    Hello!

    So I bought this "Rubies" Helmet thinking it was the Target one, it's not. I just disassembled it and it's held on by glue Anyone encounter a helmet held together by glue? I'll post pictures in a bit to show what I mean.

    Here are some pictures to show you what I mean.. It's all one piece glues to hard foam. Very thin and very soft.

    I can't disassemble it any farther than without the ears, it would just fall apart. Any suggestions? The T visor is connected to the helmet as well as a singular piece, I'll have to exact -o knife it if I'm going to remove it. Should I just re-glue this and call it a wash?

    Tried to ask opinions and get nothing. Kind of disappointed.

    People are generally wary of giving advice for things they don't know too much about

    I'm no expert, but that is neither the target or the Don post. Looks like a cheap vacuum formed Halloween helmet, or possibly an overseas knock off. Don't know what else to tell you.

    I believe that's the Rubies vinyl helmet that they have offered for years. I don't think there is much you can really do with it. As I recall they don't hold shape long term and can be very fragile.

    If you glue it back you may want to do a small test in an inconspicuous area (ie inside the helmet) to make sure it doesn't react badly with the material.

    Ok that's what I was waiting for. I'll just re-glue and call it a day.

    You might be able to do a practice paint job on it and flip it on eBay. Just an idea that might help recoup the cost of it.
