    Re: Cold Cast Boba Helmets

    I have not weighed mine specifically but they are not extremely heavy. They have a good feel to them. I am at work tonight but if no one answers I will put mine on the scales tomorrow afternoon and tell you what I get.

    Ever figure out a full resin kit yet? I'll be interested in taking the "test" copy if all goes well with it.

    Got one of his Jango's and one of FP's...may need to grab one of these for the boy if he decides to scrap his lobster tail back and go with a less flexible, yet more traditional bucket. Nice to see you got the molds. Was hoping someone that did good work would and I ain't disappointed.

    Just wanted to say i got mine today and it is BEAUTIFUL!! A very clean, sturdy, lightweight cast. If any of you are on the fence about buying this, don't hesitate! It is worth it!

    Re: Cold Cast Boba Helmets

    I was surprised!! This is my first Cold Cast anything and when the metal started to appear it was like magic! Just bummed the clear coat will probably dull it a bit. Gonna use a satin clear to seal it first.

    Cutting you mean? Yeah, that will probably be the next step before any painting. I guess I am a bit nervous to do it. The plan is dremel and a very thin exacto-saw blade!

    Re: Cold Cast Boba Helmets

    Darth Veach and Jinto...very nice work on those so far

    Hey Asok, I just received my helmet today. Great work on these ! It arrived in perfect condition. I know that Chris (FP) does awesome work. I own both a budget helmet cast made by FP and now yours. I like the way that you really piled on the resin making your cast quite thicker and heavier. Nice ! Thanks for continuing on with this project and offering these to the community. And thanks to Chris (FP) for getting your mold to someone that could carry on your outstanding work. You ARE appreciated, brother. Thanks again. If you are ever down in Miami, hit me up for Hooter's Chicken wings, beer, and....ummm hooters.
