Anyone received the Black Series Boba Fett Rearmored/Repaint?

Din stated something among the lines that his beskar would only hold Fennec’s rifle fire from long distance. Even in the last episode it was stated that only beskar could pierce beskar.

I would assume that beskar is pretty damn strong but not impervious to some higher caliber rifles, beskar weapons, etc

But we watched Mando walk into Stormtrooper blaster fire and heavy machine gun fire with no damage in the last episode of season 2

It could well be a red herring. Maybe the dent was deliberately added to the shape during the forging / moulding process to make any opponent believe that the material of the helmet was not Beskar but some ordinary metal which could be damaged easily. So Boba was seen as less dangerous as he really was - until someone tried to hit and smash the metal.

Bobas helmet was Jangos and there wasn't a dent . Boba said it was beskar when he took it back from Mando

I dunno man - about the colors...

Maybe Hasbro did nail the true ESB color

Ya know - we collect original props, replicate props, and visit film locations to say, "Holy **** - so THAT'S what it really looks like...!"

The BS ESB green looks too dark in person, but in imagery, it looks dead on....

One of reasons I lean towards the green being more correct on the efx pcr is because Fett4reals_1313_studios had access to colors and images we don’t have in order to paint the prototype for efx.

Even the images we have of the ESB hero (the second image of just the helmet is a stunt helmet) the lighting messes with what we have.

I thought Dinn's armor was pure beskar where as most Mandalorian armor is an alloy; so might explain it denting but still being called Beskar. I also thought the dent happened from the big bull in the arena fight in Attack of the Clones. Though I know there was a deleted scene from Clone Wars where it was going to be from a direct hit from Cad Bane un a duel.

Who ******* ROCKS, BTW...!!!

I always tended to screen accuracy over movie accuracy.
We all know that the original prop can be slightly different from what we saw on screen for several factors ( Distortion, light etc…)
I wasn’t on the set, so my own references are what I saw on screen.
And I’m in this hobby to find back the emotions of what I saw on screen.
So from this point of view we can say that Hasbro amazingly did the job for a ridiculous price.

What's the story behind the shot with the helmet being worked on?

Isn't correct that the black scaring around the yellow kill stripes were post-production damage?
