    This is an idea born on the assumption that you can never see too many Star Wars helmets. :D

    HereÂ’s my modest collection to kick things off:

    Threepio, Trooper and Luke X-wing:

    Rebel Fleet Trooper:

    Vader (displayed on my life-size):

    I plan to work on an ESB style Boba Fett helmet to add next year.

    I know there are some amazing helmet collectors/ collections out there – so let’s see those pics. :D :thumbsup

    Regards

    Ok, don't get me started. Like the Grinch a few are out for a bulb that needs replacing on one side. A few are boxed with costumes, all are waiting renovations for proper display. Here's the main lineup.
    [​IMG]
    You can probably tell I like Clonetrooper helmets.
    [​IMG]
    Mostly SW, with a FANTASTIC Airwolf and an MR Rocketeer mixed in.
    [​IMG]
    OK, SAAB (a fav), BSG NEW and old, SST & USCM, and some odds and ends.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    OK, some UC LOTRs. Waiting on WitchKing.
    [​IMG]
    Had to throw in some historical, which also appear in motion pictures.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Dredd, my Fav Vader (Portumac), Armor
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Rebels sleeping with Imps, sleepy Hoths.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Very nice Endor Rebel and a Ghost of Mars screen used. Like I said, these need to be liberated into good displays.

    Few more en route, including some world class screen used & replicas.

    rudolpht, real nice collection you got there. I kept scrolling and scrolling. Nice pics too. The Vader is a really nice piece. I like to see that version as opposed to the others since its so detailed. Not to mention a pretty good paintjob.

    rudolpht's collection simply rules. And I love the way you display your buckets on the wall, Jediwannabe. What did you use for those?

    Sorry for veering (your fault Jediwannabe) but I'm thinking it would be cool to turn the helmet stand into a mini gun rack. That way, you could have the trooper helmet displayed with his blaster underneath.

    What is the lowest-left-hand-corner helmet? It looks great. :love

    I've never seen anything like it - is it custom made?

    What the top shelf? Oh, you wouldn't be interested in that.
    I'm into making specific troopers from the movie and there are a lot that I want. I plan to make for myself a Luke hero, Han hero, promo hero, LSD sandy, move along sandy, blast em sandy, DaveM/TE2 death star, Brian R/TE1 death star, and 2 ESB.

    Gino, have you upgraded your Stormtrooper armour or has it always looked like that?

    Thankfully I only own a few helmets.

    Guys, some really awesome collections here. Mind hardly compares, but it rarely get to share it with people who might appreciate it.

    Love the plaques Gino. Where can I get some?

    Anyway, loads of helmets on my Want List -- and a life-size trooper in the works -- but here's what my minimal budget has allowed for so far. The plan is to eventually have nothing but helmets/props in all of these shelves. (I think I need a better digital camera.)

    Yup it is a Guyver helmet from the anime movies. It is a 1:1 scale resin cast of my first sculpting attempt. Here's a better look:

    So what is everyone using as helmet stands? They almost look like paper towel holders.

    Yep. IKEA Detolf shelves. They look great and their fairly inexpensive for what you get...although when you go in and buy four it sure adds up.

    There's another thread floating around out there about these, the most important bit of info about them being that not all helmets will fit in these. (Thus the four helmets I have on top of the shelves.)

    And my helmets are mostly on paper towel holders

    Cheers.
