Looks good Ceric! Post some photos of your mods on this helmet. I have been thinking of doing some mods on mine as well. Adding some Commander yellow paint and mayhap some battle wear as well. Keep us posted on your mods and I will do the same!
Cant Wait to Mod Mine. I wish they Would make Republic Commando Helmets
I'm actually thinking of picking up two of these things, now... one ot leave as-is, the otehr to mod and repaint to use as an alternate for my mando.
The photoshopping makes it look pretty sweet!
Just remember that these are not very accurate and require work. They are like the DPs of the clone helmets. Off the shelf they look just plain wrong, but with a lot of love you can make it look pretty decent and be able to pull it off.
I'm new to the forum, but have been watching this site for a long time, and again i'm glad i finnaly joined. This site and its members have helped me make some very cool costumes. I was wandering about these helmets as alot of times there junk but after seeing it here i think i can re tool it and have it look great thanks again
the helmet now is 24.99 at Target
Got mine yesterday...very cool!
It looks cool and has a working light!! but it will come out October 16 so it's kind of a long wait. I haven't seen anything on the blue one yet though.
where is that one at
Wow that acutally looks really good. How would you fix the width of the visor though?
WOW!!! You say the light really works?!? That is awesome!!! I'm gonna get one, rip off the light, and stick it on my bucket! To bad they don't come out till October.
Does the one with the light have a voice changer?
It looks like it has the voice changer on that helmet too because the buttons are also present.
I've got one of these and I'm in the middle of modding it myself (see it here). I think there are great possibilities with this bucket - much like how many have successfully modded the Rubies and DP into workable Fett and Mando helms.
I just got one of these to mod.
I'm seriously thinking on picking up one of these to mod and use as an Arc trooper.
Hopefully after I've recouped some of my costs after FanExpo, I'll finally get one.
heres one iam doing for my wife ill post more later
The red one I showed earlier is a Commander Fox Target exclusive coming out in OCTOBER!
Anyone seen or heard anything on the blue 501st one from Walmart?
i just got one myself and plan on reworking it. without any work its still a cool helmet
Here you can see the blue helmet and red helmet in the handbook.
Would it possible to use some kind of one way decal or something on the visor? I know that on motor bike helmet visors they use something that they can put on the visor that still lets them see out. That way you would still have the improved visibility of this bucket, I'm presuming this is why that made it how it is.
They don't ship overseas!!!
Not that I want a clone helmet though, I was more interested in their FX lightsabers! :o
