Discussion on There's a new licensed helmet in town . . . within the Boba Fett Helmet forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; Well, sort of Coming soon. Great helmet for kids, with
I'm sure someone will gut it for the electronics. That was my first thought, and it might be usefull in that regard.
The other features include some lines that are not in ESB and which are particularly cheesy, like "I'm Boba Fett. You may have heard of me," and "I am the hunter. . . you are the prey."
One of the buttons on the side activates the phrases and another activates the "Sound." I wish I could read what the sound is, i.e. blater sound, or what. Would be awesome if it was that background pinging sound the suit makes, but then again, I always wondered how he'd sneak up on anyone making all that racket
one good thing about that wide visor is it could help with those slightly claustrophobic people, giving them a bit more room to see
theres a thread about it in the sarlac pit the box is a mock up not real so the phrases probably arent real
this is bobs helmet after he had catarack surgery
That's actually pretty good to my eyes.
Once you did a mod to that upper visor area, I don't think it'll be half bad.
Less work than modding one of the Clone helmets as far as I can tell.
anyone have a link for this? or know of a price for one?
Probably the same as the CW Clone/Rex helmets. $30.
Here's a REAL quick and dirty image fix for an idea of what one of these would look like fixed up for your kid by taking out some of that extra eye space . . .
how would one go about fixing that visor area? ideas?
No, I believe you could just remove the ear cap if it is removeable and cut some of the space out between and move everything together. You might have to cut around the earpiece. Then you would have to glue, etc. everything back in place.
I'm thinking it would be a lot less work to just get one of those child size helmet kits already available; it's just interesting what's out there and, as always, contemplate what they "should" have done. Who knows, this is a prototype, I believe, so maybe the final product will be more squinted up.
this would be great to salvage the electronics from for my next bucket
The only thing I see happening with this helmet is a million more mando mercs....
The total cost of the helmet may justify buying one to gut the rangefinder electronics, which I'm thinking would be about the same cost as purchasing an electronics board by itself.
Then you can slap the remaining bucket on Ebay and maybe get some of that initial outlay back.
Just like the Hasbro clone helmets, I'm sure you could mod them to be semi-decent. Course, what would the sizing be? Since it's for a child's head, would it be undersized?
nice to hear friendly comments from those that contribute so much to the community!!! cheers!! lol...
