I'm wondering if some of you can impart some words of wisdom with regards to some Fett items that I've been offered in a trade for some non Star Wars related props. By the way, the trade doesn't involve anyone here, just someone local who got it from someone else.
Anyway, all sounded good until I got the box of bits to have a look at. I'd already been given the jet pack and that was less than impressive, being a vacformed job that had been put together quite badly and was wafer thin in places.The paint job sucked but that can be sorted.
Anyway, on looking at the stuff on offer it was a bit of a nightmare, and seeing as I'm anything but a Fett expert I was wondering if some of you would be kind enough to give your opinions on some of this. Unfortunately my camera batteries have died, so i only managed to snap the helmet and 1 shot of the gauntlets, but will post some more tomorrow.
Wait until you see the shots of the belt and the cape........nasty
My thoughts are that this lot isn't worth trading for what I'm offering....
1) The helmet - I'm not sure what it was cast from, it is small , I have a size 57 / 7 1/4 sized head and can just get into it, but my nose would almost touch the visor. It has been cast from one that had all the damage and texcture of the peeling/flaking/worn paint all over it. Pretty crap casting as it is, and slightly warped at the back. My initial impression was that it's cast from a standard Don Post vinyl one, although I had one of those a few years back and dont remember the bits on the sides ( below the entenna ) being detachable..........any ideas? I'm aware that the top cover for the antenna is missing - no idea where that is.....
Here's the picture of the gauntlets. My initial thought was that they looked small, the flamethrower is missing, the keypad has been cut short to make it fit and the darts are positioned in the wrong place.
