    Nice! I took a few photos of the real helmet at Comic Con. I'd be glad to share those with you!

    Man, that looks amazing. If you do figure out chroming but still making it see through, I will absolutely buy one from you.

    For a chrome visor, you could get some chrome window tint, 1-way mirror tint, or a chromed motorcycle visor (I know Icon has some, but maybe not the right shape) and heat/bend it to fit...

    Looks amazing! Here's what I found with a quick search on ebay (not my auction): 30" x 20' Silver Chrome Window Tint Film HP 2ply 35 | eBay
    I'm sure there are other solutions out there, but this doesn't seem to expensive and would be very easy & effective.

    Very Nice! Any chance you'll be doing a run on this or the Snake Eyes helmet? They both look AWESOME!

    When you get the mirrored visor figured out, please let us know. I made Cobra Vipers last summer, and just used the face shield from Harbor Freight with mirrored privacy tint from Home Depot. Not a dome, just a smooth curve and the helmet is almost like a Fett with bigger T-shape, so it held it curved like that. A friend wants to replace his hooded Cobra Commander with a helmet, and I said I'd build it, but that one (the cartoon version) definitely needs to be domed. I'm wondering if a little heat and vacuum could stretch the mirror tint over a vac-formed clear visor.
