I have been wanting to do this helmet for a while and by chance I was contacted by a client who wanted me to make this helmet for him. So I took the commission and built this helmet for him. I made molds so that I could make more of them. I also will be making the Spaceballs trooper helmets as seen above. This helmet is made from a light weight resin and reinforced with fiberglass for strength. It is supported on your head via a custom made, comfortable suspension system which is adjustable to fit various head sizes.
Also, I made a quick video of myself trying on the prototype raw cast and of the finished helmet here:
Here are the hi-res images of the Painted and Assembled Helmet:

I am taking a limited number of orders for these helmets. Once the mold is done then I will not continue to offer them. I also sell them through my online store.
Raw Cast Kit - $250
Comes with the dome and the faceplate. Dome will have 1/4-20 threaded rod preinstalled at pivot point.
Suspension System - $35
Custom made with aluminum flat bar and adjustable headgear (now with metal hardware = no fear of stripping the bolt on the headgear). Also includes all necessary nuts, bolts, and knobs to connect the headgear to the dome and faceplate.
Accessory Kit - $35
Includes the tinted lenses and screen accurate metal mouth piece.
Finished Helmet - $470
It will include a painted and assembled helmet with the Suspension System and Accessory Kit as mentioned above.
The cost of shipping depends on what type of service you want and where you live. After the recent USPS rate increase standard shipping in the US would be $35, Priority shipping is now $75, and for some reason Express Shipping is only $60. I will also ship internationally but a package this size will only ship via International Priority shipping for $75 (same price as in the USA??? I think USPS screwed something up - called them to double check and they said that is the way it is supposed to be, go figure).
