    So the Russian Rogue One poster was just revealed at a Russian Comic-Con.

    That made me think of a Vietnam era helmet. The box on the side looks like how U.S. soldiers put cigarette packs in the helmet strap.

    Just did some quick research and it looks like they might've used a Vietnam era M1 Helmet.

    That looks about right. I'm interested to find out what that box is. Since in Vietnam the strap was used to keep the canvas on the helmet, soldiers used it for holding their bug spray, cigarettes, playing cards, or even a lucky bullet. Hey it might even be some death sticks

    When I saw this poster I thought the same thing...I want this! Nothing cooler than a Vietnam/Star Wars mashup!

    I just saw this poster this morning, looks great! If you zoom in you can see that there are two thin rubber bands going all the way around it all, keeping it on. I just wish I could see the armor on the back!
    Also, don't think they kept the chin strap the same, looks all cotten and different maybe, no clasps.

    Is this what all the rebels will wear in this you think? Picked up a veitnam helemet and liner for $20 a while ago, time to put it to use.

    Signed up just to say I'm fairly certain the "armour plate" is the shell from a skate style helmet with part of it trimmed out and the inner foam removed.

    Maybe they took a pattern from the Vietnam M1 helmet and they placed the pattern on some courderoy? The material looks alot like a courderoy-type fabric.

    I'm so pumped to start this helmet. It'll probably just sit in my garage for a while with the other 50 projects I havnt finished though:/.

    I definitely agree. Looking into it a bit more it looks like this helmet may be the base for it or something like this helmet.

    It called the Pro Tec Ace, the holes on the rebel helmet look a bit more rectangular but it's a really good start.

    I don't think it's based on any of Pro Tec's offerings. I'm pretty into skiing/snowboarding/biking so I'm familiar with a lot of the action sports helmets out there. The vent holes look similar to helmets from TSG (there are other close matches too). The problem is I'm not familiar with any that have holes shaped like that, but in the double configuration like the ace.

    It may be a European brand I'm not familiar with. You can even see where the ear cutouts are, definitely some kind of action sports helmet.

    There is something about this helmet that's making me giddy inside. That being said, in an effort to find as much reference as possible, I've come across some things that may be of help:

    Overall I like the look of the Rogue One Rebel Soldier, there is some speculation on another site that some of the soldiers are wearing a variation of a Russian BDU outfit, don't know but overall a lot more believable looking then any variation on the old Rebel Fleet Trooper outfit

    The helmet looks so much like a M1, the chinstraps even look like pre 1973 T1 chinstraps.

    Im trying to figure out if the padding is throwing it off but it looks like the helmet is flat on the top. Most m1 helmets are almost perfectly round. Still hunting away

    Now that you mention it, it appears that way to me too. Even the Lego helmet is flat at the top. I don't think the padding is thick enough to flatten it out as much as it is.

    Tough to say if it is flat, or if the combination of the padding and the front armor piece change the profile. I've looked at my M1 helmet and it looks plausible.
