I finally received my RS Boba Fett Lineage helmet kit last night and I must say that I am extremely happy with the whole kit and the aluminum ears are awesome.
I’ll be going over the whole kit more closely today, but through the little baggies, all looks good. The fiberglass work on the helmet is nice and even, which I will be leaving as is or perhaps paint with plastidip.
I’m leaving this as an “archive” piece in my collection so I won’t be painting it. The stand and plaque was also a great surprise addition!

My only disappointment is that I didn’t know that buying the aluminum ears replaced the resin ears that was promised with the kit.
I didn’t like that this was not clarified, since in a couple of my emails, I expressed wanting to have the resin ears.
My display idea was to have the resin ears mounted on the helmet while the aluminum ears along with replica and original parts for the helmet would be displayed in a shadow box. I’m still hoping to do this, but I’m waiting for a response from RS Studios to my email of what can be arranged to get the resin ears.

The Season 2 helmet is a completely different sculpt than the ESB helmet. There are a ton of differences. Sure, you could commission someone to paint the RS kit as the Mando version, but it will be totally wrong.
Yes but don´t forget...the EFX is the ESB version from 1980...that is not the look of the helmet today.They upgraded some details for the SE scenes.I agree the efx looks surprisingly good, but the RS has more subtle weathering in areas that are pretty clean on the efx.
The right ear is quite a bit taller on the RS.
