    Let me tell you one thing though, you don't become rich painting Fett helmets, faaaaaaar to many hours involved. I think many here will agree.

    Agreed here as well. I've seen somebody post that it took 50 hours to paint a helmet. Now take the price a person charges, subtract out the cost of paint and materials, and divide the remaining cost by the number of hours ... not a multi-million dollar result.

    One thing about getting someone else to paint your helmet is you dont point out every single flaw that a helmet you did yourself would result in.

    Plus how many hours it would take to attempt to fix it.

    I sold my ROTJ painted MSH for $675 shipped.

    I put a price on it I figured would be fair for what I had into it and what I felt it was worth, I wasn't going to sell it for less.

    All prices give or take, $250 for the helmet, $20 for visor, $30 for painting supplies, $20 for metal stalk, $15 shipping, that puts it at around $340 for my time painting it.

    I may have gotten more for it, but it would have taken longer to sell it to find a serious buyer.
