    1 Week Ago - Oct 13, 2014, 1:00 PM - Another one of those helmet questions #1

    Hello Awsome People
    I, as many others here, are trying to build a Fett Suit, and I am trying to figure out witch Bucket to buy, and there is a lot of info on buckets here. I tryed on my towns local Fett Boba fett helmet, witch is a Bobamaker helmet and it was't any room to spare. wondered then If a fph2, gmh or a asok budget would be better, wanna put in one of salamanderkings servo and light kits. So the question is:
    all of those helmets are bigger than Bobamakers one? and how much room the servo needed? and witch bucket you would recommend sizewise?

    Personally I recommend the FPH2, not sure of his wait time though. The FP premium is also a very nice helmet, and both are a little larger than the GMH or the budget FP lid. Do a search for FPH2 and scroll down to locate the introduction thread on it by Fettpride. Down in the thread Chris has some good pics with measurement differences in his lids....the premium is very close to the fph2 in size, and you should be able to get one pretty quick.

    i thought animefan currently owns the fp premium? he makes a good helmet. the asok fp budget is another great helmet, though the interior is a bit smaller due to the thickness of the resin, but it's great to work on as well. i'm pretty sure fp himself only makes the fph2 and gmh any more.

    I own bought an Asok Budget. That being said, I've seen a lot more quality right out of the box from people showing off their Animefan helmets. That's what I would go with, though I had an apparently less than common experience with my Asok. Just my 2 cents.

    Chris only makes the fph2 lids as far as I know. I think he sold the GMH mold a while ago.

    Yes, Animefan has the premium molds, and Asok has the GMH and budget molds.
    I mentioned that the premium and fph2 are very similar size wise. If you can handle the wait, I'd go fph2....but the premium is a solid well made lid and should be a much shorter wait time.

    thanks for all the respones guys, trying to figure out a helmet when Im si a lot harder than I tought.
    Im 5'9 and around 190lbs, and a fph2 or a animefan premium would maybe be alittle big to me? rather than the smaller asok budget?

    Being honest dude I had a GMH and felt it was to small I'm about your build and slightly taller but I think FPH2 is the only way to go,I personally love mine :-)

    No, they would not be too big for you. At 190 I'd stay away from smaller.

    Asok budget is BIGGER than the GMH. Just FYI

    The GMH and Bobamaker are about the same which are about the size of the Asok Jango.


    oh and I am 5'10 185 and all of these helmets work on me. The GMH and the Bobamaker don't give me a ton of room, but they work just fine.

    Without armor on any of these lids will give most folks the bobble headed look lol.
    I believe the Jango lid is a tad smaller than the screen used Boba.
    If you look at the screen caps in the gallery, you will notice that the helmet in ESB is definitely kind of big on Bulloch.
    I don't know if Chris(FP)was making a premium way back in 2008, but it was his mold regardless. And as Mullreel stated, the Boba budget(also FP's mold)would also be a good candidate.

    The budget and premium are the exact same size. The fph2 is about the same size but different dimensions all over. Left is a premium right is a fph2

    Not a good comparison shot but I assure you they're very close in size. But honestly the fp helmet is a better quality helmet. Just better glass work.
