View Full Version : Brazilian Falcon Piloto Question

How could I be sure if the helmet and visor of a Falcon Piloto are really the original brazilian ones or are just some US version (Grunt v2 helmet I think), are the differences noticeable by having both versions side to side? I suppose the plastic quality of the helmet should be different, but the visor will probably be hard to spot?

Maybe anyone with a complete Falcon Piloto could help me out on this.

The colour of the Brazilian grunt helmet will match the colour of the figure. It's not the same as the regular North American Grunt. I tried my best to take some photos of the Grunts I had for comparison sake.

The left Grunt from Argentina, the two middle ones are from Brazil and the one of the right is the regular North American version. Same applies for the helmets.

Thanks a lot! That comparison picture was just what I needed. It's a bit hard to notice the difference between between US Grunt and brazilian helmets from the pictures, but I guess by having both on hand it will be easy to tell.

Btw regarding the visor, is it any different from the US visors? From your pictures it's seems a bit pink is it so?

This was the best I could do (Regular figure on left, Brazilian figure to right).

Thanks again, that helped a lot, the difference is very noticeable in the last picture and the visor seems very different than the US release one as well.
