artiste would release a "The Many Helmets of Macross" series in 1/4 scale..... :rolleyes:

I'd be in for one of these as well, but I'd like a pre-order setup a little more formal than just an email sent into a big waiting list in the sky. I'm not sure if I'd get a Hikaru or a Roy but either one would be a hoot to wear on my V-rod.

I was told that my email was saved and would be contacted before December and that updates will be posted. I'm cautiously optimistic about this. Missed out on the Yamato's....
