I just got the flip down visor version aaannndddd it is not correct. This is the third one I have bought to be disappointed. The back neck line has a curve, whereas the screen used version I am working from does not.
This is awesome! A great step towards making a perfect replica. I’m going to modify my side protectors to get some extra thickness so that they are closer to these. I may need to bend them as well to change the angle. I have another set from China which could be closer.So over the course of diggin up the found parts, I was able to determine that the side cheek protectors were from OPS CORE, but seemed to be no longer made and no longer available anywhere. At that time I searched and searched to no avail. But with the recent thread updates I thought I would look again. I finally found a place that had the correct versions so I bought a pair. Crazy money but I thought this might be my only chance to have them. For those interested: Ops-Core Up-Armor Side Covers Ballistic - Slim Profile (R)
So everything but the base helmet is identified.

Here’s a photo of one of Tom’s helmets showing the Princeton light, from prop store. Here’s the link to more photos. EDGE OF TOMORROW - Major Bill Cage's (Tom Cruise) HelmetThis looks like a correct version:
Do you happen to have any good reference photos of it? I have some screen shots but the res is not so great. View attachment 1570254
Did you finish yours ?Prop store has updated a sold listing which has a lot of really good helmet pictures here EDGE OF TOMORROW - EXO Suit Helmet The helmet was sold a while ago but viewing the pictures would give 404 until today.
From what I can see all of the helmets sold on prop store use resin copied side covers and rails! The night vision mount is also a resin copy from an ops core helmet. From what it looks like the side covers are a single piece maybe cast as one with the rails. I think the helmet itself is a resin copy of ops core too. I highlighted on some pictures a lot of flaws showing the cast construction. The copied side covers look very fragile as every one listed has some structural damage of some kind. The covers you bought look identical to these originals exept they are the real deal. I'm not sure what much we can learn from this but I found it interesting.

As of now I would say it’s 95% complete. The only things I need to do is look for a visor and re-sew the chin strap. The helmet shell thickness is something I might not bother with since it’s not too noticeable. Here’s some photos of the recent work, I’ve added foam pieces to the inside of the side covers so that they look as thick as the real ones. It’s looking a lot more accurate now.Did you finish yours ?
