I recently bought a used Master Replicas Stunt Helmet. I wanted to rework the entire helmet to be a bit more screen accurate as well as incorporate a better speaker and fan system. I know that everyone does TK's, but they are fun and this is my first attempt at doing trying to make one quite like this. Please feel free to comment and/or criticize. Thanks.
I almost forgot to take a picture before I started stripping the old paint. This is the MR CE completely taken apart in every way possible.
I wanted to take the Hasbro clone trooper mic system, (just the mic & speaker really since they are pretty good) and build it into the MR Hermet. Here is the Hasbro helmet after I pillaged the parts.
My kids are going to be mad!
I cut grooves where the cheek vents are. I am going to do this on both sides. My thought is to have a speaker on one cheek and a fan on the other. I ordered some more decals for the MR Helmet from TK-4510's site. I plan to reapply the decals and cut slits in them in order to hide any imperfections in my grooves. I used another set of those decals as my template to know where to cut the grooves.
The com system in the Hasbro Clone was salvaged only for the mic & speaker. I am going to replace the board with a Hyperdyne Labs Pro Trooper board (below)
Please feel free to make suggestions as well. This isn't a 501st purist project and it's more for fun than anything. I also have a set of fiberglass TK armor I'm thinking of tricking out to be a clone-stormtrooper hybrid, (somehow) so your input is welcome. Thanks for looking!
