Title: A question regarding a bucket for a Late Crusader armor.
Post by: mandalorianelite555 on Jun 18, 2016, 11:27 AM
Hello everyone My name is Sander,
After having this acount for a lot of years, I finally decided to actually become a Mando haha.
I created this account as a kid because I always dreamed about being a Mando, but I never did anything with this acount haha because I didn't even know anything about cosplaying in general, but now with two years of cosplay experience, I finally decided I really want to join the Elite. I will be joining Clan Diryc Vhetin if all goes well because I live in the Netherlands.

But now on to my question, I really want to do a Late Crusader armor because I am a big fan of the KOTOR timeline I've played the games and have the entire comic collection from KOTOR in my book case haha. So you could say I am a KOTOR nut haha. Mostly because there are so many and diverse Mandalorians within the KOTOR timeline. So I'd love to do a Late Crusader armor, I'd also want to do a Neo Crusader in the future but for my first kit I'd like to do a Late Crusader.

Now my question is regarding a helmet, I'm a big fan of the first Ralph McQuarrie Boba Fett concept helmet. And similar helmets can be seen in the KOTOR comics, and some even in the SWTOR game, now I have a file of a Rako Hardeen helmet, as seen in the Clone Wars, but I was wondering am I allowed to use that helmet for a Late Crusader armor? I'll be of course giving the helmet a different color scheme and I won't be using the antenna/rangefinder. I'd really love to start working on the helmet in pepakura form as soon as possible.
So please let me know if I can use this helmet.

And a picture of a simular helmet in the KOTOR comics.

I hope to hear from you all soon and thanks in advance.

Kind regards, Sander de Boer.

hi sander, welcome to the mercs. if you look in the helmets section there is a list and i believe it does say you can use the mquarrie proto fett v1 for both a late crusader or a modern kit.

Thanks for the tip Jett,

I'm kinda new to all this haha, I'll definitely check out the Helmet section.
I heard the McQuarrie v1 helmet was usable for a late crusader armor but since this one was a variation used in the clone wars I wanted to check, I just want to know for sure I can use this to become a OM haha.
