    Also, Stay far away from the 2 piece helmet. I saw some at a costume shop and they suck bad. That's about all I can say about it.

    I saw that 2 part one also. The only thing good on it is the range finder and it even looked short.

    hahaha, yeah I hope rubies comes out with a "deluxe" edition Zam Wessell. We can look forward to seeing a skin tight pair of ladies jammies with the armor stenciled on.

    For crying out loud Rubies! You can vacuform thin styrene chest plates, glue it to a pre-made vinyl vest, vacuform some thigh, shin, and kneepads, give them some elastic bands. Then slap the whole thing onto a thin blue chemical jumpsuit with a pair of vacuformed styrene gauntlets...VIOLA! You have a very nice Jango for about $12 (in bulk), which you can still mark up to $60-$70 and make a hefty profit. Geez, at least have some pride in your work. I mean I would hate to be a kid whose parents spent $35 for the Jango holsters + $60 for the deluxe costume only to look like a complete moron in a pair of underoos.

    That's why Ive always made my costumes since I was age 9.

    Actually shawpane, the rubies is not that bad considering the alternatives, spend time + money searching for a DP, get a DP recast, or get a FG cast of a mystery helmet...The rubies is actually a decent helmet, the top is not flat like some DP's Ive seen, plus the vinyl material holds it shape well.

    If you notice...it seems all the sellers on Ebay are using the same pic on all their helmets. Even on the 2 piece cheapo. uke

    I dislike the Rubies intensely, because not only does it suck, but they are charging twice as much money as DP charged for their helmet that sucked only marginally less.

    Sadly, I am short enough that I have no neck in the DP helmet. No, I can't just put the helmet up higher...not if I want to see anything. I will probably end up wearing the awful Rubies thing, if I can find one on clearance.

    Lisa,
    Good luck finding one on clearance. All the suckers(myself included) snaged them all up in my area!

    I went to a costume shop today and saw that they were sold out of the jango jammies. Sold out? A town this small, certainly I'll run into someone at one of the bars wearing jango jammies. I cant wait....

    What mods can you do to a Rubies Jango helmet to make it better or more accurate?

    If I had a Rubies helmet, I would modify who owns it by dumping it off on someone on ebay.

    Ouch. They're that bad?

    Merged: Re: Mods to the Rubies Jango helmet

    They are not that bad, but they are not DP's either. It will need a paint job and a full visor to begin with. I have one and it is ok.

    I think I can handle that. How bad are they size-wise?

    I'm 6'2" and it is WAY too small on me.

    That is why I am ditching it...

    I am 5,11" and it looks a little small on me but I figure it will do untill I find a better one. There are a couple of pics of mine on mgr's finished jango

    What I am hoping to do is recast it and make a fiberglass copy. Once I recast I can modify the mold however I need to.

    My buddy Shawnpayne is modifying one for me as part of a trade. I'm only 5'2" so it fits me well. He's put in a new visor and rangefinder, a hard hat liner(I think), he fiberglassed the inside to make it more sturdy and put a pretty crushed velvet liner inside He's installing some cooling fans and a mic system for me and will be repainting the entire helmet as well. I'll be posting pics when I get it.
