A production-made B-wing pilot helmet with an unpainted 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, with loose wiring on the helmet intended to connect to a microphone. Also included is the unpainted blast shield. The lot is in fair overall condition with some signs of use and the shield torn at the center. Dimensions (helmet): 11" x 8" x 8" (28 cm x 20.5 cm x 20.5 cm); (shield): 8" x 11" x 3" (20.5 cm x 28 cm x 7.75 cm)
