but as a display piece pretty impressive.
unfortunately had I known when I preordered this item that there is a "rogue cut" of the film that will insert the rogue subplot that was cut out of the theatrical release (http://screenrant.com/x-men-days-future-past-rogue-scenes-explained/) scheduled for a 2015 release I would have waited for that instead.
shame on 20th century fox for not going ahead and including the rogue cut on the release knowing this is going to be one of the top holiday season sellers this year!
The helmet seems to be made out of a dense resin material, and is relatively heavy for its size. Mine weighed in at 1.67 pounds on the scale (helmet and stand). As you can see from the photos, it comes as a two-piece item and the helmet sits freely on the stand. I like it. It looks nice for what it is, it's not cheap plastic, and it doesn't take up a lot of space on the shelf.
MINOR SPOILERS BELOW
Days of Future Past begins in a desolate and dark future New York City. Some members of the cast from the original X-Men Trilogy are on the run from giant robot Sentinels. They meet up and decide to send Wolverine back in time 50 years to stop this war before it begins. A story like this could become convoluted and verbose quickly, but Kinberg manages to walk that fine line and deliver only a bit of exposition to quickly set the tone and plot.
The time travel aspect of the film does a few great things to the story and franchise. It creates tension, real purpose and "corrects" some mistakes from previous installments in the X-Men film franchise that until recently has been poorly managed. Ultimately, DOFP is packed full of excellent acting (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender shine yet again) and for once, an X-Men movie doesn't over use Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. As charismatic as Jackman is, it's easy to make him the focus of the film, and in a way he is, but really he's just the guy that moves the story along, giving way to focus on the supporting cast.
It is an ensemble movie and wouldn't work without sharing the screen. The relationships and interactions are what drive this movie along and make it so much fun. There's the right amount of humor and the best action in any X-Men movie to date.Read more ›

Greatly enjoyed the movie and the replica is amazing. My only complaint is that the helmet is not life size. Its about the size of a fist, but still pretty cool.Published 7 months ago by Zak
