    What do you think of this helmet kit?

    Hello,
    I saw this kit on ebay and it says:

    "his auction is for an amazing 1:1 studio scale BOBA FETT HELMET Kit from Star Wars. It is made of thick hollow cast resin and is a kit that comes exactly as shown to be completed by buyer. The likeness is amazing, you will not be disappointed."

    link - PROP REPLICA STAR WARS BOBA FETT 1:1 SCALE HELMET KIT - eBay (item 140590413014 end time Aug-11-11 10:46:00 PDT)kgrhquoko4e3uwjmlyzbn9qvlnqf-_35-jpg

    Is this any good?
    Cheers!

    Wouldnt mess with it, buy from one of the guys on here, there are a few available, Fettpride makes 2 versions now of the helmet the GMH, read about it on the main page and the MR premium, Asok makes a helmet which is a fettpride budget, and a few others check out the cargo hold sir

    Chiming in (even though that lid is already sold) -- I agree with F4R - sticking to the sellers here such as Fettpride and Asok is the way to go.

    ebay is almost never a good place for stuff like that. for the most part, the folks who sell kits on ebay are the ones that don't take part in forums like this... often bad quality, recasts, or both.

    there are some exceptions... some of the reputable sellers here also post to the bay, but unless you know the seller, i would avoid.

    Thanks all! I skipped Ebay and looking at the budget Boba from Asok - looks superior to everything else I have seen anywhere off this site.

    Asok is the man ! His helmet is a great value and cold cast to boot - can't go wrong. Oh and did I mention NO SEAMS, super easy clean-up, add the T-visor while your at it. Truly great value.

    Asok is great to deal with. He is an excellent communicator, awesome products and he is the man if you are looking for a budget bucket. The cold cast is really nice with the aluminum metallic look! You really can't beat the price when you consider how professional his service is. He will defintely get my business again! Glad you are satisfied with the Helmet!
