Hi everyone,

I am new in the forum and I was wondering if anyone has try to fix the MR helmet T visor issue. I have one MR Boba Fett helmet for quite some time but I always have been hesitant to commit this change.

Any leads to tutorials are appreciate it

Cheers

The only method that has been done is actually cutting the mandible to physically move it. And those threads no longer have pictures so they wouldn’t be of much help. So really, unless you want to do it blindly, you’ll have to deal with it /:

Another thing I could think of is sand it down a little bit and then glue a piece of metal on each side of the mandible to physically keep them separated. But that would end up ruining the inside material.

I’ll just keep my MR up on the shelf as a collectible

I think a will let it stay as it is, I also do not want to loose its collector value and after a lot of thinking I don't want to ruin it. I always can get a new lid from a different maker I guess. Thanks for the info.

Cheers

If the pinch bothers you that much I suggest selling the helmet in mint condition. Then buying a helmet kit and commissioning it. You’ll come out even but have a much better display piece for an ESB hero than you do now with the PP3 helmet MR made.

It is a possibility, no doubt but I think I will keep it anyway and get a new one in the future

Cheers!

I did the fix to my MR helmet. I cut into the side of the helmet from the corner of the visor almost all the way around to the back and forced the whole side of the helmet up and over. There are some pics here: Master Replicas Fett Helmet... Revised - Brian Anderson

The paint job was ruined by this, but I was planning to convert to ROTJ anyway. I ended up molding the helmet and casting a copy to wear. I used the ears and stalk from the original on the casting.

The original was sacrificed in the process.

I can't tell you how many times I looked at that album years ago!
