    Oct 12, 2008, 11:40 PM - My crack at the Hasbro Clone Helmet #1

    At the more than appropriate suggestion of Cruzer.... I have started this new thread

    Well, you have all inspired me and frightened me at the same time! However, I have now started the design of my "bounty hunter" using the Hasbro Clone Helmet as my base. When you see my initial picture, most of you will know where I got my ispiration from. I even have a back story as to why the helmet will look like it will. I do plan on adding accoutrements to it, but am as of yet, undecided as to what and where.

    Secondly, the armor will be a hybrid as well, much like the helmet.

    So, let me know what you think and I will GLADLY take any suggestions. Keep in mind, it is just the initial planning stage and I have yet to come up with a color scheme etc.

    That being said, I also want to thank everyone for just being open to let those of us out here try something non-canon. It really has made all the difference in me finally wanting to try something new!

    I have come up with a color scheme. Complete with distressing... Though as you all know, that could change as things progress. Still have yet to decide on the accoutrements though.

    Let me know what you think!

    Well I like it. It'll be interesting to see how this comes across in a real build. Especially those green mandables that run over the frown and down the chin.

    I do think though that it may be a nightmare to wear with such a narrow "T-visor"??

    The visor may need to be opened up, but I will see once I get it cut and play around with it. When I have all the materials, I'll post an image. Its gonna take me a while to gather what I need, as I'm on a budget. At the very least, it'll be a fun try!

    I hear ya, my custom Mando goes through changes as I go. It's part of the process I think. I'm sure you'll love it! I've loved every minute of working on my Custom, it's hard work but well worth it!

    That looks sweet! I really like to see the clone helmets reworked into something amazing.

    Will this be a Mandalorian bounty hunter, or just your standard scum-and-villainy type? Either way, I'd like to extend an invite to come check out the Mandalorian Mercs forums, where custom creations are not only allowed, but wholeheartedly welcomed and encouraged.

    I can't wait to see more progress on this! Every build-up thread I see makes me want to get one of these helmets and do my own. Too many projects....

    It will be a former clone captain, gone bounty hunter. Fortunately, there is precedent for that so I don't feel I've gone too far afield.

    So, whatever happened with this project? Any progress? Or did Imperials ransack the workshop?
