    look at this and try not to laugh

    http://www.80stees.com/products/Boba...ble-Helmet.asp
    "This Star Wars collectable is a replica of Boba Fett's helmet cast from the original Lucas Film molds. Fett's Mandalorian helmet is recreated in rigid plastic, with a smoked viewplate and moveable antenna." the paint job shows that these are made on a convayer belt, with cheap workers,your guys' helmets are %110 better,and i would well spend money on some of these scratch builds, over this one. i guess i just wanted to post this to give everybody on this beautiful site a pat on the back. you guys are some of the most resourcefull geeks, ive ever met. And without your help none of my many boba pieces would be either complete or for that matter started. so in other words "thanks" much appreciated slimguy379

    sorry can't help but laugh.

    the shape's all wrong, no way is it cast from original moulds.
    Isn't that false advertising?

    Not DP 95 - that's actually a much nicer helmet. Everyone is pretty familiar with this Rubies garbage, but what is funny is that the damage around the mandible on this one looks like it was applied with a rubber stamp.

    "Cast from the original mold" somehow I highly doubt it.

    Its says from Lucas Film molds, doesnt say movie molds. The F being capitalized means they are referring to the company and not the movie

    Gotta learn to read like a lawyer when you buy stuff online.

    Man, I'm giving up painting. I could never hope to achieve that kind of perfection.

    *Sigh* Anyone have any ideas for a new hobby?

    Hmmm...Maybe they meant it was cast from something found on an old loaf of bread in the Skywalker Ranch Cafeteria.

    The authentic weathering was done by throwing it down a flight of freshly painted silver stairs.

    It looks like someone left it in a trunk of a car on a really hot day! What's really bad about it is that they claim it's from a screen used helmet.
