That's gross Pat!!   ;D
I know, but a "must" for those hardcore Brad Pitt fans.
Been checking out German eBay for Fury souvenirs, just too early, when the film does come out, I imagine there will also be alot of
tanker jackets and tanker helmets being sold for a pretty penny. (And I have some original ww-2 2nd Armor patches for them.) ;)

seems bonkers mate , I can't see on any of his listings any actual proof its screen worn etc,etc...
if it's fully cert'd I suppose it would seem kind of right price wise .
anyone know if it's the real thing ?

The ones "in the know" on the other forum seem doubtful. Much the same thing happened in the wake of SPR and BoB. Suddenly, there was a plethora of allegedly "genuine screen-used items". Without cast-iron provenance I would never even contemplate shelling out that kind of money!

Speaking of Russian goggles, German eBay, about $30, apparently original.

Yes Pat. Epic Militaria is a well established Welsh outfit. They are currently offering a range of "Fury Specials", including those goggles...see below.

Yeah that's epic as Ian said , Those Goggles are original just post war it's a bit hard to tell the difference
ass they pretty much remained unchanged throughout production ,like the Brit MKVIII's .
£15 is a good price ,,been a good many years since I bought any .

I only noticed EPIC after you mentioned it.  :-[
 But I'm still wondering what's going to hit the market here in Germany when the film comes out.
 Even over here, alot of reenactors wanted to reenact BOB, and saving Pvt. Ryan when those films came out, and US ww-2 militaria
original and repro was/is  still going for good money.
 I thought I'd add again the tanker helmet for $15,000 on eBay, and hoping that when any of you find some "Fury" paraphernalia selling for outrageous prices, please add them here.

More affordable ones; ;)

I see Buzz Rickson has tanker jackets for sale now, only  £399.99 and/or $637 or 510 €uros.
I'd buy one with my Christmas bonus, but big boy sizes are out of stock, gosh darn it!!  >:(

Pat...Rickson's stuff is good...virtually perfect repros in every respect...but it invariably costs and arm and a leg and is aimed primarily at the home Japanese market, so sizes tend to favour the small . No good for ol' fogies like us!  ;)

Ian, or you mean a BIG ol' fogey like me.  ;) Did you look at the size chart?  XXL is a size 44. :o
Guess not all Japanese are Sumo wrestlers.
 I'm a chest size 46, that is a XL t-shirt in the States, correct me if I'm wrong. Where I work, we also sell t-shirts, and a European XL won't fit me, I need a XXXL!
 Here's a German militaria dealer, boughten from him before. Anyway looks like he's getting ready for the big storm after the film comes out here, not the 1st pattern tanker jacket, but only 99 €uros and/or $123 or £78, and has big boy sizes.
