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.
An absolutely STUNNING lineage & map of Fett helmet history Braks!!! Thank you so much for posting this up....hard to believe all this from one thread on the RPF so many years ago.
Again, thanks bud:thumbup
Now this finally clears up a whole lot of mis-understanding for me. thanks
Yes--Art--thanks for compiling this into an easy to follow graphic. Very interesting history.
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 feel the same. Also thanks for putting this together folks.
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
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"........
Ditto on the bird of prey stuff!!!!
Yeah, that history guide is really friggin cool!!!!! Thanx everybody that contributed, and thanx Braks for posting it!!
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.
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???
"we are not worthy, we are not worthy!"
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?
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
That's awsome!!! Thank's BB Totally interesting
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.
