I have a 3D scan of the goggle frames, may have them reproduced along with the lenses.
(Made an imperfect loop to annoy people with OCD. )
I wish I knew what those collars were, though!Me, too. I wonder whether the original prop exists anywhere that would shed light on that detail. If not, a good, high-rez publicity photo that shows that detail.
