The more expensive Taiwan Fetts have a blue painted helmet like this one.

By no means do all of the overpriced Taiwan Fetts have a blue painted helmet though. Fett has always been relatively expensive compared to other figures, mostly due to his popularity and the long-standing existence and proliferation of Fett-focus collectors artificially driving up prices. I too have seen the rise in the price of all Fetts in the last few years (just look at the astronomical increase in the price of the PBP ones!), but it seems with regular Hong Kong and Taiwan Fetts to mostly be a case of the really good condition / mint ones being listed for mega money, and plenty of impatient and or ignorant people out there being prepared to pay it :roll:.

However, a mint regular Taiwan Fett will still go for a hell of a lot less than an equal condition painted helmet Taiwan Fett. And sorry, but looking at yours, I don't think you have either a painted helmet version or a mint one. But hey, it's still Fett and it's still a cool figure :-)
