    So I picked this up off ebay for $127 shipped. It's not perfect, but is it passable?
    Previous owner used it for costuming.
    It is solid fiberglass, and the face and dome are permanently attached. It also is wired with two mini fans, and battery pack, as well as a hard hat liner.
    I know it at least needs proper lenses, tusks, and the chin grill needs to be fixed.
    Other than that what do you guys think? Was it a decent purchase? 15458850438251104386337.jpg 1545885146493291056351.jpg 1545885223203868746766.jpg

    It looks mostly good. A great purchase at that price for sure.
    I’d probably try to separate and reposition the dome, then regroup and go from there.

    Hi, I have the same helmet as my profile picture, though mine might be little older by a year or two. It originates from Sith planet it is passable to my knowledge though not accurate.

    Are you sure? The chin area on mine was definitely over cut and a bit sloppy.

    Yup, same with mine; yours is a newer version than mine but made by same person. The one I took I used angle and natural light to give it a good shot. But when you look at it normally they are the same. Though yours is more warped.

    You got a good price on this helmet. Any more and it woukld be to much.

    It looks like vader but that's it. It is very warped when compared to a screen cast. But it boils down to what you like. If you're ok with it that's all that matters. I know the desire to get other people's approval and to show off but at the end of the day you're the only one seeing it on a day to day basis. Enjoy your new piece.

    Also good job on the chin work, enjoy the new babe!
