    So far i have disassembled the hasbro removed the visor cut out the grill work mask and cut the eyeslit down to make it more authentic. The pics of it rebuilt are just a practice run with tape to try and get the look right. Still needs some tweaking! I put sintra sheets in the cheeks. Man that thing is a total b@$!4rd to pull apart! Loads of hidden screws! Also had a go at adjusting th RF so it goes down at a right angle instead of where it usually sits so it wont inhibit vision. Still needs tweaking an adjusting but im getting there

    The Hasbro is a good bit bigger than the movie sized one, but they're a cheaper and easier place to start than Rubies. I picked one up (missing rangefinder) at Goodwill last week for $2. On the shelf with my Rubies mod and Mystery Helmet, the Mystery Helmet (closest to movie size) is almost exactly halfway between the other two size-wise.

    Re: my hasbro boba mod

    Its looking good, but I must say that the under cheeks do look a little long, making the whole front look too long.

    Re: my hasbro boba mod

    By all means it is your bucket, and a remarkable job you've done so far, but if I may make a suggestion, by simply trimming the lower cheeks at a different angle may help, but Im not sure how much more progress you;ve made. I've drawn some lines to suggest a less steep angle for you.

    Glad I could help, and I must say its looking much better, I did a mod of this helmet for halloween before getting my latest kit, but I must say you have taken it to a whole other level, congrats! Now take your time and paint it up right and you'll have a hell of a bucket.

    next step almost finished the visor need some weathering to dull it down a bit the lighting makes it look much more green than it actually is but hey pics arent always acurate represntations! have to touch up the kill stripes work some more on the dome and do the back but its starting to shape up nicely i think!
