    Re: HELP NEEDED!!!

    It really depends on what model and year the helmet is. From what I can gather - http://www.starwarshelmets.com/ - the earlier TIE helmets were fine and dandy, but the later versions (which were eventually sold out to Rubies) are horribly undersized.

    I would try to get some more info before purchasing.

    Most licensed helmets really suck.

    There's usually a kit or built one one ebay from time to time. You could also get in touch with the 501st's pilot wing, the Jolly Roger Squadren. They should be able to help, though I'm not sure about their policy on WTB threads. Might as well take the safe road, and ask one of there admins in a PM. I know Clontroopers.net doesn't tolerated them.

    I used to own a standard DP TIE helmet. I believe it was undersized when compared with a "movie sized" helmet. But I've never seen a "movie sized" one in person.
    The lenses were sort of hard to see through, they distorted your vision to a degree.
    There was no padding or anything inside. It was just a hollow shell. So you'd have to devise some way of making it sit on your head in the right position.
