|BrickForge Beret - 360 View|
The BrickForge piece does not appear to grip as tightly to the minifigure head when compared to the LEGO beret, but maintains connection. Armothe of BrickForge states that their tests show the clutching power of this piece is comparable to that of the LEGO Star Wars clone trooper helmet.
BrickForge has a wide assortment of berets available in their store. This design is currently offered in black, blue, dark green, medium blue, orange, pink, red, tan , white, and yellow.
|"Clear out, clown! Let a real man through."|
The BrickForge option provides a rounded design with a high profile for custom touches, available in a wide color palate. Although the clutching power seemed less than the TLG part, it remained in place and was not a significant issue.
