    Identify this bucket

    This is on ebay. The seller refers to it only as a "movie accurate full size boba fett helmet". Looks like an MSH to me. Can anyone positively ID it?

    I'm 99%sure it's a MSH1.
    Mine looked just like that before i started to work on it.

    Based off of the way the Dent looks in the pic, I would have to agree with it being an MSH. The right ear is sculpted to hold the 3 part RF Ear as well so I would bet money on MSH.

    Hmm... Kinda looks like one of the new helmets that have been created recently. But I'll leave it to the experts to identify it/claim it. In any case, someone took a shot at trimming it and decided it wasn't worth it or they weren't up to it!

    That person probably doesn't own a Dremel or rotary tool, so they just drilled holes to pop the visor out.

    Re: Identify this bucket

    It's a VERY nice bucket. Very few were ever made, and the few that are floating around out there are very hard to come by. Unlike the "mystery" helmets, the MSH has no direct lineage to the screen used buckets, it is an original sculpt... but it is still a very covetted piece of many collectors' collections. The reason why I posted this asking for a positive ID is because if it is an actual MSH, I'm obviously going to consider bidding on it.

    If Natty says it's MSH, then it's definitely legit. He would know. Thanks guys for giving a positive ID on it. Now I just have to decide how much I can afford to bid, and hope DV1 doesn't outbid me.

    OMG! I showed my newB!!! Thanks for the clarification. I'm still learning about all this stuff. The search really helps one come up to speed but as with most things, there really is no substitution for experience!

    Re: Identify this bucket

    That's cool, congrats. I wanted to bid on it, but I've spent way too much money on costume parts lately. Post some pics when you have it painted up.

    Re: Identify this bucket

    Ok i will.
    I think it'll take me quite a bit of time, i've only painted one DP95 before so i'm kind of unexperienced.
    I wouldn't want to mess up a MSH would i.
    Thanks.
