Title: Public Service Announcement: HBF Recast please avoid.
Post by: Ulrik Kanteer on Jul 09, 2014, 03:16 PM
My Fellow Mandalorian Mercs,

As a member of the App team one of our biggest concerns is protecting our members from purchasing goods that will be wasting their hard earned money due to the fact that it does not meet our CRLs and is not an approvable item. We always encourage our members that when you buy a helmet that you do so within our forums because by doing this you are buying from members who will not sell a product that will be counter-productive towards building one's armor kit. As of recent it has been brought to my attention of a cast of a helmet that we want to make sure that our membership steers clear from.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Boba-Fett-Star-Wars-Costume-Cast-Resin-Full-Helmet-Kit-Costume-/301234584222?pt=US_Costumes&hash=item4622fafa9e

This helmet does not meet our qualifications for a CRL approved helmet so we ask our membership steer clear from this purchase on ebay.

If you have any questions feel free to send me a pm.

Ulrik Kanteer,
Mandalorian Mercs Personnel Officer

As an owner of an approved HBF conversion, I feel I must add... holy crap why?!  All the trouble of conversion for twice the price, and without the main benefit of the HBF conversion, lighter weight.  At least the seller doesn't claim that it's a high quality, accurate, or approvable piece.

Good call on the 'avoid this'.

That has got to be the most pathetic attempt at recasting I have ever seen

I'm wondering how long it will be before someone shows up with one of these in their WIP thread  :'(
