These helmets are full prop replicas. These are not mass produced collectables, they are hand made prop replicas, in the exact same style and spirit of the helmets used on set. This we believe is why you need this helmet.

The helmets plastic components comprises of a faceplate, back and cap and two separate ears. The helmet is then assembled by hand. We trim it to size, riveted it together and the ear caps are secured with screws. The internal components are then added, yellow foam star, green bubble  eye lens and an elastic chin strap, with replica vintage ’S’ spring snaps. The helmet is completed with accurate rubber trims and castings of our original Hovi-mix “Mic Tip” greeblies, Even the screws on this thing are matched to the original props. This level of detailing is why people choose RS time and time again.

About the Stormtrooper

From the minds of George Lucas and Ralph McQuarrie (Concept Artist), the original Stormtrooper character was bought to life by John Barry (Production Designer), John Mollo (Wardrobe Designer) Bob Walker (Graphic Artist) and sculptors Brian Muir (armour) and Liz Moore (helmet).

Fifty sets of armour were made for the film. Surviving sets of armour used for “A New Hope” would later go on to be reconditioned and reused for “The Empire Strikes back”.

Here at RS Prop Masters we are the only helmet makers with original Star Wars “A New Hope” stunt helmet which enables only us to faithfully and painstakingly recreate every detail of the original.

Customers purchasing a Stormtrooper Hero Helmet will receive hologram authentication stickers and Certificate of Authenticity.
