    Feb 14, 2006, 9:45 PM - MR Fett helmet #1

    We are starting this thread again as the last thread got out of hand.

    Once again, the code of conduct:

    RESPECT

    Treat others as you would like to be treated. Respect fellow members and their opinions. Respect must be extended to each and every member, the administrative staff included.


    This applies to major companies as well as individuals. If you do not care for the MR helmet or their production efforts, it is fine to voice your opinion but do not turn this into a bash-fest.

    I agree the shape looks very good....however the paint job does not look very impressive at this point. I hear it is only a mock up and not the "paint master"

    do you think the paint master will be a improvement?????

    I personally dont think they will be able to mass produce these and do a good job!!

    somebody needs to post the pic of the helmet.

    I don't understand why everyone is blowing this whole thing out of proportion?! How can you begin to bash something that has yet to be finished. Nothing MR or anyone else puts out will meet every fan/collectors desires. So why not wait for it to come out fully finished before you put the screws to it.
    Just my 2 cents.

    It's a step in the right direction and it might be hard to believe but NOT every fan and Collector belongs to TDH. Only us hardcore freeks who have nothing beter to do than scrutinize Fett to death. Its true, its true... there are people out there who have never heard of TDH.... ..Crazy huh?!

    I think it's a beautiful helmet, and I can't understand how you people can bash it.

    Why do we tear things like the MR Fett apart, two reasons... becase we CAN and becase its entertaining to do so! Thats my 2 Cents.

    I agree, Bashing is defiantly not the way to go.....and I think it's a step in the right direction too.
    Based on the last thread the "Paint Master" hasn't even been completed.....or maybe it has but either way it will/should be better than the Mock-up.

    for those of you who missed this thread before it was shut down....

    several senior members talked about some very interesting things......

    I think the word "TEMPLATES" was very interesting

    heh. holy disappearing posts batman! i'm glad i get email notifications of posts... i can at least piece it back together

    anyway... to restate my thoughts on it. i think we go a bit further than most fans with our love of things fett. the average star wars fan probably doesn't even realize that the ESB and RotJ bobas are different. or that the special edition scenes are different, etc...

    from looking at what products MR offers, i'm guessing their target audience is middle aged guys with a fair bit of $$ to blow. and i'd also bet that those people would be none too pleased if they got a warped helmet with a drooping brow and paint that was flaking off of it.

    when i had my first fett helmet at work, my coworkers all thought it looked like a piece of junk

    i suspect they will be somewhere between idealized and accurate, carefully aimed at their average customer.

    Also since it was erased, here's the clarification that the paintjob is based on a hero helmet, otherwise known as the Prepro 3 by us TDH geeks, and not the ESB hero seen in the films and in the exhibits. So we shouldn't expect it to match the photos we've all been studying for our ESB helmets.

    Hah, I know what you mean, it's hard to get people to "appreciate" our hard work at weathering becuase it does make our work look old and battered.
