    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.
    i actually started looking at motorcycle helmets, i believe they are called "half caps" but i didnt have much luck

    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.

    i think we are on to something with the M1, maybe try and find some knock off company that makes them. to me that red helmet still looks too round at the top

    I'm seeing this shape

    Throwing my 2 cents in for the M1 helmet.

    Reading about the helmet, there was this picture of one with fabric over:

    The middle soldier's helmet looks pretty similar to the Rouge helmet


    I think it would also make sense for the production to reuse helmets from previous war movies that are available to them. Rather than hunt for some new ones and waste their budget.

    bingo! you got it! thats exactly what i was looking for, great find!! i was thinking the padding on the R1 helmet made it look more flat, look how thin that fabric is on that M1 and what a different shape it makes

    excellent find!

    So it IS the padding that makes the R1 helmet look flat?

    Vietnam era to end of M1 production did have a lower profile dome than WW2 M1s. I'm kind of hoping it will end up being the M1, I have 8 that I need to do something with.

    I also second the M1, here is one with a Korean helmet cover that is similar in pattern to the helmet in R1, especially from the front it gives it a bit of a flatter look

    Awesome. Now we need to figure out if that is the cover they used, what the black visor thing is, identify the straps, and find what the ribbed sections are. I love new finds like this

    Quick thing I just found. It looks like they used an original liner

    to me, by the color I assume it would have to be custom made. I've never seen a M1 cover that color. however I do believe that they used an original for inspiration, and that's why the "holes" are in the R1 cover

    I threw together a rough sketch of the side and front of this thing to get a better understanding of the shape of the armor plating. I noticed that the rectangular cutouts on the forehead are only on the lefthand side, which makes me wonder if this whole piece isn't custom made. I've never seen a skateboard/action sports helmet with those cutouts only on one side...

    They're exactly like Vietnam movies. I definitely need to get one
    Can definitely see that the 'armour' is contiguous and runs around the whole of the 'M1'.

    Also can see that the right hand shoulder patch is the same style as those worn by Rebel troopers on Hoth - sorry the last is an observation not meant to derail the helmet focus.

    Yeah I think those patches must be a Rank Identification of sorts. One more question to everyone: Are we sure that box on the strap on the poster helmet is an E-11 clip? It looks to straight to be a cut down sterling magazine

    i also believe it's some kind of magazine. u can see one side has a indented half moon shape, and the other side has a extended halfmoon shape like the bottom of the mag

    i am willing to bet the cylinder under the mag is a flash light

    I'm also thinking that the box is a magazine, and the cylinder is a flash light. The bands around the helmet remind me of the rubber bands used by the US Marines in Vietnam.

    The rubber bands reminded me on the rubberbands from the endcaps of our MILAN - anti tank guided missile.

    Those of us that fired a real one kept the bands for our helmets.

    Not convinced it is a Sterling (E-11) mag either.
    @elr02k - those patches are discussed in the Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy book - the three columns are supposed to represent - Division / Brigade / Regiment - according to John Mollo the costume designer for ESB.

    Nice sketch! Some cold weather helmets don't have front vent holes. You could start with one of those and cut your own custom ones in.

    Unfortunately a lot of the "original" style costumes have been updated with current military issue gear and accessories instead of the vintage WW2 used in Ep 4-6.
