Fallout 76 Collector's Helmet Recall
« on: September 24, 2019, 11:21:01 PM »
Hey guys,

Just wanted to spread the news here for whomever it may concern but it turns out that an exclusive Gamestop version of the T-51b PA helmet that was given as part of a promotion for FO76. Apparently there's a chance of mold growing in the nylon helmet liner.

BE ADVISED don't wear it if you do regularly and probably check the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (If you're an American) and it currently says you should ask for a refund due to this recall.

Stay Safe and Unwashed
But it'll help

Even the swag was full of fail.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

I own the one with the Power Armour edition, that's supposedly safe.

I've worn it now, so I guess I'm basically screwed.
The sun beyond the mountain glows
The yellow river seaward flows
You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

After days of shuffling around, I guess if you have the normal non painted version of the Power Armor helmet you should be good.

If you have like a red nuka cola painted one from Gamestop, then you may need to look into the issue.

It's the normal one, though they're identical, so I'm not sure how that works as it's supposedly the hood thing inside it that's moldy. Maybe it's a bad batch?

Yeah, I don't really know WHY one has mold and not the other, but a bad batch seems like a reasonable explanation.
