    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.
    AHH HA!!!..I have always thought that.... good stuff.

    Awesome work on the Fett family tree Art! Maybe I can send the high res file to my brother (501st member) in Illinois who works as a printer and he can make a few sample posters for us to review.

    Thanks a lot man. I may now be doing a PP3 instead of the PP2, since it's basically the same thing, with the ESB style paint job on the bucket. AWESOME!!

    Fact of the matter is, the PP3 is the nicer of the two. I don't know if that is because the ESB took so much damage from handling (and now apparently) being recast, or what, but the PP3 is immaculate and probably one of the BEST preserved helmets.

    I am really hoping with a little more info and some comparisons, we can change where your helmet lies and can erase those question marks. At the moment, I tend to think it is most likely a casting of a stunt, but there is also the distint possibility that it is from the same molds as the stunts. Either way, super exciting stuff as we had never really even looked into the history of the stunts until your helmet came along. You made it possible for us to finally nail that whole section of the "family tree" down!

    I feel the same. Also thanks for putting this together folks.

    Quote:

    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 couldn't agree more Lee....considering the early art for the left shoulder bell clearly depicted a bird skull, I would think that the helmet also was intended along those lines of a "bird of prey"........

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    What a neat read

    To think it all started from 6 ,20+ years ago and how many thousands of helmets are out there.
    As anyone done research on the history of Jangos helmet and design????
    Was there any different "looks"/color scheme for his armor?
    Thank you again for all the hard work in putting this history together.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Wow! Thats so cool! I really enjoyed reading that and seeing how the helms changed and what not. Thanks a lot guys for putting that together, that really helps me out! Does anyone know why some versions are wider than others???

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Hey Art,

    The "Ye Olde Prop Rumor Mill" urban legend is that the Jango bucket was cast/scanned from a Boba Helmet in the archives.

    If true, where would the Jango helmet fit in the helmet lineage? Any leads on which helmet spawned it?

    Thanks,
    OSK

    It is not true. I recently interviewed the person who sculpted the Jango helmet. They did reference a real helmet but he asserts that there was no casting at all involved which would put the Jango helmet completely outside of the Boba line. I am working on a second set of interview questions and plan to post the complete q & a when we are done.

    No...just saying I have a screen cast Jango helmet...Banzai has his helmet...so yesterday we did some comparison photos. Just waiting for Banzai to post them...

    It was just funny OSK asked that because Banzai had planned to post them in this thread today.

    VERY cool! Looking forward to seeing them! Perhaps when I come out in a month or so we can compare yours to Banzai's to the PP2. Should make for some great history!

    Looks like he posted them in his helmet thread. Here is the link to the album though where they are posted: http://picasaweb.google.com/Banzai88...ey=RrLTG1tC-Ag

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    This looks awesome.... but, am I the only person who can't read it? I even tried saving it and increasing the size in my picture viewer. I can make out some of the spots with little text, but the areas with more text are just a blur. I don't think it's my monitor either, because we have a fairly new and fairly nice one here. Great job though. At least I can follow the pictures and the arrows.
