    Nov 10, 2011, 12:22 PM - Need some advice on picking/finding an ESB helmet #1

    Hi. I'm new to TDH and could use some advice as to how to pick a high quality/proper helmet model and who to get it from. It seems like there are too many choices and I could really use some help. I'll be going with a Manowar jet pack and Wickedbeard armor, and Fettdad is helping me finish off my real Webley so I'm getting a start on my screen accurate ESB Fett project but the helmet issue I am stalled out on at the start. I'm 6'3" with a longer neck and a little bigger head so a proper sized helmet is definitely an issue for me. Any advice out there?

    I did find a guy named Randy at Sith Planet who quoted some great prices but I know nothing of his work and can find no references.

    Never heard of him, best bet is to get one from the cargo hold here either finished or as a kit and paint it yourself...there are a number of folks who sell them here. Depending on your price range and what your goals are there are plenty available

    Any suggestions for model/size for me? This is my biggest question. Seems like there are so many variations by different makers that I have no idea what would work well for me. I'll need a bigger bucket and that's all I know.

    I think FPH and the MR and it's remoulds like Asoks FP Budget and the FP Premium runs a little larger than others. But I'm not the expert so hopefully someone else can chip in.

    The FPH was an original mold of Fettpride's and not related to the MR series of helmets. The MR helmets were made 12% larger than the PP3 helmet.

    That much I know. But maybe I wasn't clear enough.

    there are threads on sizing of helmets...the FPH is bigger than an MR base helmet the MR is slightly larger than the GMH

    If you want big go MSH or FPH.

    Thank you guys! Now I'll just have to start tracking down either a MSH or FPH.

    Contact Asok on these boards. He has the molds for the FP helmet, and is casting them in Cold Cast. I have one from him, and it looks great.

    Asoks FP is not the same as a FPH though.
