    That is actually a MF (Malone Fett) helmet with Single Seat's metal ears made available only for close friends.

    Maybe I need a history lesson on helmet lineages but why exactly would this be "more accurate" than a GMH? Is he just referring to the physical damage or is he just employing a sales pitch?

    Boba Fett Costume Resource - First Sons Boba Fett Preproduction #2 Helmet Progeny see the history lesson here...this helmet IS technically more accurate to the ESB helmet not having the Prepro damage, but its linage is to the same helmet as the GMH...NOT the ESB helmet. So that has been added by someone else. Which can be done with a GMH or any helmet for that matter.

    urgh.... that's way too expensive even if it does have metal ears and everything... too rich for my blood. At First I did think it was the GMH helmet with Mojo's ears or something but thanks for the clarification guys (I still got a lot to learn about fett stuff :P).

    Is anyone actually considering buying it? Seems overpriced in my opinion.

    I'm pretty ignorant about helmets still but I think this one looks great. It also looks very expensive. Why would Gino choose to sell this now?

    The wave in the brow is said to be from repairing damage from an unfortunate drop. So it would make sense that it wouldn't have the wavy brow. I tend to like it without as that brow is way too easy to over-exaggerate.

    Ah, okay. I kinda suspected as such. It's a great looking helmet!

    I have seen this helmet in person and i can vouch that it is nice... 1300 nice? When I think of 1300 bucks I think of a real Webley and Scott mk1... If i had that type of money to spend on a costume i would get the gun IMHO... sorry GINO

    If I had the money I'd buy it...but on the condition that I can also get Joe Johnston to paint it
