    Anyone ever made a replica of the back of this helmet? I think it'd be cool to have in a helmet collection.

    It's often intrigued me.

    I wonder if they used a piece of vacuum cleaner hose - it seems to have a threaded look, rather than being a series of discs?

    It's that old vinyl pipe that was reinforced with metal rings I think - it's like a larger less textured version of the stuff they used on the TIE helmets.

    So are the rings on a slight angle like a spring or straight up and down?

    I'd say it's like a coil...

    Looks like they vac-u-formed a shop vac hose to me.

    Probably is then.
