I think Rubie´s Helmet is a good base to work. The sizes are Right (maybe a liiiiiiiitle small, but not too much) and you will have to repaint it and change the visor. Is a good and cheap option

well, i had a rubies, and i just did not like it. i have a fiberglass boba helmet that i bought, it was a kit, and i just love it. it's made by ozprops7 from ebay....not sure if he's really reliable...but...i did get my helmet from him. its a good helmet. i've thought bout a mystery type helmet, cause it has lots of room to play with ;)

well, i saw one on ebay that was already painted, and one thing i really liked bout it was it had a dent in the side where in the arena seen jango has a dent in his helmet. its also in the visual dictionary.....i really like accuracy. :) but, i want to paint my own helmet.....its half the fun of making your Jango. ;)

That was probably SEEKER's bucket. He's the only one that I know of that has the arena dent. But, I could be mistaken. Rubies is a good place to start, but I know you have already done a Boba costume, so you don't need any practice. I don't think BKBT is still making his Jango bucket, I think it was a 1 time small run thing, but I could be mistaken. His would be my first pick. (Assuming you have a good amount of cash to work with, I don't know the price of the BKBT, but I think it would be up there.) JD makes a nice bucket aswell. There are also others. I'm sure you will get PM's or something soon. Goodluck with your Jango, I'm sure it will be fantastic, (as is your Boba!).

Shabby. But its wearable..and not as expensive..

of corse, it would have to be upgraded sometime or other. So just twiddle with it! its fun.

Yeah I think the process for the greasey weathering is something like black acrylic paint on a wet wet wet paper towel and them you dab the black onto the bucket wherever you think it should go. I've never done it though. Ask around a bit before you take the plunge. But then again, its acrylic, so you can always wash it off. Goodluck!
