    MR Prototype Helmet

    This is the last of the pieces I am clearing out; a first gen casting of the MR Prototype helmet... an interesting piece of Fett helmet history. Much like the MR itself, but more clean and crisp and most importantly, cast without the infamous pinched visor area. Because the MR dent was oversized, I filled it and was turning this into a PP1... but alas, it will never be finished, at least not by me. It comes as you see it. There are slight pressure cracks at the edges of the visor (as there are on almost all of the original Fett helmets, and without ears. It does have a MQ-1 casting epoxied into the keyslots. Add a visor and ears and this helmet is ready to paint/wear. Asking $350 shipped for this piece.

    Re: MR Prototype Helmet

    What material is this cast in (glass/slush)? What did you use to fill the dent (bondo/epoxy)? How about a pic or two of the pressure cracks (difficult to see in the main pic)? Did you acquire the MQ-1 and attach it yourself?

    Very interested...

    It is fiberglass. The dent is filled with bondo.

    The MQ-1 is a casting of my personal MQ-1 (the same one used on the final MR helmet).

    Will try to grab a couple more pics.

    No sir. The EFX helmet is it. This is just the last helmet I have left to get rid of from my big spring cleaning earlier this year. I am down to just a pair of helmets now!
