Topic: Helmet Dent

What do you think caused the big dent in Boba Fett's helmet?

Personally I like to imagine it was a close shave with a missle. big_smile

Re: Helmet Dent

I don't know that would be cool though, I think Jango got it from somwhere actually.

Re: Helmet Dent

I believe Darth Vader did it in Enemy of The Empire with the but of his saber when they were fighting over a box with a living head in it, but I'm not entirely sure. Here's the comic.:D
Enemy of The Empire 4 to be exact, you can see Vader about to hit him with the but of his saber.

That is the best part on family guy "no way, ill trade all may star wars guys if it isn’t, wait except Boba Fett no matter how sure I am I never trade the Fett man".

Re: Helmet Dent

That does not have anything to do with this topic, Boba_Fett.

I think that he might have done it himself in his younger days, so more would-be employers would think that he is an experianced mercenary.

Re: Helmet Dent

jango fett got one i think from bing trampled by the reek, and boba did repaint jango's armour, either that or it is usual in mandalorian armour.


here is a pic of jango's dent:    http://www.cyberzeus.com/swdesktop/wall … linger.jpg

Re: Helmet Dent

jango actually got his helmet dent in the battle with obi wan on kamino.  or maybe he banged his head inside the slave 1.  either way, if you look closely in episode 2, near the beginning the arena battle, he puts the helmet on right before he tried to barbecue mace windu.  it's already got the dent at that point.

Re: Helmet Dent

Boba used Jaster's armor, not Jango's. He did use Jango's armor while he was younger, however.

Re: Helmet Dent

He used Jaster's armor? I always thought he used Jango's. Where did you get that info?

Re: Helmet Dent

I heard the same thing but I can't remember where.

Re: Helmet Dent

It makes sense though cuz Boba has the chest emblem that was on Jaster's ship.

Re: Helmet Dent

Also, Boba's armor is colored the same as Jaster's.

Re: Helmet Dent

Well I re-read Enemy of the Empire and it was definatly Vader, he deflects one of Fett's blaster bolts back at him and it hits his helmet causing the dent.:D
Or you could believe this.

Re: Helmet Dent

I don't think it happened in Enemy of the empire.  Look at the cover of the comic book itself, it clearly shows Boba's dent in his helmet.

I'm sure you can find something with Boba in it, with the dent, before the fight with vader in that comic book.

Re: Helmet Dent

Yeah, it must've happened in the Boba Fett series or after them.

Re: Helmet Dent

it happens when he is younger if you take into consideration the junior novels, i dont know if they are canon, but on the cover of book 6 they have him with the dent and yes its on OT picture but they deffinitly mention hm getting his mando armor

Re: Helmet Dent

If you read Enemy of the Empire, throughout the book there is no dent, then where Fett and Vader are fighting, on one page you see Fett with no dent on the next you see Vader deflect the shot, the shot hits his helmet and you see smoke coming from a distinct dent. If I had a scaner I'd show you, I'll see what I can find on the net.

Re: Helmet Dent

A friend of mine thinks a fan-girl did it trying to knock him out.

But yea, I heard he wore Jaster's armor as well. Can't remember where that's located at all.

Re: Helmet Dent

jango could have got his dent from kaminoe,  just as he went into the slave 1 the door closes and you hear a metal on metal clang

Re: Helmet Dent

It has nothing to do with Jango's helmet cuz we allready decided Boba wears Jaster's armor.

For god's sake he does not wear Jaster's armor there is a reason that Jango Fett was invented and there is a reason he has the dent in the same place that we see Boba's dent in ESB. Anyways I always thought the reek had stepped on his helmet but now I'm not so sure. Maybe when his jetpack exploded on Kamino, the side of the platfrom hit it.

Re: Helmet Dent

jango's dent doesn't perfectly line up with boba's, but since george went to the trouble of making sure jango had a dent in his helmet, that's good enough for me.  to quote yul brenner, "so let it be written, so let it be done."

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Re: Helmet Dent

Then why does Boba's armour have the same marking as Jasters?

I'm smiling because they havn't found the bodies yet. :)

Re: Helmet Dent

Also, in a semi-canon Tales comic, when Boba's usual armor is stolen, he uses Jango's.
