Helmet and armour purchased in Australia


I just purchased this helmet and armour from a guy over here in Australia. I paid US $300 in total for the helmet and armour which I figured was a pretty good deal, since it also came with led chest display, gloves and wookie braids.

The armour is a mix of fibreglass and abs pieces (back pieces not shown in photo) and the helmet is fibreglass. The flash on my camera has affected the colours a little but I was fairly happy with the purchase.

However since reading these forums I'm starting to wonder about the origin of the helmet because I suspect it may be a recast. Given the depth of knowledge on these forums, I would grateful to hear some of your opinions.

Nice score man! I Don't know much about Altmann's buckets, But I believe he was out of Australia. So, yours might be an original.

While I agree altmans are decent helmets, I don't think I would prefer the altmanns over the SGTfang, MLC or MSH. Couple things that bother me about it are the visor squaring off/not going further like that. Something about the dome is starting to bother me too.

That doesn't look like an Altmann's to me. The mandibles are too far apart. Altmann's have a very narrow "nose". Yours also seems to have a different flare.

I can't remember, but it's either an Altmann's or DP Deluxe recast. Overall, it doesn't look too bad (dent is a bit large though). You could re-paint the armor to get it more screen accurate, but for the price I think you did well.

I agree, the dent is certainly too big.

I thought a couple more pictures might help give you a better idea of the general shape of the bucket...
