    Small update... got a nice big one tomorrow!
    An elegant weapon deserves an elegant display chest ��

    I found this vintage jewelry box on eBay and thought it looked similar (but smaller) to Obi's chest in ANH.

    It needs a little TLC and work, but all and all pretty happy with it as a new display piece for my real parts Obi...

    (Don't know who to credit for the Obi chest photo so if anyone knows please let me know).

    Over a year in the making. Going to take the day off and wait at the window for the mail?

    The chest looks great! A much more manageable size than mine.

    That does indeed look like the OWK/ Superman chest.

    As a wise old puppet once said... "once you start down the dark path forever will it something, something, something...."

    I never had any intention of branching off to collect and build anything other than lightsaber hilts...

    Then, it started off small with this:

    My SL ANH Vader helmet

    There are a lot more people that are way more knowledgeable about these things than I am so I'm sure someone will chime in if I have anything wrong, but as I understand it, the MDF has lineage to what is known as the Pre-Production Two (PP2) ESB Fett helmet.

    The PP2 was never used on screen, but it was used in all of the ESB promos - it was the helmet that was pictured on the Kenner Fett action figure card - and was used as the basis for the Don Post Fett helmets back in the day.

    The MDF is derived from the original 'holy grail' of Fett helmets, the MF or Malone Fett helmet, which was a direct cast of the original PP2. The MDF, or the Malone Day Fett, is a cleaned up version of the MF as there was damage/issues with that original source cast; something about it being pulled too early.

    That's what I've been able to glean about it in a nutshell....

    I've never gotten anything from RS before, but I have to say, the folder and the certificate are a nice touch....
