    I'm sure this is a standard Rubies helmet, made from Don Post's old molds. It's basically a beginner helmet for a Boba on a budget. Do a search in the "helmet" section because I'm sure there's a ton of info and posts on this helmet.

    Strange, that picture is of a Don Post?! I hate it when websites and auctions post false images

    What I believe you will see from most retail stores online is a STOCK image of a '95 or '96 DP helmet. If you'll notice, most sites selling the standard Fett helmet use the same few stock images.

    The problem is that the '95-'96 helmet hasn't been made in like 8-9 years. And while the retailers stock has been updated, i.e. either '97 DP helmets or Rubies Fett helmets, they have not updated their website images.

    While I wouldn't it's impossible that some stores have an old stock of DP '95-'96 helmets, I'd say the chances are very slim.

    Here's the link
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ory=37888&rd=1

    If the crack concerns you;
    It runs along the edge of the "visor",but since the "visor" is being replaced It doesn't matter.

    Awesome deal. Yes you have to do work on your helmet anyway so getting a slightly damaged auction can save you loads of money.
