    Sep 27, 2010, 3:05 AM - My New Boba Fett Helmet - The Grant McCune Boba Fett Helmet Casting #1

    Hi guys! I am currently out of the country, on vacation, but I couldn’t wait to share this with you!


    One of my prop dreams is to own an original prop relating to Boba Fett. While I still haven’t quite reached that ultimate goal, I have just come a step closer and picked up a truly awesome piece of Boba Fett replica history; an extremely early casting of the Preproduction #2 Boba Fett helmet! In fact, based on a number of details, I believe this is one of the earliest known castings, alongside the Ken Tarallo Ultracal plug!


    While I will have a more thorough breakdown of the helmet, sharing more details next week, when I have returned home, I have written a preliminary article going over the history and some of the findings this new casting has brought to light. Hope you enjoy it, and can’t wait to get back home so I can share more with you about it!

    Amazing find Art, and a comprehensive history.
    There are usually destined to be some holes or grey areas with things like this but I think you are pretty close.

    Cant wait for the second article.
