New from eFX Collectibles!
The original helmet was made from an APH-6B Vietnam era flight helmet used by the US Navy, circa 1969. This helmet included the dual visor cover. A ridge was also added over the top from front to back. The helmet was then cast in halves to make the master pattern and the X-wing pilot helmets were then vacuum formed from these patterns. Upon assembly, a strip of ABS was added to hide the parting line of the two halves.
The microphone is from a Racal Minilite headset. This is the same headset that Luke and Han wore when fighting the TIE Fighters in their escape from the Death Star.
The eFX X-wing pilot helmet is a faithful recreation of the iconic helmet that Luke Skywalker wore in the exciting Death Star trench run in the epic battle of Yavin. Utilizing a digital scan of an original X-wing helmet in the Lucasfilm archive and an actual APH-6B helmet, castings of an original visor and chin cup, eFX’s engineers, model-makers and artists painstakingly constructed the master patterns to produce this prop replica.
