    The MSH2 is a bigger helmet than any other I know, not too much, but still bigger. Really accurate too and a piece of Fett history.

    For a long time the MSH2 was considered the best you could get!

    The size of the GMH should be around the same as the MR, just a bit smaller, but not too much.

    You will not be disappointed. They are still my favorite ESB bucket out there. I have two of them. One I got from FP himself. He included a set of FPH ears and they fit the bucket perfectly without any modification. And as far as a purely ESB helmet goes, they cannot be beat. It was sculpted with the ESB 'wonk' to the visor as well as the ('real/imagined' depending on who you talk to) extra flare of the ESB bucket.

    Did the auction refer to the helmet as a MSH2? A lot of eBayer's used to get the acronym mixed up and referred to their helmets as 'Mystery Sized Helmets' confusing the Mystery Helmet with the actual line of Movie Sized Helmets produced by Natty (MSH1) and FettPride (MSH2). Also what color was the helmet in the pics? I believe all of FettPride's MSH2's were cast with white gel coat. But I could be wrong about that.

    He called it a msh2. It looks like a light gray in color inside and out. He said it was movie sized. 11.5" wide and deep. 10.5 tall.

    I just looked it up on ebay before you posted those pics. I doesn't look like a MSH2. The seller either didn't know or misrepresented the helmet.

    Looks like a modified MH mystery helmet or dare I say don post the ears cap is like what don post do on the later helmets , how ever the dent and the dome profile and dent dont match either of these helmets, If you own another helmet put it next to it and get up a pic of the 2 together for size refrence ,
    but ive noticed a few on the bay saying there helmets movie size helmets tough be it not in acronym , so for him/her to say its MSH2 is miss leading but,
    that may be what they were told,
    But if it fits your head and you are happy with it and you didnt pay to much , dont be to disapointed it looks like it could be a resonable helmet

    I think it's a MSH, the first one, not the second.

    Actually, the way the mandibles are shaped, it looks like a MLC. That was another of the 'bigger' buckets being produced a while back.

    Yeah I couldn't remember the name, but it does look like a MLC. His fiberglass work looks like that. I have one of his arena Jango JPs is why I thought that about the fiberglass work.

    Def an MLC. He made two versions. An absolutely HUGE one (the MLC1) and a more accurate (MLC2). Cant tell which one this is. Looks like V1 to me though.

    the 1st mlc is really big. for some that makes it a sought after helmet, since it fits people that can't wear the movie sized ones. you could almost fit a mystery helmet inside of it if i remember right

    As far as it being a good one, well its not a bad one , its just a bit dated, is all it was a good one when it came out.
    Looking at it id say MLC2 if it is an MLC,
    becouse the visor cut out on the No.1 looked a bit difrent than that, The number 2 looked more like the mystery helm, and your one seems to have those attrabutes
