    May 16, 2013, 2:11 AM - Another sizing question... #1

    As much as I hate having to ask about helmet sizing…I need some expert advice. I am having a hard time trying to figure out which helmet best fits my frame and before I pull the trigger and buy something else that isn't going to work for me, I want to cover my bases as best as possible. I am built like a twig. I am 5’9” and 145lbs which has provided all sorts of challenges, being that most of the replicas tend to run a bit larger to fit a wider group of customers. Through my research here, it looks like either a GMH or a BM helmet could work, being that they are smaller, however since I haven’t seen either of these in person, I am not entirely sure. So anyone have have any suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated

    I did picked up an Asok FP CC a while back and to me it looks too big proportion wise. below is a pic of me wearing it with my custom chest, with some unfinished bells. I figure this will give you guys a decent basis for reference.

    Next to the armor (and your frame type) the helmet looks big, so you should try the GMH or the BM helmets.

    I agree. A tad bit big for your frame.

    Well if Jeremy Bulloch is 6'1" and weighed 150lbs or so then you are really close frame-wise just a tad shorter. Seems to me since the GMH was a straight cast it makes a more logical choice?

    Not sure if this helps you tons since it doesn't show the buckets ON someone, but I have found it of TREMENDOUS help (many thanks to Sleepalot for putting it together) - http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/h...-thread-45911/

    I'd say the GMH is probably the smallest helmet that's currently being produced.
    Unless you build your own custom helmet, that is.

    Fett was kind of a Bobble Head anyway. Look at the ESB Bespin Hallway Production Pics...I actually think it looks fine.

    I think you look fine. Look at your shoulders and the helmet size, its close. Up close the real fett looks like a bobble head > http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/galle...hp?photo=11038

    Sorry it took so long for a response, but thank you all for the responses. The general views here seems to be split haha. I will agree after seeing those ESB pics that it's really close. Now a thought occured to me after a couple days after I posted the pic, the soft parts I have on are really thin in comparison to what I will be getting for this build. Boba's flight suit appears to be a medium to heavy fabric where a in the pic I have a very light BDU top on. Boba's vest aslo appears to have some light padding which mine does not, so these may be a factor I'll have to consider. I should be getting my Boba flight suit/vest in the next month or 2 so I may re-attack the sizing issue again then. I was also given the green light by the wife to get the GMH, and turning which ever helmet I don't use in my build as a display piece, so I won't be getting rid of any helmets. Thanks again guys
