    Sep 16, 2010, 11:09 AM - Anyone know what helmet this is? #1

    Hey fellas and lasses! I'm new to the Fett building community, and first of all, this stuff on here is fantastic. I'm working my butt off to get a costume ready for halloween. I've wanted to do it for some time, and now I have the funds/drive to do so.

    I found this helmet on Amazon, and there's no description.

    Amazon.com: Jango Fett Helmet: Toys & Games

    It's Jango, but I'd make it a Boba.

    Available to me are some Don Post 95s at a costume shop nearby which I'm considering. I love the idea of building your own, however. So if you could point me in the right direction of some threads for Don Post, that'd be great. Also, the jet pack is pretty daunting. I'm in the midst of sewing the jumpsuit now.

    Thanks for everything you folks do to give newbies like me inspiration!

    Rubie's Jango one piece. For the price, it's garbage. For just a little more, you can get a quality bucket from Asok or M-DSB.

    what they said.

    the rubies one piece is small and warps if you look at it funny. no need to spend $80 on that when $100 will get you a quality fan made.

    Funny is the 2 piece at $30 is far superior, especially after a little bondo to the dome and glassing the inside.

    Actually,I have a rubies 1-piece,and its not too bad. Although,I would do a search for Jango Fett mask. And heres why;some sellers do not know what there really selling.
    I found one of those on Amazon.com under the name of,mask,its strange,but true. Official Costumes,is one of the sellers. The price is only $29.99+S&H.
    I'm not saying yes too the little pvc masks. But you'll see the helmet that you saw.(hint:look for the top one with the reversed picture.)

    Definitely a Rubies.

    They can be good or bad, depending on what you're looking for. They tend to be small and very flimsy, but they do exhibit all the necessary details.

    In my opinon; the helmet makes the costume, so it's best not to skimp on such an important costume piece. But if you just want a nice static piece that looks cool on your desk, a rubies will serve you well.
