    Helmet neck guard

    According to this picture of Jango Fett's helmet, there is a neck piece right above the shoulder armour and in the helmet that blocks curious eyes from looking up into your helmet (and possibly seeing your face) Anyone know of ideas of how that is made or how it is attached? I think this would look great on the Boba Helmet since they are pretty much the same

    Well you can kinda see in the pics. There is velcro around the inside rim of the helmet and the edge of the fabic has the other half. It is sort of folded over and then only the 'leather' shows. I got this one from BKBT, i do not know if he still makes them or not

    Re: Helmet neck guard

    We can only assume so since its on the c2 suit which he wore. The CG jango had one. I dont remember if there was a scene where you saw this and it was actually Tem. Maybe the scene on kamino when he's sliding down the roof of the building with OWK?? i dont know, but its on the c2 suit and its a great idea for people not seeing up into your bucket, also keeps it nice and WARM in there.... hello can i get a glass of water please.....

    No, the right knee is there. It just blends in with the thigh. Look at the contours. It's there!

    I think it broke off when He headbutted Kenobi. I think I see the knee now, its way up on his knee though.

    Re: Helmet neck guard

    Im almost tempted to think that he uses a replacement jet pack and helmet in geonosis, as his helmet there has a dent in it, Im triyng to find a pic of it early in the geonosis scenes to see if it is there early or a result of the Reek fight thing.

    The dent is from this battle with obi. And yes the jet pack is totally different on geonosis. Thats when he wears the stubby arena pack. On Kamino he is wearing the classic "boba" style pack
