    Yeah it is best to stay away from Ebay items or so I like to call ebay the "devil" it takes your money and gives you poor stuff in return

    I asked the dude straight up if it was a recast. he came back and said plainly .."no".

    I then asked him," If it's a MS1 and you say it's not a recast, how is it you have so many on eBay and have sold a few before also".

    And he came back with this:
    "This helmet is not a don post. my son has one of them aweful looking thing and wanted another so he printed out a pepakura file and folded the helment.
    After that,I glassed it and used that as a base for my scuplt.
    Using chavant nsp clay,it allowed me to mold and produce them.
    Thanks"

    Hmmm

    I've been building my helmet from scratch and I have had SO much difficulty with symmetry and smoothing! And that was using a bike helmet, card, p of p and Car body filler!

    Clay's quite a dense substance, so putting on paper would bend it, unless he reinforced it somehow, well, whatever.

    *Edit* D'oh, unless he reinforced the inside with fiberglass. I'm a muppet!

    Got one not bad but the material will warp if left in the sun

    The side with the range finder is sunk in and looks bad You will have to work on it to look rite

    Would make a good mando helmet with some work or give it to your kids to play with

    I picked up one off of Ebay myself from another seller and I have to agree, stay away from ebay for helmets. This is my first Mando helm and it is no where near movie accurate. It's good for a custom Mando set up and thats about it. the pull was bad and I'm having to do alot of sanding and bondo work just to make it look good.
    Oh well lesson learned, next helm will be researched properly.

    I got a helmet last year and it was very rough.
    These don't look too bad..
