    I picked up this helmet from a guy in my area and now Im trying to identify it. It appears to be a mystery helmet, maybe a re-casted Sgt. Fang or Marrow Sun? any thoughts, help and assistance would be appreciated.

    Interesting points:

    • Appears to be an overall poor recast or B-pull
    • T-visor area, looks to be taken down with a dremel to remove something, maybe the original marks mark?
    • Has a few more dents then Boba had, a bit lumpy in areas
    • Back key slots are way crooked and off center
    • Ears seem to be a more course or rough back resin?
    • Black resin mixture


    Thank you

    It certainly looks like a recasting of a Sgt Fang helmet to me. There is a lot of similarities to imperfections that were on the Sgt Fang helmets.

    Yeah, either a Fang or an early Marrow Sun. The crooked "turn signals" above the brow are a giveaway.
    Also the faint line running vertically to the left of the keyslots and up into the dome.

    I would say definitely an early Marrow Sun recast

    i'd say it's a fangs recast because of those rounded cheek corners, the uneven turn signals, and the soft details of the upper ear platform. very similar to my old fangs helmet.

    I would go with an early Marrow Sun recast. As Eric says the turn arrows are the give away
