    Fett Helmet History

    Well, here it is. Please note that this info is not written in stone. It is all the info we have researched and compiled TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE. If you have extra info or see something that needs to be corrected/clarified, PLEASE let me know.

    The original is far too large to post, so here is a link.

    Thank you so much. This will make everything a lot simpler.
    I realize that's a lot of work but I'm sure everyone will be very thankful.

    Cool, I have always read bits and pieces of history, but never took the time to put the pieces together to become educated. This is awesome!

    Oh, that's just phenomenal!! That's definitely getting saved as one of the most useful Fett resources out there.
    Thanks for working that up!

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    You know what I have never understood. I hear it called 'cat eyes' all the time on the helmet. And to me, its not 'cat eyes' its 'eagle eyes'

    The eyes are eagle shaped, and with the red on the helmet, looks exactly like a beak.

    Just thought id throw that out there

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    I really want a t-shirt with all of this info on it.
    Maybe an official TDH shirt with this chart on the back.

    I am RIGHT WITH YOU! I have always thought that the "Eyes" version of the helmet really looks like a screaming eagle or falcon.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Hahaha... Maybe someday we could do a small poster run... something like an 18 X 24! There is more info I would like to get first and I'd really have to go back and try to get really good shots of each helmet.

    Also, I know I probably sound like a broken record, but I just want to make sure that no one thinks I did all this research. This sheet is a compilation of the work of dozens of Fett fans and friends of TDH! I am afraid to start thanking people for fear of missing someone but I would like to acknowledge Tyler Durdern as I can't tell you how many nights he and I have sat up for hours and hours, with the phone in one hand, a mouse in the other (sometimes swapping out for a scotch or bourbon) and just bouncing ideas off each other, as we scoured 1000s of images trying to find connections.

    Art, that is awesome! Thanks for taking the time to do this! Thanks also to everyone who has contributed hours and hours and hours of time scouring over pictures, casts, plugs and talking to people "who were there."

    I agree that this would make a great poster! A t-shirt would be cool too.

    I am afraid it would be so small on a shirt you wouldn't really be able to see anything clearly or read the text.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    What if you take the text out and just leave the images of the helmets and the arrows?
    TDH members would get it.
    Or maybe just the names of the helmets.

    I wonder that quite a bit... Did it become the ESB or PP3? Those are the only helmets it could have become because we know that it existed at the same time as the RotJ, Sandy, and PP2. If it did become the ESB or PP3, then there is another helmet out there that we don't know about and haven't seen. It it didn't (and I suspect it didn't and is still the "ears" helmet to this day), I really wonder where it is. The sad truth is, we just have no clue.
