Yeah, I got the 1/48 Thunder Hummer kit way back in 2008 (through EXO) .... and I still haven’t painted it yet!

Oh cool! Looks good even without the paintjob! And like everyone else, I'm drooling over the helmets. I'd take Max's.

OK, that's a tad over what I'm willing to pay but very sweet! At that price, I would expect a real working spec replica.

Or you can also get the motorcycle versions.

That's what I did... I threw my hat into some ebay bids and wound up with 5 helmets!

going to be a bit more work than I had thought, but Eventually I will end up with a TV and DYRL Roy, and 3 customs.

Awesome helmets @Kicker773

@sqidd  I have one of these myself and for the price tag they're quite nice ( mine is set up as Shin Kudo's from Macross Zero), the Yamato's are better but they are quite pricey if you can even find one. This seller has Max's & Hikaru's Masei made helmets for sale if you're interested.

I don't get it.. how can he be selling it so cheap? Aren't normal motorcycle helmets upwards of $300+? Is he really offering a full helmet here? is it for a child or something?

Well it might be a motorcycle helmet under that custom body frame but these don't seem to be a holding a very high re-sale value like the YAMATO versions. 

I took mine apart years ago to customize it and while it's a motorcycle helmet, it's feel like a very simple & basic helmet as best, DOT approved or not. 

Over the past few years I've seen some of these Masei Helmets whether it be size S/M or L/XL go for as low as $55.00 plus shipping on Ebay. The seller has a 100% rating so at least he seems to be honest. 

This is how mine arrived years ago at my request:

$55...I can deal with that. But I don’t feel like painting it so I’ll just continue to enjoy looking at pictures. 

Actually all of the Macross helmets that are still available are all Pre-painted & ready to wear. B))

I specifically ordered my helmet as unpainted so I could customize it. If you want a Roy, Max or Hikaru just keep an eye on Ebay or Amazon and they still pop up for sale.

How much did you have to cut away to fit the bubble, and how would you recommend going about it?

The bubble I purchased was fairly thin so a sharp pair of scissors worked just fine, any rough edges the Visor pretty much hides. I think I cut about an inch off so it would fit. 

About a year ago or so I replace that bubble visor with an actual US Navy Green & Clear Visor for that real world look. I'll some pics tomorrow.

Is this eBay seller the one who makes them? Man, if I could find a Focker I would buy it in a second!

That looks amazing! I’d love to see a custom TV Focker helmet!

So, I’m waiting on a few figures, and I’ll be screwed if Bandai ever does SOC Legendary Defender Voltron, the Sincline Combiner, and/or the Fleet of Doom Robeast Combiner.

But the Macross shelves are pretty much set:
