Stormtrooper Helmet eFX Precision Cast

Fearless and unswervingly loyal to the Emperor, Stormtroopers are the most recognized symbol of Imperial might. Encased in white armor over black body gloves, Stormtroopers make up the bulk of Palpatine’s ground-based armies and the space-based Imperial starfleet. Their fearsome looking helmets allow the soldiers to breathe in the harshest of environments, including the vacuum of space, and are equipped with long range communications allowing these elite shock troops to be deployed with speed and efficiency to quell insurrections and maintain order across the many worlds of the Empire.

The Stormtrooper Helmet eFX Precision Cast is a 1:1 full-scale replica of the original stunt helmet seen in the Star Wars films. This unique collectors item gives the owner a stunning piece of memorabilia that will be valuable for years to come. This version of the Stormtrooper helmet is actually based on the original stunt prop found in the Lucas archives (designed in 1975 by conceptual artist Ralph MacQuarrie), and was specifically released to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back. Following are some of the main features of the eFX edition of the Storm Trooper Helmet:

Lightweight, Durable Design

The lightweight design of the helmet makes it perfect for functional use and role-playing, however it is also large enough (at 12 x 12 x 13) to be durable in the event that is dropped. The Stormtrooper Helmet not only carries immense collectors value, it is also constructed of high-quality ABS molded materials that will last for decades, if not centuries when properly maintained. ABS materials have been shown to be much more durable than typical plastics, and are even used in the construction of professional grade equipment.

Feeling of Authenticity

If you are a collector that likes to make use of your collectors items, you’ll find that wearing the Storm Trooper Helmet gives you an authentic experience with dark green lenses that can invoke a Star Wars mood in almost any fan. Along with the helmet you’ll receive a certificate of authenticity, which ensures the item’s value for years to come. If you require only the most authentic collectors items in your Star Wars memorabilia collection, this impressive Stormtrooper Helmet would make a valuable addition to your arsenal. By purchasing an official Stormtrooper Helmet from eFX collectibles you can be sure of the authenticity of the item that you’re buying.
