    Is that the same helmet with the strange shaped/square ears that look foamish?

    My best guess is some type of poly... but I am not a plastics person. It definitely appears to have a lot more flex and give than the vacced or fiberglass pieces.

    Yeah, I'm sure that's why it was used for the Slave costume. If it's discovered what was used that could lead to some better Slave costumes, or at least more comfortable.

    Just realized, that is the jumpsuit we see on display at the Magic of Myth Exhibit! It has the same warm tone and has the same stain markings.

    Maybe hot melt vinyl? Some of the armor worn by Gene Simmons of KISS in the 90's and probably today, was made from it as it was more comfortable to wear than the Kydex used in the 70's. Apparently, you can vac form it just like ABS or styrene.

    Hey Gonk27, got your PM. Thank you.

    And for everyone....finally got around to visiting Bob Yerkes today. He is more than happy to let me scan any/all photos he has of the filming of "Return of the Jedi". He not only did the Boba Fett in flight shot, but also several falls into the Sarlac Pit and Endor scenes.

    Check back every once in a while. Cheers everyone !!!
