    May 16, 2005, 3:50 PM - DP95 vs Bobamaker helmet #1

    I've recently had hold of a bobamaker helmet (very impressive) but not sure about the size. I cant be certain as I didnt have my lid with me but it didnt seem much bigger than my DP95!
    Do any bobamaker helmet owners (or the man himself ) have a comparison pic for size refrence?
    Cheers

    I'd like to see that also and maybe throw in a MS bucket for good measure.

    id like to see that aswell... since I also requested it in a post a while ago, someone told me that the difference in an MS helmet and a DP are immense.

    Dont know about the BobaMaker helmet. All I can say is that hes knees are freakin' awesome, and what I got was exactly like what you see in the pics on the site, so I assume that goes for the helmet aswell.

    nice guy to work with!

    Measured my 95... compared them to Boba Maker's marvelous helmet and there does not seem to be a a great deal of difference .. which I think we all know cannot be right as you can tell just by looking at the two that Boba Maker's is bigger ... I'm going to try a different measuring tape .. this one is a bit dodgy !!!

    I, too, was under the impression that Bobamaker helmets were among the largest - Since my main reason for intending to buy one is that my current bucket's a tad too small for me...
    So comparison pics would be greatly appreciated!

    This is in no way a slam to Bobamaker, but if his helmet is a pure sculpt it can't be movie accurate, as it no linneage to a real helmet.

    Sorry, but I don't claim on my website that my helmet is "movie accurate", I sculpted it and it has NO lineage to an original. I've been down this road before... please let's get facts right before posting here, thanks!

    OK guys, I don't have a DP Deluxe helmet so I can't show a side by side shot I'm afraid, so I've attached a pic with some of the measurements of my sculpt (give or take a few mm). If anyone has a DP Deluxe that they can show with measurements that would be awesome.

    I was always lead to believe that the main difference between a MS Helmet and DP Deluxe was the flare. I just visited Chris's marvelous site to view the comparrison pics, see what you think.

    The original poster was asking about the difference between a DP95 and a Bobamaker though - Not the DP Deluxe.
    I've seen the standard DP helmets, and they're awful IMHO.
    Which is why I was confused at this thread, since I've always been led to believe that your buckets are among the bext one can buy, BM.
    And the biggest...

    Sorry Bobamaker I meant to say movie "sized" not "Accurate",apologies for any misunderstanding there and if it's any consolation I will be buying one of your helmets in the near future,personally I like the way you have sculpted it with all the kinks in,that's what won it for me
  14. May 18, 2005, 3:59 PM - Re: DP95 vs Bobamaker helmet #14

    Hmm...
    That's odd.
    My Judge Dweddz buvket ( Based, I believe, on a Jango original ) is 260mm from back to front, and 240 from ear to ear.
    So the one I currently have is BIGGER than a Bobamaker!



    Bobamaker - How does yours compare, then, to the other helmets available?

    This is odd, as I don't think I've got a particularly big head - Yet when I wear my current bucket ( Visorless right now ), my nose actually protrudes through the gap between mandibles...
  15. May 18, 2005, 4:34 PM - Re: DP95 vs Bobamaker helmet #15

    Bobamaker...I don't care if your bucket is movie accurate or not, It still ROCKS!!(The Armor does too!!)

    I believe that the Jango helmet is quite different with it's proportions than Boba's, so if you have one that has roots to an original Jango then it isn't really going to help me to resolve this DP95 and my helmet issue.

    I had a DP 96 for a while and I'm positive that it was considerably smaller than my sculpt, because it barely covered my chin (not that I have a big chin )

    We really need someone to publish the size of a DP95. In the meantime I will re-measure mine carefully and also measure my MS1, let's see how they compare, these are the only helmets I have in my posession at the moment. I'll show the results tomorrow.

    Is JudgeDweddz still around? Maybe he could chip in here and confirm the origins of the bucket I bought from Prymer via him

    I've just measured my BM Helmet again but this time using the outside edges instead of the inner and it measures 258 x 242. There's no way a DP95 is this large.

    Am I correct in assuming that the measurements you took of your Judge Dweddz Bucket were the outer edges?
  20. May 19, 2005, 1:27 PM - Re: DP95 vs Bobamaker helmet #20

    Nope. Inner, dude!
    2 secs, I'll get a photo.

    My don post 95 is exactly 241 back to front, and 236 from side to side. My mystery Helmet is 261X245

    All measurments takin from outside rim
  22. May 19, 2005, 1:47 PM - Re: DP95 vs Bobamaker helmet #22

    Kinda hard to measure accurately with no visor in yet, but this helmet's 230mm ear-to-ear ( Sorry, typo earlier, I said 24 by mistake and didn't notice! ) and about 260mm back-to-front - Maybe a few mm short.

    That's measuring from the inside.

    So thats a difference of 7mil and 15 mil respectfully,this size anomaly could be to do with how flared the helmets are maybe,all the same BM's helmets look right and that counts for a lot....

    I measured my Rubies Jango bucket, the BM is basicly more flared, other then that, it's almost the same with a difference of 3 to 5 mm at certain points.


    hmz... sorry Boba Maker, but I don't think I'll be buying your helmet kit then, since this one is a bit to small (im 1m87cm long, so I ot a pretty good form for Boba, but the DP en Rubies helmets look a bit small in comparisson to my body lenth.) I probably will buy your range finder, ear-cap an visor somewhere in the future, thnx for your assistance!

    again, your sculpt looks awesome, but just not what I need.
