    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Gypsyboy, Are you trying to enlarge the picture posted here, or the pic from the link just above the picture? As Brak's said, the original is way too large to be posted here, and he provided a link to the original, and posted a smaller version to tease us all.. Great work you guys! This'll make one FINE ´poster. Although, I hope you don't get mad at me for pointing out this, there is a small typo on the image. Just above the 'Lava' helmet, the description states helemt.. But, still, this work needs no critisizing, it is truly an art to behold..
    Thanks, Ville

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Ok, so if there were originally six helmets, does that meant there was originally 6 sets of armour?????

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    There were six original suits, and I think it is reasonable to assume each suit had a complete set of armor.

    From talking with one of the archivist in charge of the boba suit at C4 she admitted to enough pieces to make 3 complete suits thought there were left over incomplete sets of armor. So I believe this to be true as well. Se described it as a crate full of armor pieces but didn't recall the number of each incomplete set.

    But I would say 2 suits worth in the crate as the prepro armor walked away... since the ESB jet pack is in the archives (also confirmed this with her and another person) I would say one of the incomplete sets could be esb... but that may be wishful thinking. Sadly the JP is in a million peices though.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Guys this is very cool. Thanks to everyone that contributed to the information and the graphic.

    What is known about the original helmet sculpt? Who made it? What happened to it? How many molds were made from the original sculpt? Were each of the six original white helmets pulled from the same mold?

    And to complete the "family tree", would it be bennifficial to show a graphic representation of the sculpt at the top of the page with arrows to each of the white helmets?

    What is known about the original helmet sculpt?
    Not much.

    Who made it?
    Not 100% sure.

    What happened to it?
    Don't know.

    How many molds were made from the original sculpt?
    Based on the info we have, this is most likely the case, especially considering the low number of helmets.

    Were each of the six original white helmets pulled from the same mold?
    Again, we believe this to be the case.

    And to complete the "family tree", would it be bennifficial to show a graphic representation of the sculpt at the top of the page with arrows to each of the white helmets?
    If we had a pic of the original sculpt...

    Maybe just a picture of a lump of clay ?

    Great questions Gator and helpful answers Braks!

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    How about the history behind the Bobamaker helmet line ? I didnt see a wavy brow at all in those shots.. i could have missed it though

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Glad to see this; it's been a long time coming.

    Love the lineage discussion. It's the single most interesting subject regarding Fett.

    I would clarify which Don Post is pictured in the lineage with a disclaimer that the '95 suffered further shrinking. Looks like the helmet off the lifesize display, though I think some of the later Deluxes had the same look to it.

    Great discussion.

    I was always under the impression that the bobamaker helmet was a mysteryhelmet variant like the Marrow Sun or Sgt Fang but I don't think that has ever been confirmed.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    I'm also certain that BobaMaker sculpted the perceived "wave" into the helmet.

    Nice one.

    Thanks for the answers Art.

    While you may not be 100% sure, who is the likely suspect?

    We are actually in talks right now with several people who were involved in the original project, trying to get that nailed down. Trust me, when we do, you will know.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    This really helps to simplify all the terms and differents helmets. Great job !!

    Joe Johnston painted the ''Eyes'' and then this helmet is unaccounted for... could it be that this helmet was repainted as the PP3 ?? They sure look similar to themselves but different from all the others... That would also explain why the ''Eyes'' helmet is nowhere to be found. Any thoughts?

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    sounds like a good theory. That would leave one of the original white helmets unaccounted for though, not shooting down your idea at all though, as it is a very good idea, just something to think about.
