    Glad you like the bucket Turo


    Guys, the BKBT bucket is phenomenal, no doubt. It is indeed the cat's meow of fan made Jango buckets. But it must be stated for the record that there are indeed many not so subtle differences.

    It must be considered that the BKBT is in fact a "Boba" Mystery Helmet, that has been modified for Jango. It is not a sculpt, or re-sculpt in terms of clay sculptures, ect. What this means is, no matter how you slice it, it is impossible for any artist to capture all of the details (subtle or not so subtle) of a one dimensional image, and incorporate it into a three dimensional object. I should know, and feel I have the right to say so, being that I spent 2 years with the original MSH, and the MSH2. Which WERE sculpts.

    The differences between these two helmets are much more apparent in real life. Pictures are very deceiving. It's been a topic of discussion for years here. Exhibit photos, vs. fan digi cam photos, vs. published images, ect. They can all appear different from one another. It is fact. Lighting, perspective, focal length, ect. And perhaps more importantly, the possible bias of the particular photographer Which is why I've chosen not to take comparison photos of this helmet next to a BKBT. Because no matter what, a tilt here, a skew there, and I could be subconsciously pushing the shot more to the favor of my own interest It's human.

    Surely, there will be those that will be able to take unbiased comparison pictures once a few have settled into the rightful hands of their collectors. (Not dissin' you Turo, I know you were in a hurry )

    Bottom line, this IS the "REAL DEAL". There should be no defending this boys and girls. And realistically, there is no comparison. The same would be true for a real "Boba" helmet compared to an MSH, MSH2, or Mystery Helmet It's not meant to offend anyone obviously, otherwise that statement would have been taking a shot at myself as well So that's about as unbiassed as I can get.

    There are a TON of PM's and e-mails that I must answer, so as always, thanks for your patience while I make my way through them !


    Oh, and no one missed anything. Someone is working on it ... proof is in the pictures as they say ...








    Thanks everyone !!!!!

    You lucky dog Seeker, thats just a great looking helmet. I have not been on the dent for long, but know folks who have seen FP's stuff for years and they never have a bad thing to say about it. So once again great work FP even if I dont end up with one of these babies I hope I get to see one atleast some day.

    heh heh. Thanks man. The helmet was made like the real deal. This baby was made by using the gelcoat mixed with alluminum powder and backed with fiberglass.


    TD0488 - I'm not sure if he ever made a list, but you should drop him a private message.

    Well here are some updates. Hopefully i would have ready for Comic Con.

    I still need to permanatey attach the visor, add some mesh in the coin slots, padding and weathering.
