I'm working on a modified (chick) Boba outfit and am looking for a bucket. Don't want to spend a fortune, but I also don't know if I'll have the time or equipment to do a scratch build. My head is smaller than Bobas, I'm sure, so I'm gonna need a bucket on the smaller end, or lots of padding!
I'm thinking about an off-cast kit from one of theDH members, but an alternative in a similar price range would be a DP 1997 helmet.
Is the DP helmet small-ish? The ones I've been looking at could all do with a paint job and some proper weathering, but as a base, how decent would it be?
There's also a Rubies out there for $70. I hear it's a smaller helmet and good for a 'starter' and smaller head, but it looks... kind of... not good. I don't mind the narrowness, but the profile looks weird to me. Of course it would get a good sanding, repaint, weathering, and other mods.
