You shouldn't have anything to worry about the helmet. You'll get it in a few weeks, it always takes a little while for Customs to lok through packages leaving the country.
 
no for some reason the seller thought that they were suppossed to send it to the uk, not massachusetts. I was hoping to do fett for halloween with a crash paint job+ touch it up later but i think i may have to make other plans...

I don't know how that works exactly... I had one of his, and this one, while they are very similar, this one has definitely had a bit of work done to it, and comes cleaner out of the box. The fact that its declared a Mystery Helmet pretty much sums up that nobody knows where it came from. Don't think you can really have a "domain" on a mystery. I think the MS, and BKBT Jango, are also reworked Mystery Helmets.

But thats just my opinion based from what I know about 'em... Which isn't much... lol... If I'm wrong about any of that, I'm sure that someone will correct me. Its just what I've gathered from skimming threads here on TDH.

No, no...I get your point. I guess a recast is a recast is a recast. It just seems likes some people do it better than others. Is it resin like Sarge's or some other material?

Its resin, but not like Sarges. The outside is a nice workable white resin, and the inside is a glossy black resin. I don't cast anything, so I can't give you much more info than that. You'd have to contact Protocol if you want to get anymore specific about the types.

This is a pretty sensitive issue, and it could turn into a can o worms pretty quickly. It may be a good idea to stick to the subject. Please understand, I am by no means trying to bust anyone's chops. :)

I would see no reason a different type of resin was used on the inside of that bucket. Most likely he just dyed the resin on the second or third slush to give the inside a clean black color. It appears he used Smoothcast 300 to do it. Thats what I use in most of my props and my CG helmet. Its a different resin then the SargntFang helmet is. The SC300 is a bit softer and more flexable but only enough to keep your prop from breaking easily. Similar to ABS where it can bend a little if its thick. I have dropped my CG helmets quite a number of times and they dont shatter or break eaisly. I have no clue about the properties of the resin SrgntFang uses though. The only time I was around one I came away feeling it was a bit to brittle for my taste... but JMO. :)

Thats exactly how it is... And thats the same way that I feel about it compared to the SF. Not saying that it is better, just that I personally like it better.
