    Apr 15, 2011, 1:53 PM - TRUE SIZE OF JANGO'S HELMET #1

    DOES ANYONE KNOW THE TRUE SIZE OR MEASUREMENT OF JANGO'S HELMET??? HERE IS MY ISSUE I HAVE TWO FINISHED JANGO HELMETS AND THEY ARE BOTH DIFFERERNT SIZES. THE ONE ON THE RIGHT I'VE HAD FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS AND IT IS FIBERGLASS AND 1" WIDER AND FLARED OUT AT THE BOTTOM. THE ONE ON THE LEFT IS CC (BOBAMAKERS) JANGO HELMET AND IS SMALLER. I LIKE DIFFERENT FEATURES FROM BOTH OF THEM BUT DON'T KNOW WHICH IS REALLY CLOSER TO THE ORIGINAL. FELLOW JANGO BROTHERS HELP ME OUT AND GIVE ME YOUR HONEST OPINION. ON WHAT YOU THINK BECAUSE ONE I AM KEEPING AND THE OTHER ONE I WILL SELL.THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.Click image for larger version.

    keep the bobamaker. Its the closest to the real deal. I believe he has a mold that came from a copy of the real deal.

    Thirded..... Is that a word?
    Yep, the Bobamaker helmet looks more accurate to me in shape, size, flare, etc, but I do love that shine on the other

    Bobamaker by a long shot. There are a lot of issues with that other helmet. The cheeks are wrong the RF is wrong the ears are wrong.....


    PS... It looks like a Cucblack to me.

    The BM looks more accurate, based on the reference pics. In addition, regarding an ASOK: Doesn't the ASOK helmets have a lineage back to an actual screen-used bucket? Please confirm or correct.

    bobamaker and asok's cold cast jango helmets lineage can both be traced back to, if not a screen-used helmet, at least to a production helmet from aotc.

    Yes, I agree with everyone's comments... and yes BM, Asok, FP, all of their's have lineage to the screen helmet, which is much smaller than most helmets out there.

    So is the BM and Asok mold both from the same ILM helmet or different helmets?

    Ok there was a helmet made it had metal ears and was gray , a mold was taken from this helmet(mold A) ,
    A few copys came from that mold(mold A), one was fixed up and then another mold made(*mold B)
    , the production helmets came from this mold (*mold B) a few helmets from mold A got around , some one in Australia got one of these helmets ,he made a few molds and around 5 know helmet, sold tham all on ebay (or were ever) Asok got one of these molds (Asok1 mold), the casts that came from (Asoks 1 mold) were in ruff shape, Asok cleaned one up them made a new mold(Asok 2 mold), his helmets come from that mold , Boba maker got one of the helmets from that maker in Aus he cleaned his helmet up and made a mold(BM jango mold)and his helmets come from that mold(BM Jango mold),
    A few other member have helmets from (mold A). all helmets from (mold A) and the later helmets from later mols sufer the softer arows and a few other simerlaritys how ever BM fixed the arows on his and atached the key slots (I think)

    I hope that is understandable

    All of this info has been posted on TDH by said members in there own threed so Im not revieling any hidden secrets , the early history of molds A, B, I have got from difrent threads on TDH and from a couple of people who are not members ,
    weather this info is all true or not is just here say but it makes sense.

    So intern these helmets havew direct linage to the original master that the film helmets has , in a way they are the brothers of the film helmets , and in some cases they are the nefuew of the film helmets but as there size goes they are all very close in size a few MLs difrents as the difrent maers used difrent materials but the general size is correct

    The larger one in the pics on post one , is a Cucblak Jango helmet ,

    The one selling Production Recast Jango helmets on eBay was Bentley O'toole, an Australian guy. I know about EIGHT helmets being sold by O'toole, and people only received SEVEN. I know he has also sold a few moulds copies of the helmet.

    Also, here's a pic of the "Master" with what we think are metal ears:
