    1985 DP bucket?

    I just got a Boba helmet that says: C1985 Lucasfilm LTD. on the back. The plastic is very thick. It is real? I have not heard of a 85 DP before.

    Just go to http://www.billwarren.net/Jango/Bill/newhelmet/ It is thicker than my DP 96 and 97. It is also green on the inside as well. I was told that DP 95 where white. Also, look how thick the plastic is. Just looked odd to me.

    Not all 95's were white interior, only the first run or two I think. After that they were green also. I would say that it's a 95 with a scratch. I can't really read the number very well in the picture. Either way it's a nice helmet

    Is it just me, or does anyone else see 1885? There must be two scratches.

    Great Scott!!!
    Yup, that's a '95 DP with green interior just like the one I have. Yours looks like it had been repainted with battle damage and added real scratches so when painted again in the Jango scheme, it must have distorted the copyright on the back.

    Maybe it's a recast and the date got screwed up??

    Man, I loved those 1885 buckets. They were so close to being movie sized!! You can really see the shrinkage and warpage over the hundred or so years....

    Problem solved. Thread gone in 24! Danke.

    Well seening as how I painted that very helmet, I can tell you it is indeed a '95. The copyright info was already filled somewhat and when I asked if the guy would like me to fix it, he said "Nah, just fill the dent.", so I did. So it's probably the bondo that distorts the numbers.
