    Nov 27, 2013, 4:08 PM - Stormtrooper helmets #1

    I have a nice interior set I made for stormtrooper helmets. Half the parts are not helmet specific, half of them are (The mold to the inside of the helmet).

    I would like to complete this project. I however dont know which helmet I used. Is there someone with a bunch of knowledge of helmets that I could show this to that could help me? I want to say it was an efx or fx cast, does that sound like a valid helmet?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Well efx has a licenced helmet the pcr but if it from a kit then it could be an old fx kit. I could help, does it have a separate dome or is the back and dome one piece?

    Front, dome, and rear. It came with mic tips, a piece of black trim for the bottom, some stickers. Green lense material. Thin vac formed. Im just looking for a popular version to do an interior kit for, because if I do a sculpt of the inside, id like to make as many as possible to make it worth my time.

    From those pics i can tell it is a movie style kit. Most likely of TE linage, which would mean that whatever you made for this helmet should fit: TE, CAP, CAPW, ATA, AP, T/MC, TM, or RS. Some have slight size differences, but are mostly the same.

    Thanks for the info. TE sounds right. That might be the acronym I was looking for. The issue is that I sculpted an eye padding, cheek and nose gear as well as temple pieces, all that fit perfectly into the helmet on the back side. So id like to know what helmet I had. If anyone has a TE let me know, ill send you some stuff, you can tell me it sucks

    TE, CAP, CAPW, And AP are all first Gen off the same screen used helmet if I recall correctly. ATA and T/MC are second Gen castings and will be ever so slightly smaller. RS is first Gen off a different screen used. TM is a fan sculpt but very close to the TE. So I think it would fit most of those.

    What Lou is saying is more then likely your sculpt would fit most any TK helmet because of them being Vac formed and theres alot less shrinkage assocaited with the recasting of them?

    I guess it's time to pull one or two and see who wants them. Anyone have a helmet they want to finish with a free kit

    I'll be happy to do a review and take some pictures for you. I've got a few options on helmets to use.

    I just need to get the molds out of the box, and do a quick pull. Ill do a breather box for front, intake, rear wrap and eye socket. I don't have a mold for the cheaks or visual computer piece.

    Nothing my friend. I want you guys to test them, tell me what you think. They are just light foam decorations really. Made to make your helmet look like the real thing. I haven't sculpted the padding for the dome yet.
