    Nov 10, 2008, 2:23 PM - A good pice for a MR fett Helmet? #1

    so there's an online retailer with a sale on MR Fett helmets. The Limited edition ESB for $375 (was $449) or the Signature edition for $399 (was $549)

    I never paid much attention to these when they came out, I figured I had the skills to do my Own. I'd get either a sgt Fang or a Bobamaker and paint it myself, but At $375, if it was worth it, It'd save me the problem of painting, getting a visor and a light up stalk. And $400 for the SE, Bullochs Autograph is worth it. But I did want your opinions.

    I think you'd get more satisfaction knowing you did your own bucket. Follow the helpful painting tutorials here and you'll be suprised of the end result. Remember, you still have to tweak the visor on the MR's.

    good luck.

    The visor has a pinch at the bottom and makes it look off. I have the MR helmet and I would be happier with a custom bucket.

    So I'd be better off getting a Bobamaker and finishing it myself?

    Not me. I really like my MR. As soon as I get around to fixing the pinch, I'm gonna be very happy with it!!!! Might repaint it, but its not bad at all the way it is!!!

    the pinch isn't hard to fix... there are links in the wiki to describe the process. it's a very nice helmet for the money.

    I paid 350 shipped for my MR...I thought it was a fair enough price considering what they originally went for.

    I'd love to fix it but I cant stand the thought of hacking it up. Also, no matter how easy it is I dont think I would be able to do it. I have no handy prop skills at all.

    Well, I ain't gonna lie to ya...I'm extremely nervous about altering mine as well!!!! I've had it for a month now & I haven't quite built up the courage to do anything...but i will eventually...I hope!!!! Somehow, it is definately easier to start working/hacking on a helmet in Kit form. So I'm with you on that DarthB!!
