    Apr 4, 2003, 8:23 PM - rubies oddity found! #1

    hey guys and gals

    i was over to a local shop helping them put away an order and came across a shipment of rubies helmets, as we were pricing them , i noticed one of the boba helmets was GREATLY larger than the rest ( barely fit in the box), this of course intrested me so i immediatly tore open the box and tried it on, and its like 3 inches bigger than the others......so i bought it straight away and hurried it home to compare with the otehrs i have in my collection, and its the biggest one here!!...bigger than my 97, 96, and even the 95!!........could this possibly be a C.A. re-cast ???......its the typical lousy wavy rubies cast, but its size is impressive, and i wanted to know if anyone else has one this big??.......???????

    what's the size like front-back? Is it ridiculously long or is well-proportioned?

    I haven't heard anything like it before, if you can post pics I'd like to see it

    There was no Fett C.A. helmet to begin with. Do you mean the Deluxe??

    Pics, if possible, would help quite a bit.

    Yes to all the above, and where did this happen? What state/province etc.?

    Could it be that Rubies are listening to the Fett fans and starting to produce a half decent lid,

    we'll have to wait and see, maybe jango will be next

    It's hard for me to tell with the compressed graphics at work, but it appears to be just as long front-back but it evens out the proportion by being very wide. Is that right? I can't see it well...

    Strange..It really appears to be larger. But isn't the Jango helmet smaller than the regular Rubies Boba Helmet ?

    Edit: It would be nice to compare the proportions of the helmet too(front view, side, etc) Any more pics?

    on the back its stamped :


    to the left of the key slots:

    c 2002 lucasfilm ltd.
    all rights reserved
    used under authorisation
    rubies costume co inc.

    but on teh right of the key slots is some raised area, looks like where the post info amy have been?

    i compared it to my otehr don post helmets and where the info is written on those helmets you can see on teh new rubies helmet where in teh mold that area was filled in as it is sort of raised in those areas, like they filled in teh info that was on the molds....i can make out a little of it, and what i can make out, letters, ect....are a dead on match to my 96 post...??????............as i said an oddity to be sure........8)

    Thanks for the pics! It does appear to be larger like you stated. I don't know if you know the shop owner....but if you do, is there a way to check his shipping invoice for the item # for the helmets. Maybe, by chance, there will be a part/sku # for the helmet that we can all use. Only if the shop owner doesn't mind though. It's just an idea....don't get into any trouble.

    You should try to do some shots straight on. At that perspective, it's hard to tell how much bigger it is, if at all (the one closer to the camera is *always* going to look bigger). Put them both on a shelf, and take the picture looking at the fronts, with both helmets the same distance from the camera.

    I'd like to take a look at the Helmet comparrisons too, this sounds like one hell of a break if Rubies is listening to our pleads
