    well...lets see have u tried going to www.tk409.com/fett.html . there you can find measurements for the mystery helmet. it's under helmet in measurements. thats what i used and so far so good, try that, if it doesn't help i'll try to think of something else...well best of luck

    well. right now im using sintra. and im getting the right shape from my piont. its seems a batting helmet would work, mine was a one size fit all helmet. i think that should help (im not done yet. i'll be sure to show you pics when i get it finishd) when you buy a helmet be sure to take of the visor and the ear pieces. they can get in the way. allthough i think thats really a no brainer. well give more questions and i'll see if i have anwsers.
