    what helmet is more accurate?

    so like most of us here i want a screen accurate helmet and to be in the 501st
    ive been researching helmets and im comparing 2
    the RS prop masters helmet


    & boba makers helmet
    bobamaker: Helmet


    boba makers helmet does look more true to the movies as it has the bent brow the un even cheeks and the smaller details but RSPM looks more even
    so
    who should i go for when buying a helmet?

    If you are building an ESB, get the FPH2. There isn't another helmet available that is more accurate for the version of fett. Not sure about which would be better for an ROTJ.

    Personally, if Chris is working on an ROTJ lid, I would wait for it, unless you are in a rush to build the suit. FP stuff is some of the best you can get, you just need to email him or send him a message on FB.

    501 prerequisite does not focus on the bent brow and mentions a "dent in the left front"...

    If he working on an ROTJ, I may have to ask him about it, but I still want an fph2. He has one of my kits for it, I'm anxious to see a lid with it installed. Hopefully he will post some pics.

    It's the best choice for ESB.
    @Jc27, don't think it's a matter of if on the FPH2 ROTJ, but when. He's shown it off on FB and it's rather beautiful.

    I don't do Facebook so I haven't seen it yet. Once I get the green GOW bulbs I will be offering the fph2 light kit for both ESB and ROTJ.

    Lol...it's painless. And we won't tell anyone....
    Dom, I know you've seen the teaser pics. I wasn't honestly much on the thought of an ROTJ lid till I saw that....the damage across that bucket is incredible....

    Theres more Damage on that helmet then on any of the others....and chris nailed it...wait till you see the rest. As I paint alot of ROTJ lids I would say I know it like the back of my hand and he blew my mind.
