I've Created this Thread to see if there's enough interest to Create & offer To Customers a Complete set of "Predator 1 Helmet & Base" (Including L.E.D Lasers, and a Custom Plaque)... since a few Fans have been asking if I would offer them...
Years ago (When I was Young :) ) While working for "Icons Authentic Replicas" as their Main Sculptor, I was given the Chance to redesign the Base which the Predator 1 Helmet would be mounted on, here are a couple of Photos of my original Sculpt, I'll add more photos as I find them (If anyone is interested in seeing them...)
Attached are also Photos of my own Personal Predator Helmet I worked on for display (while it's still in the early Stages, you get the idea of how detailed a Paint-job I'm doing)... The Base needs a bit of Gold & Copper accents before its completed but it's been on hold wile other projects were priority...
One of my Customers suggested I offer a Custom Plaque that could be Signed as an Artist original so I'm Posting the Design Render to give you an idea of what I have in mind...

Also for those interested would you want a Certificate of Authenticity with it?

Price will be determined based on the number of Buyers for this run of the Helmet with Bases...

This would be a Predator 1 Helmet 2nd Generation (Or 3rd depending on how you look at it)
- Helmet Painted to more accurately match the Screen used Helmet
- L.E.D. Laser Included
- Custom Plaque from the original Artist & designer of the Base

I'd be very interested in your Input as well as any Suggestions...

The best Predator helmet made by the original sculptor? Interested! :)
Certificate of Authenticity, that is a good idea.

I think he means that he is the original sculptor of the base that ICONS was going to use for their replica helmet. Not that he's the original sculptor of the helmet itself.

I can add Mesh to the Visor, the original Icons Visor was just a few Layers of Reflective Window Tint Glued into Place..

If everyone wants a "Certificate of Authenticity", I can easily do that too...

I'm working on making this Predator Helmet as accurate as Possible... Years ago when I restored the original, we were given very Little Reference to use, Now there's much more info as well as Blu-Ray HD (Back then it was VHS!)

ROCKBOTTOM: Correct... I was given a Casting from the Original Molds to restore..., I did Sculpt the Tri-Laser as well as the Ribbed Side Temple Piece which the Hoses in the Film attach to... THEN Designed & Sculpted the Base...

In regards to the Final Cost, there are a Number of Factors Involved... (I'm NOT Ignoring the Requests!)

(1) The Helmet & Base have to be Remolded (Not Cheap!)
(2) The Electronics for the L.E.D. Lasers need to be Assembled.
(3) Stencils for the Battle Damage need to be Created.
(4) The Plaque Etchings have to be Created, Numbered & Stamped...
(5) The "Certificate of Authenticity" has to be Designed & Printed out then Stamped with the Matching Numbers to the Plaque.
(6) The Materials (Fiberglass, Primer, Paints, Etc) need to be Priced and Bought in Bulk...
(7) & MORE Buyers Brings Down the Final Cost!
 
I'm with General Frosty on this one, I rarely buy finished pieces. All the fun is in the making. But still interested in Helmet price, finished or un finished.

Agreed with all of the above. I would love a paint your own option as well. Interested either way though.
