    I'm not out for 'exact' detail- more so for collectability

    EDIT: besides, it's my only 'cheap' option for a completed helmet

    bobamker has a kit for roughly $350 but he also does paint jobs and I got a price quote from him a month ago and he said $750 for either ESB or ROTJ so he really does it all haha

    Re: Value of Master Replicas Boba helmet

    One of the issues is how the sides of the vertical part of the T-visor taper in towards the bottom of the helmet instead of running parallel all the way down. And while I have never seen one in person, I've read that the paint job is sort of a hybrid between the ESB helmet and the Pre-pro 3 helmet. So you're not getting a true representation of either helmet.

    Then, how could the price of such a helmet go UP? It makes very little sense I thought something like that would go DOWN in price, An almost spot on helmet costs less than $800

    The tapering at the bottom of the visor and the paint job doesn't offer the best representation of the fett helmet with the other choices out there. For the price collectors pay for it its kind of outrageous compared to what you could have for a much more accurate helmet.

    Hi guys I'm new and wondering where I can purchase a master replica Boba helmet. I would also like to know of a place where I can get myself a good jet pack. The other day I was in a website which had all kinds of Mandolorian armor but did not save and can no longer find. Im so excited to start building my Boba Fett Armor.

    They pop up on eBay a lot Chip, there are two up right now. You can also find a nice jetpack off eBay from user "Man of War Studios."

    Re: Value of Master Replicas Boba helmet

    honestly, for the price they run for... is it worth it? I've seen helmets (and obtained one myself) made by fans here and sold here at way higher caliber for a much more affordable price.

    I understand people like the collectors items and things... but I just can't justify the price tag on them. My opinion I know but hey

    Re: Value of Master Replicas Boba helmet

    The up side is they've usually kept their value because by the time you get a top of the line helmet kit and commissioned to get painted, you'll be spending around the low/mid $800 mark, not to mention the time needed to wait for it. Now, 99% of people on this site will probably not care much for it because they know they can get better ones here and/or have the patience to wait for one, but a lot of other SW collectors, who aren't focused on just Fett, will opt for the MR because its an officially licensed piece with not much turnaround time.

    I, myself, have the MR bucket for now and dont ever plan on getting rid of it. I'm able to look past the few small inaccuracies as it really doesn't bother me at all. I'll eventually have to get a custom one from someone here though since I do want to own an ROTJ version, but its not on my immediate to-do list.

    The MR certainly isn't a bad helmet. Fix up the visor pinch and it's pretty solid for the price.
