    Dec 4, 2010, 7:26 AM - Cheap Jango helmet #1

    Hi, I wanna get a nice, good looking Jango helmet to reskin to look like my avatar for a reasonable price. I have seen two on Amazon, the first is the one piece Jango Fett Collectors Star Wars Helmet by Rubies for $49.89, and the other is the two piece Star Wars Jango Fett mask also by Rubies for $32.00. I think i should go for the one piece, but what do you guys think? Is there any helmets you guys recommend? Please help.

    well basicly depends on cost if you dont want to spend over 50 bux the rubies is they are smaller than the real lids by a sizable amount but if you are a smaller or younger person they would do there not the best by a long shot there actualy the worst if you dont count the rubies boba fett helmet,
    The 1 peice is a vynil sub staght that can warp easily ans d the 2 peice is a ridgid plastic which has a better look but youd need to fix up the seam and make shore not to get the 2 peice kids size coz there not gret at all but your best bet is spending a bit more some fan made helmets start at 100 all the to 350 unpainted do some resurch dont by of ebay unless u know exactly what the product isbest bet is to by from here in the cargo hold but no one here will sell the rubies but therer is alwasy a few good lids going in the cargo hold threed do your resarch and dont rush in to buying

    yeah contact Asok. You will spend a little more and be happy instead of spending less and working your butt off then never getting something that meets expectations. Remember the rubies are basically toys.

    also the rubies helmets are small.

    Let you parents know what you are doing, and then start saving some more money. If you are 14 then you have plenty of time......might as well do it right.

    So if I get the 2 piece how do I seal it together? Oh and by the way I've heard other members talking about kits, And this may sound like a stupid question but what is a kit?

    kit is an unfinished, fan made helmet like people have suggested. kit helmets usually start at 100 USD and go higher from there.
