    I've trimmed the helmet now, sanded the seams and filled the dent It's coming alondg nicely. It's a joy to work on this helmet! I also cut the key-slots in the back. Soon i will start with the visor area, the worst part of the process:/..
    I did't take any pics during the process. Did'nt have a camera at hand. I used a dremel, sandpaper and some small files.

    No, the mystery helmet was cast off the original ROTJ helmet when Don Post was in the process of making their Deluxe helmet. Sgt. Fang bought one of these casts not knowing what it was at the time and fixed a few of the problems. It is called the Mystery Helmet because he wasn't sure of its origins. Anyway, Skygunbro makes a DP95 recast.

    Actually, that is not entirely correct. The helmet that was sent to DP was a real Fett helmet, but it was not the original ROTJ helmet.

    Sgt Fang said this though:

    "After a week or so of debating, someone, who's probably forgotten more about SW armor than I'll ever know, posted that he knew what it was, and that my original was one of 10 bootleg copies that were made by Don Post employees while they had an original film used helmet in their possesion for laser scanning."

    Has the story changed since then?

    So it was an original ESB helmet then?

    I would like to see a side by side comparison of the mystery helmet and a reg DP 95 or 96.
    Much thanks,

    I don't think so, because it's smaller than the ESB helmet.

    Here is a DP95 recast (bigger than normal DP95) next to a mystery helmet, courtesy of jeezycreezy:

    Edit: Here is a QUICK comparison I whipped up in photoshop based on jeezycreezy's pics with the DP95 recast on top of the MHK:

    The MHK is a bit bigger than the Delux DP. Its a great helmet easy to work with.

    Yeah but if you give me a MHK, I'll look like a bobblehead
    I think I'm doomed to wear DP's the rest of my life.

    Fett is supposed to look like a bobblehead, that is what he is supposed to look like, in some pics he looks like one.... I said the same thing as you and BraksBuddy told me just what I told you.

    It could have been off a ROTJ stunt helmet, but Sarge did say it was off a screen used helmet. It is one or the other, but it dosn't look like a ESB cast.

    Well, honestly...if you wanna look film accurate...you're supposed to be a bobble-head!

    Fett was definitely a bobble-head on film.
