This thread is soley to guage interest in possibly making a few Boba/Jango helmets in cast alluminum. I have taken a long break form these and my resources have changed therefore I need to see if it is worth it to even consider making several of these.
Many of you already know about my helmet but for those who don't it is my own sculpt which is very close to movie size. Weight is approx. 5lbs. I wear mine as my standard jango costuming helmet. I walked over 6 miles in it as part of the Rose Parade so any concerns about weight I mearly shrug off.
Okay - so since this just for interest I am not making any promises. I would expect that any finished product would be complete 6 months from project launch (maybe less...maybe more) Only deposits would be required. Final costs would be determined upon current metal prices (I have not priced these in years!) Figure around $600. Comes with helmet (roughly finished) solid stalk and resin rangefinder. Although in all honesty I would upgrade the stalk and rangefinder with one of hte fine ones available on the boards)
Here is a picture to refresh memmories or entice newbies.
If you have one of these helmets or are familiar with it please do not hesitate to respond in this thread.
