A production-made B-wing pilot helmet with a hand-painted blast shield from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The Rebel Alliance's B-Wing fighter pilots wore their helmets while trying to take down Death Star II during the Battle of Endor. Some B-wing pilot helmets were seen with visors or blast shields.
This production-made helmet features an initial paint finish and a leatherette trim, and is constructed of vacuform plastic. There is an electronic cable connector present as dressing, and "A A" is marked on its interior. The painted and detailed blast shield component is also included. The lot is in good overall condition with some signs of use, including scuffed paint and stains to the helmet's interior. Dimensions (helmet): 11" x 8" x 8" (28 cm x 20.5 cm x 20.5 cm); (shield): 8" x 8" x 3" (20.5 cm x 20.5 cm x 7.75 cm)
