    I had not heard about this coming out, so sorry if we've already covered this tragedy. I can't believe there's something out there that would make me prefer the DP 97.

    Take a look at this "helmet".

    I am pretty sure the "dent" is just painted on...

    What are you talking about guys? The shape is perfect, it's got some nice healthy silver streaks that show the uber realistic battle damage . . and, my favourite part, that super bendy rangefinder . . . looks sweet!

    The rangefinder looks like a cobra that is getting ready to bite him in the head. Again, what do you expect for $20 when the really good helmets are several hundred bucks? I just hope that none of the 'budget Boba's' hear get desparate enough to buy this, ummm, turd.

    What's up with the construction paper in the face shield? You supposed to be able to see through that?

    They put that there so you can't look in the mirror and see how stupid you look wearing it.

    I don't think this is the rubie's helmet. I think it's like a mask that totally bends like most masks. Don't know who makes this though. It says vinyl but it's like the pullover masks, maybe just a bit thicker.

    I am pretty sure I ran across this beauty a while back at party city. It was a magnificent piece of garbage. If you set it on its side , the thing would slowly fold in half.

    I am ashamed at all of you! How dare you make fun of that mask made at the Hellen Keller institute for the artistacally disfunctional! I swear I could make a better one out of toilet paper, elmers glue, and my feet!

    Maybe we should open a forum for costume cheapskates called "The painted dent"

    I think the face shield is actually fabric. I really think lucas should reconsider their licenses before Ep. III, although they are using better materials for the deluxe Jango, compare it to a 98 Don Post...Much more rigid.

    hey i just got the rubies clonetrooper and jango helmets. The clonetrooper isnt too bad, im doing some reconstruction on that. The Jango one i was going to display, but its such a pitiful, crappy paint job, the morons did such a crappy job in masking the helmet for paint, seams arent straight, a piece of hair is on top painted over,etc. Why Rubies got the contract to handle sw merch is beyond me. Anyhow ive got a few ideas for it as a secondary helmet.

    OMFG! Lucas should put on each companies costume and get kicked in the cod. Maybe we'd end up with better quality costumes

    You'd think after all the time and effort that goes into making these friggen movies, the same effort would go into merchandising. I guess they figure SW fans have no money so we want cheap crap. Little do they know...

    To be honest, I can understand some of the cheap crap, and I don't mind that they sell it for the fans who just want to throw something on for Halloween and never think about it again... It just makes it all the more sweet when those of us who do so much work on ours stand next to the guy in Ruby pajama's... 8)

    But what DOES get me is that there are so few LEGAL options for those of us who do want something nice and authentic.

    Granted, there is a big market for the cheap stuff or else they wouldn't even TRY to get a way with what they make...

    But there IS a market, though a relatively small one, for very NICE stuff... so why not sell a small license for someone to make a helmet that is WORTH THE TROUBLE as Collectors edition? Someone we can trust to do a good job?

    Calling a piece of crap the collectors edition when serious collecters toss theirs across their room the minute they get it in the mail is what I don't get...
