    The helmet with the box is quite collectable today.
    That is when you realize you are getting older. The stuff you played with as a kid is considered antique and or collectable.
    For mine, I was so small that could hardly see out of it. But it didn't stop me from playing with it. I do remember distinctly that Christmas asking for a real suit of armor....I got this instead. Still loved it.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Dan it has had some repairs it looks like it was originally painted black and some of the screws have been added to hold it together. I'm going to have to do a little work to it such as some wood glue . I'm also thinking about making a stand for it .
