Thanks guys.

Looking at it the left is slightly higher than the right... Might be the lighting though. Ill check the dome again tommorow.

While I am on the subject, I think it would be nice to have a shot of a screen helmet included with the line up for comparisons sake. I think it is fascinating seeing them all side by side. I never realized how many ROTJ helmets there were out there. :eek

Interesting suggestion with the original helmet in the list.

Just found that I need to add a lot of new helmets too... may take a while to get things updated though. :ac10

Yeah, I was just thinking that if we had shots with the right angle - and in this group I know we do - it would make an fun comparison. Anyway, just a thought...

It's interesting to see the DJ next to the original. It looks like the face mask on the DJ is mounted crooked--something that had always seemed off subconsciously--shift it back to the left slightly and it'd be perfect!

I hope we can get pictures of some of the stragglers up.

Thanks for the great reference material :)

Yeah I'm glad to see the original prop pics up, helps a lot.

I agree about the DJ. Anybody know what paints were used on it? :lol The dome finish looks almost dead on to me. I'd be interested to know the process used.

There's not really only one way to mount the dome for ANH, as it was all over the place because of the tab system, so it all depends on what picture is chosen.

Yeah... hope to get more pictures.

Think I'm gonna go bug Jez about the possibility of getting a watermark-free picture of the MP... just for the list. :cheers

Well... the best way to learn is to ask him, as he is a member of this board. I also think there's a thread about his helmet somewhere... try check it out... it may be mentioned there already.

Sorry, I guess I should have been a little more specific, I was thinking about that particular photo of the DJ in the helmets list. The way the face sits within the dome in that photo makes the left hand side of the neck look more flat than usual and skews everything to the right just a subtle amount. Seeing it next to the hero helmet made me realize how much such a subtle difference can affect "the look".

Anywho, just a casual observation,

Dave

Ah... my mistake. :dope Yeah... the DJ has more of the ESB Poster helmet neck profile than the hero prop.
