    Here's mine. Needs refinishing. It's 'supposedly' cast off a stunt helmet, but who knows.



    There is a guy in Canada who makes phantom helmets (original sculpt). They are pretty nice. I had one and sold it.

    Ooohh man, I have been wondering where to get one of these for a long time, but never thought anyone

    else was interested in them. Do you guys have the contacts where the guy in Canada is who makes them?

    Also, yours are reeeally sweet clutch and Micdavis, would like to know where you got yours and whether

    they are screen accurate or not?

    In my view the Phantom really is the inspiration for Darth Vader right down to the sickly breathing (also

    George L. was a friend of Brian DePalma's, the Phantom Director back in the day). It's a great cult B movie classic.

    I always thought the base for the helmet looked like a 1960's football helmet? Anyone else have any

    information on this helmet, how it was made etc.?

    I have no idea who made mine. A buddy bought it for me at a Con many years ago.

    It is not one of the Canada one.

    I have seen some castings supposedly off an orginal but they looked pretty small.

    MEDICOM TOY released prop size Phantom mask(display model like their ROCKETEER mask) as a limited item at WONDER FESTIVAL 2007 winter.
    They accepts mail order until March 5.

    But they will not accept the order from the outside of Japan, and will not deliver this to abroad.

    Why is there so much cool stuff in Japan that we can't buy?

    Now all I need to do is find a long lost relative in Japan that can get me one of these Phantom Helmets.

    I just realized I don't have any long lost relatives from Japan. Very sad indeed.

    The Medicom model looks nice. Too bad it can't actually be worn.


    {EDIT} Great mask and costume, mr.p. You look just like the Real McCoy (er, Leach).

    Sep 18, 2011, 12:20 PM - The Phantom of The Paradise #18

    For the longest time I have been a major fan of the helmet/mask worn in the film the Phantom of the Paradise. It has that amazing retro anime design and that majestic look about it. I was wondering if anyone has the same love for this design. I have pepakura and 3ds max I barely know how the drive the two programs. I am very proficient in Autocad. If anyone has a 3d rendering of this in 3ds format I would love to be able to plot out the mask in pepakura and create my own helmet.

    Your inquiry would fare much better in the replica props or costume forums, this forum is dedicated to replica filming miniatures

    I have the helmet and mask which I bought from a guy in Canada (before he stopped making them). Here is a picture of me in the moment when I say, "My music! SWAN!"



    If I only had that talk box that would light when Winslow spoke.

    A sad note: William Finley, who played Winslow Leach/The Phantom passed away at the age of 69 on April 14, 2012 after undergoing colon surgery.
