    I think it looks more like a recast of the SU Hero

    It's a dingleberry off the rump of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. In fact, I think it looks like some featured piece on Cake Boss... "fondant-trooper".

    That's a rubies helmet. I don't even understand how LFL could grant them a license when they make this kind of ****.

    I can see LFL granting them the license. This would be perfect for a kids costume if the helmet only cost $20-$25. It shouldn't be marketed as "authentic" if that's what they're doing.

    That's true, if it was cheap enough there's nothing to complain about. But rubies promotes these like "deluxe" editions.

    Maybe the store is shooting for a "Crushed Stormtrooper helmet look" ? Or it got dented by Ewoks? Or the Wookies used it for soccer practice?

    There is one in the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle.
    Somewhere I have at least 50 close up shots of that Bahama Mama, including the Crew Signatures in the nose Landing Gear Well.
    But I'll be damned if I know where they went, we moved twice since then...
    They also have two separate cockpits open to the public to sit in, of which I also have pictures, but I can't recall if it was an F-18 and a SR-71 or an F-18 and a F-117.
    You may still find something worthwhile looking for people's Boeing Museum albums.

    ... they really make them sound like the MR Stormtrooper helmets that came out a while back.
