    I'm only seeing the helmet on one soldier. The dreariness of the poster makes you think twice about whether or not he'll make it

    as if there was any doubt as to this being an M1 helmet, you can pretty plainly see the brim of the separate helmet liner in this pic

    I'm liking the idea of this as well... but man, real helmets are friggin expensive here.

    At the very least need to know EXACTLY what kind before dishing out any money.

    Another trading card photo. The armor plating is really shiny!

    If they made the actors wear actual M1 helmets with the liners, then I feel sorry for them. They reason they were called "Steel Pots" is because the outer helmet was steel and heavy to wear. If you wear that long enough you will build up your neck muscles! I would definitely suggest a fiberglass or plastic outer helmet unless you want to be uncomfortable.

    Oh I doubt that they are. There are lightweight helmets that are about half the weight but are the same size as the real deal. Not too sure what they are called but you can find them in surplus stores

    i'm going to hit up my local... well it's a bit of a hike so i should say the nearest military surplus store this weekend. and see if i can snag one of these.

    when i was referring to fiberglass i was talking about the metal shield around the M1 helmet.

    we need a official parts name for it, i know the endor helmets ring is called the toilet bowl seat

    what should be call this? dome shield?

    My military surplus had a ton of them but was tragically burned down by some crazed arsonist in our town. Very disappointing.....

    They do need to be the Vietnam era M1's so they have the flatter top right? I'll check my surplus store as well for one

    thats what we believe, the WWII seem to be more dome shaped. we want the flat top version. i just saved the russian poster photo to my phone so when I'm at the surplus i can use it as reference. i dont even know how much these usually go for?

    i know we can't direct link eBay auctions. but st_ablert_surplus looks like he has the correct helmet we are looking for no?

    Okay well will send out an email and see if the person will hold til Saturday.

    has a liner which is cool.

    I'm not supposed to be getting into helmets, dammit... but I'm working on a stormtrooper, a Kylo Ren BS, and now this.

    Ah well, when the family Christmas comes around this year, people can take their photos with more than just lightsabers this time.
