This is an accurate replica of a screen used episode IV stunt Stormtrooper helmet. Just to be clear, this was not used in the film! There were just over 50 stunt helmets made and the survivors have changed hands for many thousands of pounds. This is a faithful representation of one of those helmets. If you know about them, you can see all of the details have been carefully reproduced to represent a screen used helmet. If you are unaware of them, they were made from khaki vacuum formed plastic and painted in haste for filming. Runs in the paint were common and the grey and black details were hand painted. The correct colours have been used as per the originals. They were knocked about and damaged. Some of the damage happened early on and can even be seen in the film! The common effect was that the white paint would chip exposing the khaki plastic underneath. The helmet was made by a top quality vacuum former from their accurate moulds. I painted the details myself. I have painted many over the years and this has been by far the most fun to create. The lens is made from a green lens sheet like the originals and a yellow star shaped piece of foam has been added. The paint has been aged and is ivory coloured. If you rub through it, the paint actually becomes bright snow white. The rubber strips are exactly the same as the real ones and the hovi mic tips are very high quality reproductions. This replica is probably as close to owning a genuine helmet as possible. It may even fool someone into thinking this is straight off the Tantive IV. Its worth researching the actual helmets that exist to see how this compares. This is a lightly distressed one rather than one of the skip found examples.
