    So i recently got myself a nice Riddell Fett helmet. Being a Jango fan, i am actually thinking of repainting it into a Jango.
    Should i do it? Cool or lame?
    ?

    Welcome. You'd ruin a cool Boba..
    But if you like Jango and can do a good paintjob, go for it.

    I saw one that got painted as Jango a while ago, it looked cool, but I think it looks nicer as Boba IMO.

    I did one as a Jango. It did not turn out bad. It was fun to do.

    Yeah, I had a really hard time getting mine as well.
    I ended up getting one in a "lot" purchase.
    It had the Boba, the Vader, & the Stormtrooper all together.
    It was $238 shipped.
    A pretty good deal I thought.
    The stormies get a little pricey

    Yes, but right now you can pick one up on ebay cheaper that it would cost to cast one up.
