Star Wars - Ep V - The Empire Strikes Back

391 - Live Auction 2015 - Stormtrooper Helmet

Stock #49449

A Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Imperial stormtroopers wore their standard-issue helmets during the Empire’s hunt for Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

The helmet, known as a “Mk II” style, is constructed of vac-formed ABS plastic sections for the faceplate, dome and communicator ear piece with green acrylic lenses installed in the eye recesses. The face plate “tusks” are made of white resin with metal vent sections installed at the front. Rubber trim is present at the helmet’s neck opening, and a replacement rubber trim piece is applied to the helmet’s brow. Black paint is applied to the chin and mouth vent with decals applied to the helmet’s cheeks and temples. A foam lining is present for comfort during wear. The “Mk II” style helmets were created during the production of Empire when producer Gary Kurtz noticed the original costumes, which had been recycled from the first film, were showing excessive wear and tear.

Well-used, the piece displays some wear from use and time spent in storage, including discolouration and cracks to the white plastic; and the communicator ear piece on the left side of the helmet is no longer present. The helmet remains overall in good condition. Dimensions: 29 cm x 29 cm x 30 cm (11 ½” x 11 ½” x 12”)
