    I'm going to have to say that ROTJ is better. SE Fetts use the ESB helmet for personal preference, and many of us don't believe that the Special Edition movies ever existed.

    Pure ROTJ, for the win.

    It's not that i don't like the ROTJ bucket it's just that there's soo much information on the ESB. I mean between Count Dookie's stencils and Lee's amazing paint list I'm going ESB for my first bucket .... I'll do my second ROTJ when Lee releases a ROTJ paint list 3 year from now

    Why is it that there are so few ROTJ buckets???....maybe that's why you like them Evan

    Its a real bugger as to which one I like. Like many Fett fans, I really like the ESB helmet and I really like the ROTJ armor and JP. So SE is ideal for most costumers and me too I guess.

    On the other hand, I love the look of Pure ESB or ROTJ.

    So what I have decided to do is do the SE (AOSW) set of ROTJ armor with the ESB helmet and have a ROTJ helmet with a vest of the MOM chestplates so I can go "hero ROTJ"

    This just means they used the ESB helmet as a STUNT helmet, cause they didn't want to wreck their cool new ROTJ helmet and didn't care what happened to the ESB helmet, since it was from an old movie and not the one they were currently filming.

    my fondness for rotj is that it looks more "real" to me... it's not artistic, not pretty. it's just beaten all to heck.

    ooooo!!. You got me.....that was a good one ...I don't like you, j/k

    I just think the paint job on the ROTJ looks "rushed"....and no thought or time was put into it....and maybe they didn't think people like us would notice and just tried to pass it off ....

    I mean seriously, in "movie time", how long was it from the time Boba took Han Solo(in ESB) to Jabba that he was able to get a whole new set of "painted" armor, gauntlets and helmet (for ROTJ)?????? ....oh and to have them weathered so much ????
    I mean "HELLO" did they not know that we would notice the Gauntlets went from Green to Red?? LOL! ...maybe I'm taking it too far.

    SE/ ESB ALL THE WAY BABY!!

    To paraphrase a line from Silence of the Lambs, the damage on the ROTJ helmet looks 'randomly random', to the point where the damage doesn't resemble chips or scratches at all. To me, it just appears they slapped paint on it at will.

    I prefer the ESB helmet because of the stickers, for one. They give the helmet a more utilitarian look. Also, the damage on the ESB looks more realistic to me.
