    Anyone have a tutorial to customizing a Riddell mini Boba Fett helmet into a Jango. IÂ’m looking to do one myself and any help would be greatly appreciated. I think there is someone on this board who did do a custom a few years back.

    Wouldn't you just repaint it blue and silver?

    Forgot about the dent... Well actually it depends when the helmet is from. Didn't Jango get the dent part way through AOTC?

    jangos dent is on the back of the helmet if i remember correctly, maybe side back, and is more oval rather than bobas round one on the front,

    i think he got it when he was firing on mace in the arena. i think one of the bolts spanged off his noggin, hence the dent.

    its been so long since i watched the film though, i dunno.

    i would agree with the fixing solution though. bondo the dent, then paint it blue and gray, and you have a jango helm.

    Yeah, he hit his head walking up the ramp of Slave I.

    ...although that must be a wimpy helmet because he didn't hit it that hard.

    I always thought Jango got the dent after headbutting Obi-Wan on Kamino..

    One scene it's there, but the next it's not.

    BTW, that scene was cut from the UK version.
