    I've seen helmets with painted "ears" on the dome just above the visor. What are those, and where do they come from, any story behind it?

    do you mean the arrows? I think only the ROTJ helmet has painted arrows, but im not 100% sure on that. For the story behind that, it beats me. I think theres like one of those diagrams that point to every piece of fett's suit that says something about it, but I dont know about the arrows

    I think mandosoldier is talking about the "ears" or "eyes" painted on one of the earlier helmets, not the turn signals on the esb and jedi helmet.

    I tried to find a pic, but didn't have any luck. I know someone will come through!

    Hi!

    If you are talking about the Boba Fett helmet, I assume you mean the "eyes" rather than the "ears"

    Here's a thread discussing the so called PRE PRO version:

    I'm far from being an expert, but I think this helmet was one of a few being created before (pre-production) the final version used in the movies.

    Greetz,
    Peter

    There is the ears lid which i think you are talking about. Its the prepro 1 version if i,m not mistaken. I have also included the eyes version as well. I am never sure if both of these are classed as prepro 1 or not ????

    my fav lid though

    The "eyes" are also on some concept drawings.
