Does anyone know if Asok still produces these helmets? If so, I'd PM him, but I'd not want to bother anyone without more information.Yes Asok is the GMH holder last i knew, but I was trying to give him the broad strokes of what original casts were out there, not just GMH.
I talked to FP a few weeks ago. He recently sold his GMH mold. He also stated that Asok's mold is now remade from a cast from the leased GMH mold. This would be worth looking into, but as stated above, there are other options. I picked up a few animefan buckets a while back, and I can say without any doubt theyre top notch with a fair turnaround.ASOK is still around. But I'd look at all options first. The GMH is a little small, and was originally a PP2 lid. Personally I'd recommend you read more and talk to FP, Asok and Animefan for all the available options.
So nothing gets lost in translation, not leased actually. This is just an FYI to the rest of the membership for clarification.I talked to FP a few weeks ago. He recently sold his GMH mold.

It's not a problem at all, Matt. You weren't overstepping or anything like that. I just like to be thorough lolThanks for the clarification Chris. Had I known you would be johnny on the spot with a response, I would have let you address the question in leui of my comment.
wow thanks for catching that would have been a nightmare !That is the notorious recaster Slartblartifast.......along with probably a dozen other names. He buys quality helmets and then recasts them and sells them. Everyone I have ever heard that had one says they are horrible sloppy casts.
When I decided I wanted to build a Boba Fett Costume the first thing I did was purchase the helmet. BIG MISTAKE! I wish I would have known this forum existed before my purchase. I purchased the GMH Cold Cast from Class.of.1984 on ebay and there is a lot of work to be done. However it is not so bad that I want to return it. I would rather take the time and build the skills on this first time helmet and use them for my next build. I am fortunate however that even now after doing the research I accidently picked the GMH and still would have purchased a GMH casting. However it would have been from FP. So...with all that being said, I may start a new thread and post the issues with this "re-cast" and show my progress pictures.Nice is this a fake Grant McCune Helmet ? Its Listed as cold cast, the one here is resin cast ?
Offering a 100% refund on the quality of the item ?
Have the GMH helmets improved that much ?
