    Great work guys! It's nice to see this all layed out. Anxiously awaiting even more info.

    So, what is the story of the Banzai helmet then? Which helmet is that in primer stage?

    Best we can tell at this point is that the Banzai is related to the stunts and the ESB hero. I can't say anything beyond that for certain, but even that is a pretty huge deal.

    You are a lucky man (and probably broke with that helmet purchase) Banzai!!!


    Great find, wherever you found it! Thanks for sharing

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Has it ever been determined why the helmet and/or armor was changed between ESB and RotJ? I've always wondered why that was done.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    I don't think anyone knows for sure. There have always been rumors that the ESB suit was stolen, but in the past few years we have come to believe that the PP2 suit was originally slated to be the suit used in ESB and from all appearances it was stolen (at least the helmet and jet pack for sure). Also, there are indications that at least some of the ESB pieces were repainted RotJ colors, but we don't know why.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Can we make another search thread about the armors? Or isn't necessary because we don't know too many things?

    Tyler and I have been working on it, but right now we don't know nearly enough to make anything close to the helmet history layout.

    Does anyone have an updated larger picture of this so I can read what the words are?

    Would love to see this thread as a sticky - perhaps include it in a one stop sticky for those searching for helmet info (I had seen this thread once before and had been searching every now and again since).

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    It was mentioned that the ESB was possibly used as stunt helmet in JEDI. The only shots I can guess where this was possible are the cool leap from the sail barge and the scream-like-a-girl-with-arms-flailing ones. Can anyone clear this up?

    It seems I found the answer to my own question:

    I was looking through my copy of SW CHRONICLES and saw the pic of a stuntman running to apparently jump into the side of the barge. It looks like he has one of the ESB helmets on by the earcap detailing.

    Re: Fett Helmet History

    Without going into a whole huge story of everything, I will try and explain. The mystery helmet was based off one of the pre pro or production helmets, if I am not mistaken(forgive me, it has been forever since I recalled the history). So Sarges mystery is gonna be very close to the accurate size. The rubies helmet, a gawdawful helmet, is in no way an accurate helmet in size. I own quite a few helmets, one being a Don post, a SGT Fang, MLC and a Boba Maker.

    The SGT fang is bigger than the rubies. Rubies is actually a shrunken down helmet. So, if you got a SGT Fang, you got one fine helmet. I don't have any exact measurements, I think TK409s site may have some more info on that.

    Could someone aid you in this venture Art?
    To maybe relieve some of the workload to get these posters off the ground? are there any guys capable of printing on this board?
