Pick this helmet up and immediately you notice its a substantial weight and feel in your hands -since its cast out of Fiberglass, as opposed to the cheaper eFX version produced a few years later (which was vac-formed plastic). Since the Shadow Stormtrooper was never featured in any of the Star Wars movies – there’s no argument over “emulating the screen-used version”. This was solely a game/comic-book character so having it in fiberglass gives it real gravitas. The finish (which is excellent btw) is all gloss black with matt black detailing in the trapezoids, vocoder and vents. The only other colour/shade breaking through is the silver frown and chrome eye lenses which really make the helmet stand out. The “ears” are not separate but all part of the single helmet structure – although the matt black ear tips on them have been added on top- along with a couple of fake screws. As with all the Master Replicas LE helmets it comes with stand and polished metal (numbered) plaque. The interesting thing about this helmet is that its NOT using the same mould MR (and later eFX) used for the Limited Edition (white fiberglass) Stormtrooper Helmet. Around 2006, Master Replicas were prototyping a symmetrical version of the Stormtrooper helmet (the guys at Lucasfilm were very keen on this idea) and although it never went into production – the mould was not wasted as it was used for the Shadow Stormtrooper instead. In addition the symmetrical mould was later used by MR and eFX in their cheaper vac-formed plastic line of Stormtrooper helmets.
