Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

I don't have a helmet but I'm working on a blastech E-11, I have to go shopping for parts though.

Nice helmet Lord Revan. How much did that end up costing you?

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

I've got a Don Post '97 that I got for free b/c it had no rangefinder antenna and a cracked visor.  I could just make a rangefinder and replace the visor, but I know you can buy good kits that have movie-accurate parts in them, and you're supposed to cut the visor out and reshape the helmet b/c its too wide.  Also, being the '97 and not the '95, its sorta flat-topped, so I may wanna try to add some material to the top then sand it into the proper dome shape.  I'm trying to wait until I can do it right, vs. just getting little things done so I can get it off my chest, haha.

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

I have a helmet, it's molded plastic and you can't see out of it, but it freaks the cat out if you wear it. Probably would scare the neighbors as well.

A month or so ago, the old man confessed to me that if we're going to Dragon Con, it has to be in Mandalorian armor. I believe I'd just walked into my kitchen after coming home from a long day at the office. No "hi dear, how was your day." Just that fierce declaration, as if I would say "no way. Totally out of the question. I will NOT have mandalorian armor in MY house." I'm not sure where he's going with this, but he's checking out the Dented Helmet so I have to think he's serious.

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

Was the first picture taken at the set of Tatooine?  Does such a place even exist?

Yep! Its the hotel Sidi Driss in Tunisia, it was the location used for the Lars homestead ( Lukes home in the ground).

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

Thats totally sweet.  What an ingenious idea.  I wonder if they made the hobbit holes in LOTR in Zealand a hotel.

This is all something else! You must travel alot Carbnitekid.

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

I think it's blasphemous. To build a hotel where just anyone can come in and do anything to such a special place is awful. Not to mention the destruction they had to have done to it in order to transform it into a hotel is unbelievable.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

You misunderstand my friend .

These places have been the traditional homes of the Berber tribes in Tunisia for many hundreds of years.
Lucas merely " borrowed" the architecture for his movies.  :

Read the last line of the wikipedia entry closely! wink

You can't trust wikis as far as you can throw them.

He's probably saying that from personal experiences as well.

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

Those were very interesting sites!  I really liked learning more about the troglodyte culture in Tunisia.  Looks like somewhere I'd like to visit, not just for the Star Wars connection.

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

Its a great country, and despite what some sites may say the natives are very freindly. Its not just Sta Wars that was filmed there either. Indiana Jones was made there as was The English Patient and The Life of Brian ( tunisia that is, not Matmata ) smile

If anyone wants any more pics just drop me a PM smile

Re: Anybody have a Fett helmet?

It's not the best fit sadly, the dome needs to be a little deeper for my fat forehead.......but oh well, it's a start.

Will try to post pics before the week is out
