As I'm sure many of you do, I frequent eBay for Fett things because every once in a while you find a gem (and because I missed out on buying an MR helm for $500 buy it now - grrrrrrr!)
Well today I was making my morning pass while at work and this listing caught my eye...
Listing No.: 121134813270
This helmet is clearly titled and described as being a Malone Fett, which has as of late had a little drama associated with it from what I understand. But in looking closer at this helmet I'm pretty positive it's not a MF.
If you look at the visor area it sort of bows out wider toward the middle, which sort of reminded me of the RS helmet, making me think this is some sort of MR Proto helmet. Other give-aways look to be the cheeks, as if you look at the MF on ebay currently it has a curvature to the bottom of the cheek, and the dome on this particular helmet looks too smooth to be an MF.
Strangely enough the seller did not show pictures of the back of the helmet, and as I'm sure alot of us know, the MF has a droopy band on the rear of the helmet and the keyslots do show some deformity.
Anyway, just wanted to get your guys take on this and pass this off as a warning in case anyone was looking at this helmet. Don't get me wrong, this is a GORGEOUS helmet compared to what's normally found on eBay, but I don't think it's quite what it is being advertised as...
Anyone know this seller or recognize this helmet?
