    I am having trouble understanding a little? If you bought the molds and they are legally yours and the guy has told you that you can use them for profit then I personally don't see why you cannot make them and sell them. I don't think anyone else will tell you any different.:) (Could be wrong though)

    I look forward to seeing your Boba Helmets when you make them.:)

    Make them!:lol

    Nobody can say anything about the helmet and its legitimacy ust from looking at a mold.

    You will have to cast a helmet, then post pictures of it, then have people look at it to see if it is a recast or not.
    If it is a recast, off of another Boba Fett helmet, you of course cannot sell it here, contrary to what StevenRogers84 wrote.

    If the guy really built his own helmet by making a sculpt and then molding it, then that is a different thing.

    You may want to visit Boba Fett Costume Resource - Boba Fett News & Articles for more information on Boba Fett helmets.

    Michael, his English is not all that great, so I am taking the liberty, to be sure he understood you.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Traduccion de lo que dijo Michael :



    Nadie puede pronunciarse sobre el caso o su legitimidad simplemente con mirar el molde.

    Tendras que moldear uno, tomarle fotos, y dejar que la gente aqui te diga si es un recast o no.

    Si es un recast de un casco que hizo alguien (no arte original), no puedes venderlo aqui, a pesar de lo que escribio stevenrogers84.

    Si la persona del cual lo compraste realmente esculpio un casco y lo moldeo, entonces eso es diferente.

    Podras visitar "Boba Fett Costume Resource - Boba Fett News & Articles" para mas informacion sobre los cascos Fett.

    I didn't know... I am sorry if I caused any confusion it seemed to me that he was saying in his first post that the guy he bought it off made it?...Again sorry if I gave the wrong advice it wasn't intentionally done.

    thanks I'll do that as you receive it would make me a copy for me and post photos and give me your opinion I really like this forum and I do not prefer to be a recast sure.
    the salesman told me that if that was his and that could make copies and sell them. but come from words to action is another step

    While I can't be certain, that looks like a mold of a Don Post helmet. If it is, that same helmet has been recast and sold a million times over already, so while you COULD sell copies, that market is pretty saturated and there are much better helmets out there.

    *, I initially thought that there MIGHT be someone who could identify the helmet by just looking at the mould, but then I discarded that thought as too fantastic.
    In the meantime I received several messages from various people telling me that they witnessed Art do that same feat without even looking at a mold, but just being in the same room with it. I think that his powers have multiplied since those days...

    Hi guys, i am Madrid Boba helping susje00 to write this post.

    The guy that sold him the molds, send him this message...

    "Hi, is individual custom design mould, so no problem selling painted finished helmets as I had planned.
    Deb" Ebay registered under koochy3k

    What do you think that he should do? I read that he should do one first helmet, and then post the pics so you guys can find out who the maker could be.....

    I told him to do so.

    Regards

    Alfredo

    Like custom built cars. You buy the parts and put them together.

    Like what we nearly all do with our props and displays, except if we buy already completed, finished and painted.

    Like Art said, possibly a Don Post. Or maybe even a Mystery bucket recast? Those were popular to see on ebay for a while there. Tough to tell though, I haven't seen many Fett helmets with built-in ears made anymore.

    Cast it up, then someone will definitely be able to tell. :thumbsup
