    Rage Against The Machine - No Shelter - YouTube

    Check out this RATM vid for no shelter. Now take a closer look at the helmet that is used for the "mind control scenes". If im not mistaken that is none other than the Fett himself?

    When I did the first capture, I thought that there's a cross in the T-visor, but in the other images you can see that is in fact the right upper ear cap glued to the front of the helmet. Interesting approach from a band that I love.

    Interesting! Good find. And the dent was filled in, too. Looks like a pretty big helmet.

    In the last image you can see the hint of the dent. I think it looks big because of the skinny guy and the 'mini-monitor' on the front, but the main question is what Boba Fett helmet was used to achieve that helmet in 1998? My guess is that they used a Don Post but I might be wrong.

    Hmmm, yeah, Good call on the dent, I think I see it now, between the first and second snap on the last photo. Tough on this mobile screen.

    if it was a Don Post, maybe it was a Don Post standard 1995, which looked wider than the later ones. I have seen the later versions reshaped to almost look like the 95, but the 95 had a better and bigger shape out of the box.

    No, you are right about the dent being filled! What I was saying was that you can see the filled dent's contour and not the actual dent.

    I love Hard and Heavy Metal (big Guns N' Roses fan), but also Speed and Thrash Metal (Sepultura - with Max Cavalera).

    Watched on bigger screen today. You can also see profile and head-on view schematic of the helmet on the projection screen behind the guy. Can see it in post #2, picture # 2 above also. I wonder if that was a design drawing for the video's prop helmet, and they ended up using it (the drawing) in the video also.

    Update!


    Okay, so, back in December 2012, I found the video's director and sent a message. I asked if he could kindly share any insight on the video's helmet, its design and components, the drawing, where it was sourced from, what's happened to it since then, and/or any other stories about the video that he may be open to sharing, etc.. I guess I figured ask for a lot and see what happens.


    So, earlier this month, (September 2014), I received a reply. Cool surprise! Here's the info:


    "... yes you are right it was a boba feet helmet. It was made by the art director Marcel Gravel who was very resourceful. The screen was made of a foam ( i think) with 4 bolts on the corners that were used as reference for the compositor to add the face. The face was the actor's face shot with a video camera and then refilled off the a monitor to create the moire effect. "

    cheers
