    Hello everyone. I just finished up my metal batman vs superman armored batman helmet and my next project will be a metal Kylo Ren helmet. It is a commission and I will be using 18 gauge sheet steel like I have in all my previous builds. I will be filming the build also and will be uploading the video on my youtube channel goldpointprops. I'm starting the templates and once I start the build I will begin posting the progress here.

    Oh yeah, its going to be nice! Any you will be able to polish the chrome trim since it metal! Will be wicked! Even though the Celebration looked like it was grey the videos looks like it polished.

    Shinny? Hummmmm. Was the costume at the Star War Celebration the actual costume or was it a replica? I only ask because the hilt was 3d printed and not very appealing there and didn't look movie ready compared to all of the other hilts and sabers they have used in the past.

    I think the hilt was cast out of rubber, that's why the side emitters were droopy

    It did. Yet you could clearly see the mould seam that went right around it. The master might have been 3D printed, but the prop on display was a foam stunt cast for sure

    Yup beautiful work. I'm always amazed how you can break these helmets down into the fewest number of pieces required. You make it look so easy.

    Thank you I appreciate it. I like the challenge of making a helmet in the fewest pieces possible. I would make a helmet out of one piece if I could :D

    I've been working with metal for 15 years. So it came with time. But I use multiple hammers to form the metal to the shape I want. I then use the English wheel to smooth out the hammer marks. I repeat utill the dome is right shape.if you check out my youtube channel goldpointprops you can see how I do it.

    I made some more progress today. I got the detail added to the "under nose piece" and got it welded into place. next im going to make the "outer nose piece" and the helmet will basically be done. Ill just have a few small details to finish up. im also going to go back and change up some of the details on the "helmet section". Then its on to the paint.

    Hi Robert,

    Could you explain a bit about how you developed the parts or pieces for this build? Did you build with some flexible medium (poster stock) to get the templates before cutting the metal? Did you work off of a dummy head (mannequin, a life cast of your head)? Or did you do measurements from screen caps/images or get your hands on a finished mask from someone to pattern your build off of?
