    Jodo Kast Keyslots different?

    So I was reading Twin Engines of Destruction, and at the end, Jodo Kast's Helmet comes off with a sequence of button presses on a keypad on the back of his helmet- Is this something The Jodo Customers do with their helmets?

    Jodo Kast 3 I'm looknig mostly at you, but I know there's a few other good Kast's out there.

    A sealed helmet? cool. Someone around here made some sort f fabric layer at the opening of there jango helmet to hide the skin of the neck and to look like it was a sealed suit. Can't remember who though. But he didn't have buttons, and that was for Jango...

    Do you have a pic?

    Well yeah, sealed, but I mean the keyslots on the back of Kast's helmet are drawn in a way that makes them different from Boba Fett's.

    Here's an attachment showing what I means

    Looks like there's a new mod for the Jodo's to work on.

    Here's another shot, plus a guantlet surprise I don't think I've ever seen anyone try.

    Looks like there's a couple new mods for the Jodo's to work on.

    Yup...

    Its a tough mod for sure. This is what the back of my helmet looks like:


    Would I have liked to go with the squares on the back of my helmet?...Yes. Can I still...? Yes. But all in all I considered it a minor deviation that only a few of us notice. I think once I am done with my curent project, I might go back and make the back of my helmet look more to that shot...minus the red...UGGGHHH!!!!

    You know what might work I just thought of for the keyhole mod that would make it more like Jodo's, is probly cutting even squares of red plastic, like semi-shiny red plastic, and putting them over the regular slots. Perhaps you can make a removable strip that you can take on and off from the regular slots. Just an idea.

    I'd never noticed that keypad on the back of Jodo's bucket in the comics-how cool. I'll end up digging out that comics later and will definitely take a closer look. It just looks like a keypad, no? I wouldn't think that'd be rocket science to change, but I'm not sure I'd want to go changing a finished helmet for the same reasons Jodo stated. Plus I'd mess things up and would have to repaint-again. And yes that was a lesson I learned the hard way and won't be soon to repeat it...

    I was thinking of something like these for them:

    Or something like the lighted keys you see in old Sci-Fi for keypads on the computers, with the lighted pushbuttons (like the deathstar controls and stuff) but I haven't had any luck tracking them down on ebay because I don't know what they are called.

    Yes I am sure. I get those for school projects, and they are about a dollar a piece. So yeah I'm sure.
