    Jan 25, 2008, 9:50 PM - NEW MR FETT HELMET PICS #1

    Thought since we did a mini photo shoot I would post new shots of the new Master Replicas Boba Fett Helmet.

    Over all I think it's a great piece to have...very clean...and to me, is the "Idealized" version of what we've all come to love.

    Thanks to Phillip Wise (from rebelscum.com) and Darthmiller for their help with the photo shoot.

    ...and please give me, Darthmiller, and Phillip Wise credit if you reuse these pictures.

    Now on with the pics!!

    Well....Spidey I must say that it was a awesome experience to open up this bad boy with you and Philip!!!

    Cant wait to see the FPH comparison shots!!

    I have to give credit to MR...they did a great job!!! However I wish they had used the ESB Hero helmet instead of the prepro bucket. I really think they could have nailed the HERO bucket.

    I must admit that I will be getting one of these for myself!!

    Jason, seeing you with that helmet on, and the " ", the first thing that came to mind was that it almost looks like you're having a "Jar-Jar" moment there I could only imagine your numb tongue hanging out inside the helmet

    Great shots of the MR !!!!! I'm very impressed with this helmet ! I can't wait to get mine now !!!!

    I am as well. Would really like to hear why MR purposely did that; they obviously could have corrected it.

    It should be a REAL easy fix. However, the visor that is shipped with the helmet would probably have to be replaced. As I understand it, the MR visor is paper thin anyway. so no big loss

    I'd b happy to post "my" solution to this once I get mine.

    Looks like I was beaten to the line with the 'how do you fix the wonky visor' question, is the taper inherent to the cast or has it been installed wonky? That make sense? Great photos bro!!

    I noticed in one of the pictures (that I've been pouring over, THANKS!) the RF top is missing the bottom clear piece, is that how the batteries are replaced?

    This is a real real amazing HELMET !!! My god, there is no doubt that this is the very BEST work that MR has done... and well, after all, the best farewell that they could have done... with their master piece...!!!

    HATS OFF FOR YOU MR !!!

    I was thinking (about 1 year ago), to get 1 to repaint it, but damned it, is so beautifull that makes me doubt !!! .

    FP, about the mod, please post all the info you can (off course, when you can), I'm really interesting in seeing how it can be done !!! (without actually messing the helmet ).

    Great pics and comparison, btw.

    good catch...and you're 100% right.
    you have to have the worlds smallest screw driver to get that sucker open too..
    But once the batteries are in the RF bottom peice just clips on...that bottom peice is really just a cheaply molded peice of plastic....but it looks good once installed.

    Awesome pics! I'm really impressed with the MR. The taper didn't bother me too much at first, but seeing it side by side with FP's beauty in the other thread I think it's something I'll be looking at fixing as well. All and all a beautiful bucket!

    The interrior is nicely padded. Go to Starwarshelmets.com and click on the MR helmet link for an inside shot of the prototype.

    While all the real helmets have a certain degree of wonkiness on on the left mandible, I disgree that the visor pinch on the MR is directly from the PP3 scan.

    Here is proof:




    On the left, is a photo of Montagar's MR Fett helmet. On the right, is a photo of the actual ILM Prepro 3 helmet that MR scanned for its replica. One can clearly see that the MR helmet's visor assembly pinches the mandibles closer together than what they should be.

    I haven't recieved mine yet, but that tapering thing is definately bugging me. I don't understand how they could let that pass quality control. After the first few were made, they should've realized the problem. On the other hand, it will make it distinct and immediately noticeable. Maybe since I haven't received mine yet, the defective ones were shipped out first and mine will be corrected. ha! I doubt it, but that would be funny.

    hmmm..Interesting..

    Maybe its a combination of both..?? no?..

    Cause by looking at the pics what we are really saying is MR could have fixed it?? and didn't?
    Cause the PP3 does show a tapper..and not completely parallel mandibles from top to bottom...
