    Dan,

    Drop me an email and I will get you on the list to get a helmet. I do not take money until I am ready to ship you a helmet.

    Thanks,
    Asok

    I'm paying for my cold cast helmet tomorrow and very excited! I've used the cold casting process on some of my fine arts sculptures when I didn't feel like paying the foundry $600 min for hot cast solid bronze. Looked and felt like the real thing and even added patina.

    My question is about painting over it as I've never done so. Not sure if I'm doing a topical or reverse layer paint job. If were to do a topical paint and cover up cold cast aluminium layer completely with paint, does anyone notice if helmet still has that metal feel? I think touching a fett helmet that feels like cold metal is just really neat!

    After talking wih asok about it I agree that it's just cool to cast it this way. More like it would be in real life. Either way I'm stoked to grab the awesome FP kit and the cold cast is just a cool bonus.

    I've been a star wars collector since the 90s and building projects just as long but I'm finally just around to this one so I'm stoked! It's for ddisplay so I plan to do rf lights. Also, I want to sculpt interior details like people have done based off riddell helmets. Just for personal use and cast in a self skinning foam and paint. Just a fun show off feature since I'm a sculptor anyway. Finally it will live in my ikea case with plaque. Getting ahead of myself though as I have months of tedious work when my kids go down for nap.

    Makes me stoked to see how much everyone loves their helmets though!

    Out of curiosity, does anyone have a pic of one of these next to the MR bucket that came out? I'm just trying to see the difference in size between these two because I had one of his Jango helmets and that one looked a little smaller when displayed right next to the MR one so I was hoping these were a little closer in size to them.

    Just got my bucket in today. Fast shipping, AMAZING customer service, and the product is flawless!

    I picked up the Boba helmet thinking I was going to use it to build my first custom mando. But after looking at the helmet for about an hour I really don't think I can bring myself to fill in the dent. This thing isn't just a helmet it's a work of art.

    If you're thinking about getting one of these stop thinking and just hit that paypal button. It's well worth it!

    Pros: you don't need to prime or paint silver.
    Cons: the only con I can think of with these buckets is the lack of damage (other than the dent of course). I mean, it is the FP budget bucket so I definitely understand. Otherwise these buckets are definitely the way to go unless you want to wait for asok to put out his new FP casts.

    PM sent! I had to jump on this. Been looking for a good kit to try my hand at painting, this one looks like the way to go.

    You can't go wrong with an Asok CC lid. Great guy to buy from and the lid is top notch.

    this may be answered somewhere, but is the RF stalk hollow to allow for running LEDs?

    I have a Salamander king ESB remote set up I would want to use.

    Asok uses solid aluminum stalks. There are a few people that make light kits that may fit. Hyperdyne labs is one.

    Nevermind the Salamander king LEDs are self contained no need for a hollow RF, I missed that on my first read through of his sale thread :P

    Great comparison shot, Verbal. The correct visor makes all the difference, it looks so much more menacing!
