    Aug 13, 2013, 7:19 PM - Looking to buy helmet, but which one? #1

    Well I once said I would never get into Star Wars props because of the overwhelming amount, not to mention some of the overwhelming prices. However I find myself wanting a Boba Fett helmet. I didn't realize the number of different ones available until I started reading this forum. What are my options for a painted/finished helmet and the approximate costs? It will be for display but I'm sure I would like to put it on and wear it ever some often. How about the quality of the different ones? Sorry for all the questions but I am new to these props, but I am smart enough to know the right place to ask.

    For a good helmet there are a few options, and money wise, $500 is a good starting point. That would get you an Asok lid and paint job from one of the great painter on this forum. You can pay more for lids from FP and BM (fettpride and bobamaker), and these would need painted as well. You can pick up an MR fett ld that is already painted, but for what you would pay for one of those, you could get a more accurate helmet from the people I mentioned earlier.
    Good hunting and to be sure you get exactly what you are looking for, do lots of research on this forum.

    How do these helmets compare to the Master Replica version?

    I thinm the asok budget cold cast is excellent value for money. To my understanding it's from a cast of the MR prototype but without the visor pinch.

    the shape is better on all of those helmets than the master replica, and the accuracy of the paint job just depends on the painter. though most people offering to paint boba helmets will do a better job than master replicas.
