    Fantastic collection! I'm not a Star Wars fan but it's still awesome and that life size Storm Trooper armour = WOW!

    I'm still waiting to move house before I can display my collection, can't wait!

    Again brilliant collection :)

    Thanks. All SDs helmets and armors are life-size and thus wearable. There are 501st members using SDS lids and armors :)


    Thank you for the kind words Jessica! :hiya:

    AT-AT Driver helmet in the real movie gray color as per StarWarsHelmets Original AT-AT Helmet Review. It is a a superb helmet, really heavy and sturdy. It feels like a real AT-AT Driver helmet should. One of my favorite SW helmets, these pics simply don't do it justice.

    It has some very sharp details compared for example with Laws AT-AT which is softer. I have TK-4510 decals on it plus some original greeblies like BOC syphons. It also has Elvistrooper metal greeblies. I still need to upgrade some of the existing greeblies like the clock parts on the forehead, the 2 black squares next to the eyes and the colored buttons on top.

    As Jez said this is not sure to be made by eFX since the only original remaining one is in private hands.

    Thanks. I've tried almost all of them for a second or so. But since I wear glasses you cannot fit them with glasses on. So a few seconds it is the most. :laugh:

    Finally my AT-AT Driver helmet is finished. I got all the missing greeblies, including original side holders. Maybe in the future if more parts are discovered what they really are I'll upgrade it further. Until then I'm really happy how this turned out, being one of the coolest SW helmets and one of my favs.

    The most beautiful and screen accurate Stormtrooper stunt helmet just arrived - SiMan RS Prop Masters:

    The story of the original prop on RPF: http://www.therpf.com/f45/original-1977-anh-stormtrooper-armor-helmet-95954/index25.html#post1683204


    My first SiMan helmet was lost in the mail, Royal Mail sent it elsewhere (Burkina Faso or Tataouine Tunisia maybe LOL), and on their tracking site it says it is returning to sender. But RS Prop Masters didn't wait and sent me a replacement which arrived fast, well packed and in perfect shape. The most accurate Stormtrooper helmet is here! And it is SUPERB too. :)

    My second AT-AT Driver helmet made by the well known prop master DarkAgent (DA) who also provides buckets for 501st:

    The SDS TIE Fighter Pilot bust is not showing in these pics since I need to make a cabinet for it and for the eFX TIE Fighter too. There are a few more helmets coming and the next set of pics will be only when all of them have arrived and when the TIE cabinet is ready.

    Thanks Viper.:hiya: It is indeed a cool helmet and it is approved by 501st.

    Since I took the pics without the mannequin head, here are some shots that will show how this helmet really fits:

    Very accurate C-1 Imperial comlink with hovi-mix PA2 tip (the same with the original Stormtrooper helmet dual microphones/aerators) and accurate finned body. Much better than my old version with rubber O-rings, which I'm still keeping for my 1:1 Stormie.

    Cast from Original (CfO) ROTJ Stormtrooper helmet with screen accurate decals and inner padding - it is also one of the last from the series since Joe R., the owner of the ROTJ screen used bucket, sold the molds:

    That Snow Helmet looks great, is the front quite flexible or sturdy?

    Thanks inzaman :hiya:. The front is flexible as it was on the screen used helmets. Only the Snowtrooper Commander has solid faceplate. But that one I'll get in the future.

    My collection for 2011 - youtube video:







    The TIE Fighter Pilot armor/bust that is now on that chair will be displayed in a special custom made cabinet/curio, which will be in the same spot when ready. It will be displayed together with the eFX TIE Fighter studio scale, but I'm waiting for approximate dimensions of the eFX TIE Fighter, to be sure the cabinet will be made properly.

    For those asking about the helmets here they are: the life-size Stormtrooper has the SDS Hero helmet on. As you enter the main collection room in the left there are the following helmets: SDS Navy Trooper helmet (aka Death Star Trooper), SDS Imperial Gunner, Royal Guard, 2 AT-AT Driver helmets (both in gray color as the originals were - see StarWarsHelmets site - the first one I got from PRF, the second is made by DarkAgent) and finally FarAwayCreations AT-ST Driver helmet (very similar to General Veers' Hoth helmet he had on the AT-AT).

    On the right side of the room there are the following helmets: as you enter the room there is a TE2 Sandtrooper lid made by the talented Madrid Boba from RPF, then it follows the SDS Stormtrooper Stunt, TE2 Stormtrooper, SiMan Stormie, ESB ATA Stormtrooper helmet and the last of the TK's is CfO (Cast from Original) ROTJ bucket. Then there is the Kropserkel Scout helmet and the FarAwayCreations Snowtrooper. As you can see, in a way, I had the left part of the room dedicated to officers and special ops, and the right side to the white regular troops/grunts.

    There are a few other items that are on pre-order and which didn't arrive yet. When they do there will be a new video, since there will be a couple changes on some of the shelves. Until then please enjoy this video. Thanks
