    May 26, 2012, 8:59 AM - Need a larger helmet #1

    I just got an Asok helmet this week. Problem is I can't get it on, the cheeks of the helmet catch me on the brow. It's the same problem I have with almost all clone helmets as well. I wear a 7 5/8 hat but my I need a helmet that is a bit longer front to back or larger overall. Any suggestions to something that is still available?

    Thanks

    Almost all helmets will do this most have to put it on and give it a bit of a twist to get it down, though if you can find a FPH there aparently one of the largest that was made,

    I tried putting it on sideways before I posted, I'm used to putting buckets on that way since I troop as a stormtrooper about 90% of the time.

    If I read right Grifter has the FPH mold but I can't find a peep about him making any. Do they pop up second hand often, or is there another over sized helmet I should be looking at?

    The MSH helmets are definitely some of the largest helmets but those rarely pop up as well.

    Are MLC helmets a viable option? I've read they are brittle, but at least they are available.

    According to this thread they are smaller than MR based helmets:

    Hey Terrell! I was worried about the same thing. I know theres some work in the MR helmets (Left) with the visor but this comparison on SW Helmets sold me. He shows a comparison with the MSH and they look nearly identical...

    Don't know if you've found a suitable bucket yet or not but here's what little info I can offer. I hunted to find the largest one I could find for my ginormous melon but was also under time restraints at the time. I was told FP and BM were the two largest (this was a few years ago before the GMH) and eventually I went with the BM helmet. It fits...but barely. To get it on I have to place the bottom of the mandibles against my chin so that the cheeks are in my temples and then roll the helmet back to get it on. Works well enough but it would be nice to have a helmet that I could just plunk on easily. Maybe when I can afford a second bucket I'll try a GMH.

    Hope this helps.

    FPH also is pretty hefty, and a GMH is relatively the size of the FP budget (asok FP Budget)

    When you are looking for a helmet u should measure your head just above your ears this helped me alot when looking for a lid myself, I to have a large melon I wear a size 8' hat lol.

    My BM lid goes on sideways and then I have to twist it round to face front. Same with my stormie lid. Not such a big deal IMO.

    It's not a bid deal unless you can't get the helmet on any direction.

    I can just get my Asok helmet on now after some considerable grinding on the inside of the helmet. Looks like I'll be needing a fiberglass helmet to do the trick.
