I said it before, and my stance and vote remains accuracy, FWIW. Even if the vintage goggle are not readily available, between resin casts and a free 3D model (Anyone in the world can have them printed for a price comparable to a pair of modern goggle, if they have to use a commercial service, or far less if they have a 3D printer or a friend with one.), I see no reason to allow more modern (and visibly inaccurate) goggles.

I posted this on one of the FB groups, but it should probably go here as well. And perhaps in a separate thread, which I may do later.

Iím fortunate to have a pair of Cebes, but I do think this could be a good option, for a fairly reasonable price even for those who have to use a commercial printing service.

This is a rough print off the printer. I didnít clean it up other than to tear off the bigger supports (the vent area in particular needs more cleaning up still). To me, it looks like it could be a pretty viable option, once cleaned up a bit (especially those top vents, although a different print orientation might help with that) and painted and weathered! (And obviously with a lens added, which is simple enough)

The model is far from perfect, but I donít think it will take any more work than we usually lavish on various costume parts to finish. The usual sanding and painting, cut a few small holes for straps and such, cut a lens from plastic, and thatís nearly it. Iíve done far more work on blasters and other props.

The model could use improvement, particularly if someone could clean up the model a bit and add some small missing details (beyond my skills at this point). But even as it is, I think itís better than using modern goggles that donít have anything like the right shape.

So here are the photos of this rough print (not printed at a fine resolution, just draft 0.3 settings and no special tuning), alongside my vintage Cebes.











And one showing it raw on the printer, just for fun:



I might spend a little time finishing these just to see how they turn out completely done.

I agree. Now that there's a free 3d print pattern, the goggles are no harder to get than any other greeblie. I would lean toward accuracy since they're such a specific look.

I also prefer to have more accurate goggles but not everybody in every country may have access to a 3D-printer. Also, some people do not use Facebook and might not be aware of Guillermo googles. If we want people to only use these two types of replica goggles then they should be available in the sales area here in the forum.
