    Just to stress again that these pics of the helmet are from the W.I.P. and are extremely rough. Keep an eye out for updated pics.

    Also, it is clear how potentially wonderful they will be from these in progress pics. Anyone, anyone?

    Do you have a photo of the original concept helmet that this is meant to replicate?

    Jordy, should I just start signing over my paychecks? It might make things a bit easier

    There are two paintings that he did for ESB. They appear in the "Art of Star Wars" ESB book at the Bespin section. I'll try and post unless Bigaboy can. HINT, HINT.

    By the way, The 48th Ronin is the pre-iminent white Fett we have been wondering about...he e-mailed me and he has been on leave from being a white Fett. He has great knowledge and is a great costumer. Those pics were from 7 years ago. Wow! Let's all give this "newbie" <- HAHAHAHA a welcome...back!

    Glad to have found you!

    Cal196, you cut to the bone! But truth hurts sometimes. sniff, sniff. I actually had his pics in my resource folder of images on my computer and he was a contributing factor (and also meeting Ralph McQuarrie in Person) in my goal to make my White Mando. Ronin e-mailed me, a very nice fellow. We must encourage him to "get back into the scene."

    Re: Interest Thread: MS McQuarrie Fett Helmet

    Hey guys!

    Ya know, I've been aware of TDH's existence, but I never really stuck my head in here much, until a few days ago - as I told John, as far as the whole costuming thing goes, I've kinda' moved on... you know - got interested in other things and went in a different direction...

    Anyway, here I am again - the timing couldn't have been more fortuitous... and bizarre. I actually followed a link from another forum to the thread on Marrow Sun's new Fett helmet. I poked around a little and saw this thread, and of course seeing McQuarrie's name really piqued my curiosity (since his work is what inspired me to do my costume, obviously). I've always thought it would be cool to do a helmet exactly like the pre-production painting, so this is very exciting.

    So has Marrow Sun ever tried his hand at a Stormtrooper helmet? I've always wanted a McQuarrie pre-production Stormtrooper too!

    Hey 48th Ronin, you'll need a lightsaber and shield to go with that helmet!

    Re: Interest Thread: MS McQuarrie Fett Helmet

    Ooo! Speaking of lightsabers, ya know what would be REALLY cool... a McQuarrie pre-production Vader helmet!

    Re: Interest Thread: MS McQuarrie Fett Helmet

    Even cooler... a white helmet with a red inverted triangle just above the eye slit, resting nicely on your head, my head, GEO's head, anyone else who wants to be a part of this' movement's ...head(s).
