    The green does not look very accurate on that bucket.

    I agree on the green and the mandibles appear ... brown. Maybe it's just the picture, but that doesn't look like red paint...

    I know mate..
    Its not the most accurate...
    but it is an official Lucasfilm endorsed one..
    and #302 of only 500 made...
    So I aint planning on changing it...
    I want it to hold some value...
    Plenty of other buckets out there to tamper with...

    I think it looks terrific Mason and I'm sure you're just as proud of it as anybody else here is of their helmet, no matter what type it is.
    Hell, mine's probably not the exact shade of green either but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    cheers for the kind words darthbish...
    I've seen some very weird and wonderful versions in these forums myself...
    Not all are accurate remakes...
    many are variances of the owners own signature style...
    and who is to tell them they are wrong or right...
    Its thier's to enjoy!
    I never posted to say it the most accurate helmet available...
    just giving you all a chance to view it...

    Mason.
    Ps:...your right!...I do love just the way it is...LOL!

    Ok, the Altmann's isn't that accurate in comparison to a MSH or a Marrow_Sun, but in any case a better helmet than a ugly DP 97

    Ya look awesome, only thing I do not like is it looks like the weathering on the red visored part went overboard, otherwise it looks good. the grrne could be bleached out from the flash.

    hope you don't mind me asking, but did you get it on Ebay or from a shop??
  14. Nov 18, 2004, 5:06 PM - Re: My Altmann's bucket... #14

    through e-bay, but the seller has a Sci-fi store in OZ...
    hence the shop background in the original pics...

    Why not re-paint the altmann's........lousiest paint job in history,and guys,believe me,these lids aren't going to go up in price anytime this century,as new companies no doubt,would take over the licence.
    Lemme say lads and lasses,if I sent my clients a lid that looked like the 'bloody ugly altmann's' paint job,I'd probably get beaten up.........
    I'd bloody well deserve it,too,if I sold a lid that looked like that!
    I own 2,one numbered #9 which is total crap,and a 'pre-licensed' boba,bought 10 yrs ago at Comics'r'us for AU$195,which is much more like the real thing.
    The rumor is,Steve got caught by LFL lawyers,and had to cough up the fees.......No idea if it's true,or not,but LFL has a looooooooong history of approving 'inaccurate' releases,so we can't blame Steve Altmann.........as usual,LFL can say 'mea culpa'........('i'm to blame',for those who didn't learn latin at school.....lolololol.

    funnily enough I got my pre-license Altman about then too. I always thought it was better than the licensed ones...It's certainly a bit bigger and more "flared".
    Having said that though, I still think that Mason has every right to be as "proud as punch" with the one that he's got.
  22. Nov 21, 2004, 8:08 AM - Re: My Altmann's bucket... #22

    think I'd rather keep it original...
    than take your suggestions Ozfettmaker...

    I wasn't planning on making a fortune out of it...
    It's a keeper and a piece of lucasfilm licensed history.

    Like I said...there plenty of other buckets to tamper with...

    I have only ever seen 1 blurry small picture of this helmet on the "starwarshelmets" website and therefore posted it to show a better view of it...

    thank you for your opinion Ozfettmaker,...
    although, it has been totally disregarded...8)

    Mason.
    Ps: you own one?....if you dont like it...send it to me...then I would do a repaint job...on the spare one..LOL!

    now is this an in your face post or what, is this the guy who pulled molds from the altmanns fett? then sold it on ebay? if you didnt like the fett helmet then why buy it???"steve" never got "caught" by LFL lawyers either, sounds like a personal beatup here.I know a local australian fan club did, trying to rip off "steves' helmets! as for the altmanns fett, I HAVE THE INSIDE EDGE HERE, altmanns sent a "fett" for approval,while they thought it was ok it wasnt close SO LFL said they would send over a "FETT" for altmanns to copy, the colors, the metal parts,the detailing, etc, once this was done the approval was done in two weeks, the total process was 9 months,from start to finish, so to those who attack the ones who do the hard work to bring something to the "public" .WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES AND NEVER..........NEVER... attack the opposition

    Hi,

    Pillbury, welcome to the board. I agree there is no reason to attack Steve personally. However, his helmet does come under harsh scrutiny because of the nature of the board: seeking accuracy in all things Boba Fett.

    While it is very clear that Don Post had access to real helmet while making the Deluxe Fett helmet, i.e. the dent is cast from an original, there are no parts on the Altmann's helmet that show that Steve had access to an original.

    Is there any proof that LFL sent Steve an original helmet? If Steve did receive a real helmet from LFL, I am almost certain he would have photographed it. Have you seen any pictures of they original helmet they sent him? I would love to see the pictures.

    I also would have expected the colors to be more accurate if Steve did have access to a real helmet. I've been around the Fett scene for awhile, and I've known about Steve's work for quite some time, but this is the first time I've heard that LFL sent him a real helmet. Without any proof, I'm skeptical of the claim.
