    Jul 4, 2010, 4:58 PM - New to this but would like quality parts #1

    I am looking to get a set put together, mostly as a display type piece, I would look like Disney's Fett if I tried to wear it, But of course the first piece I would like to start with is the Helmet. Since weight will not be a factor would the FP or the BM helmet be a better starting place or is there an even better place to start? I know newbs with questions are annoying but thanks for the time.

    you would be happy with either helmet, brother...=) you have to consider that bobamaker is UK based, so shipping will up the price some...but i have owned one of his helmets, and it is totally worth it! also own an FP and it is amazing, so either one is going to be great!! both gentlemen have great service, and their products are top notch! so it is just a matter of personal choice or preference...study the helmets, and make your pick!

    I have owned both and you cannot go wrong with either one. BM is more of a fan sculpt where as the FP is the MR proto that came from a 3d scan of one of the pre pro buckets. If time is an issue it will take at least 6 months to receive a BM bucket from Daz and about a month to a month and half to get one from Chris and that is raw and unpainted on both. If you have any other questions feel free to drop me a PM. Also welcome you will find everything that you need to know right here on this board a lot of great people all willing to lend a hand where they can.

    Thanks so much for the responses, What I was kind of thinking is there is a BM for sale used, and painted as an, animated Fett in the Cargo Hold, So as bad as it might be to ruin that paint job, have some one strip it and give it an ESB job, that way I would not have to wait. I will look into both helmets though some more. I just feel I can get a better helm with some love put into it other than just buying an MR. I really appreciayed the responses and will be around thats for sure

    I am in the same boat as you snowrs. Jumping head first into this and finally decided to sign up with the forum after browsing it at work =) for the last few months. Currently in the midst of searching for one as well and hoping to have just as good luck as you.

    Thanks for the plug D.

    Snowrs I would definitely take your time in choosing your bucket to me it is the most crucial part of the costume as it is the first thing that people recognize.

    I did go ahead and buy a helmet.

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...headlesshunter

    I looked at the pics and I have seen and actually tried on a MR and looked at the people who commented and the quality of work and decided to jump on it. It was an ESB paint job so I am now going to move on to the next phase, after I buy led's to put in the RF probably gr8ness version sice he builds one for the RF.
