    MR helmet size?

    Hello, Im new to the forum but been a lurker for many moons! The question I have is: How big was the actor that played the fett man?
    I just purchased the MR se helm off ebay cause Im trying to get my costume ready for halloween and it seems huge on me. Im afraid I wont be able to be my fav Star Wars charactor now. Im 5'10 and 160Lbs. My shoulders are 18 inches across.
    Can I do this with out looking like a bobble head? Any info, help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jereme.

    Thanks, Im hoping once I get it all together it will look more symmetrical. 6'2 would be the better of our two sizes I imagine though. Is there any fett's out there that have this helm and are my size? Did you use another liner to sit over the MR one?

    You should be good to go. The helmet will look a little big until you combine it it with the rest of the gear. I have a MR helmet and another fiberglass bucket I troop in. My 2nd bucket is about the same size exactly as my MR bucket except it flares out a little more. I am 5 foot 9 inches and 170 pounds. I do not think I look bobbleheaded.

    Im getting very excited. I thought my dream of being fett was close to an end! Now to find ESB painted gauntlets, jet pack and armor.
    Thanks for the advice. what did you use for your liner? Im going to have to think of something to add to the MR bucket to secure to my dome a little more. Somthing that wont effect or damage the orignal liner. Maybe some foam and duck tape.

    My problem is that the MR helmet is too small on my head I have to remove the liner to wear mine... do the foam and duct tape,
    use the duct tape just to make a foam beanie and not attach it to the helmet ..

    Zoiks, you must have some cranium! The MR bucket makes me look like a bobble head and I have a 7 3/8 hat size...

    I plan to gut a skateboard/baseball helmet's foam inside with industrial adhesive taping to get it right!

    Well, I'm 5 11" and have been using an MSH2, which really makes me look like a bobblehead!!!!! Its a great bucket, but just a tad big for me. I have an MR on the way, & am hoping that it sovles my no-neck problem. If you think the MR is still to big for you, you might wanna look at a 95-96 DP helmet. As others have suggested though, wait until you have the rest of your gear on to make your decision.

    For some reason it never lets me upload photos onto here, but I'm 6'3 and here is a pic with my TF bucket on. It looks a bit bobbly headed on me but like they said, the whole costume makes it look goooooooood.
