I think the names comes from the one line in the movies that Ben Kenobi says when he's talking about the jedi to Luke in a New Hope.
Back on topic,I think i'd look better with an actual antenna instead of it painted on. Kinda impractical for a motorcycle helmet i guess.

You are right it is from A new hope, just after Luke has met up with Obi Wan and they are talking at his wee home.

The antenna would look funky but not only would it be impractical but depending on what it is made of it could be dangerous.

I know this is completely off topic, but that's also where Dark Horse Comics get the title for one of the series they're currently doing, "Star Wars: Dark Times."  Takes place between Episodes III and IV and covers the "dark times" that Kenobi refers to.  But, that's for another thread.

Re: cool Boba motorcycle helmet!

That is off-topic, and therefor spam.

I'll probably try to get one of the helmets eventually.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: cool Boba motorcycle helmet!

WOW--oh yeah I'd definitely want the Boba one!  Even the grey/red Mando version is too cool!  Add some flames to the skull and someone could pretend to be Ghost Rider lol  Those are great!

Re: cool Boba motorcycle helmet!

Wow, glad to see this topic is still rolling along!  I go by VG here, but this is FETT from beforethedarktimes.com-  And yes, those of you who posted that the name of the site is from ANH, you are dead-on!  As for comparing the name to Harry Potter, I think Harry's got the one-up on being a "bit" more cheezy    big_smile

The Boba cycle helmet has definitely generated alot of interest, especially since mine (the one in the pics) was the first one ever done!  One of the folks here (whom I think goes by Jaster Mereel ) is waiting eagerly for his as we speak..  it went out last week to him and I'm pretty sure it went by air mail, so he should have it at anytime.  Can't wait to hear his thoughts, as I've owned mine for over a year now and can't bring myself to wear it while riding!!  It's too sweet!

If anyone has questions about the helmet or anything at all, feel free to ask- I'm always lurking   big_smile

I'm always glad to help bring the "inner rider" out from within others lol.  It's a great hobby as long as you're CAREFUL!!

Re: cool Boba motorcycle helmet!

Well I'm into Dirtsports so I think I can handle a street bike. They look like so much fun!

Funny thing is I HAVE a bike, and can't even bring myself to wear MINE while riding  big_smile  It's too much of a work of art.  The idea came to me while visiting a car show in Baltimore MD..  A guy had a huge display of helmets painted like the Terminator Endoskeleton, Predator, Comic Book characters, and a ton of other great stuff- even the visors were painted! But alas, no SW..   I was like, "man a FETT helmet would simply kick @$$.."  the rest is History..

They really are- the only thing I recommend prior to buying one is learning every back and secondary road you can find near your home or work.  It's simply not worth it today to ride on the main roads and highways... too many folks are doing any of the following while driving: texting, talking on the phone, drinking, doing drugs, yelling at their kids, watching DVD players, the list goes on...  It pays to know the roads less traveled..

Re: cool Boba motorcycle helmet!

VG--great job on the helmet! I too would like to get a bike (well, my BICYCLE I put miles and miles on anyway...LOL) but a motorcycle would be great for me to commute to work and home--really save on gas and it's only 20 miles one way.  That helmet would be another reason to ride!! lol
I just recently took an airbrushing class up in Chicago, so I'm hoping to one day put my talents to use like that.
