Hey Everyone, I have a question regarding my Rubie's bucket. I've noticed that right above the visor in the helmets shown on all the guards CRLs they all have what I guess you could call a "step". But on my bucket I don't have this "step" above the visor at all. Would this be an issue trying to get approval or would it have to be modified? Thanks in advance, I will attach some pictures to show what I mean.

This is an old pic with the stock visor of my helmet with no "step"

And this is what is on the CRL with the "step"

Hello future squad member, glad to see another guard is coming. To answer your question my bucket is the 2011 version as. I actually bought my suit off a fellow squad member earlier this year. The CRL's are always being updated as even though mine was previously approved I still had to resubmit and retake some pics for final approval. As for the helmet, it may be a case of which version of the guard you are doing as there is the ROTJ, ROTS and even Rogue One. I am not sure which version you are going for but each of those version has slight differences between them... if that affects the helmet as well I am not sure. I wish I could be of more help but that is the first thing that comes to mind. Hopefully someone else can provide some more info. Look forward to trooping with you soon. :)

Hi Starscream,

I have the same bucket as you and I didn't have an issue with approval as a ROTS Royal Guard. You are correct however in that all the CRLs seem to feature the "step" in the visor, though to be fair I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out!

I think as long as you get the visor changed you should be in the clear. Of course, its also a good idea to check with your GML. :)

All the movie ones have the step in the visual BUT as Rubies is a licensed product will let it slide. Do you know what the date stamp on the helmet you got is? I know some of the older Rubies helmets had the step.

Could you get a closer photo of the missing step section for reference.

Thank you all for your responses! :tr: I had never noticed it either until I started looking at pictures of my helmet and the one on the CRL but also started seeing that other vendors who make Royal Guard Buckets had the step. Glad to see that none have had an issue with it, but I will still check with my GML.

LuciousTalvloinne, I don't have my bucket at hand since it's stored away at my moms place until I can get my robes...BUT luckily I never really delete photos on my phone. I apologize for the low quality of the pics I will be posting. The first one is when I first got it and was trying it on with my Cosplaysky robes so it still had the stock visor. The second photo was one that I sent to a friend to show him that I removed the visor and how it looked like being able to see the person underneath.
