Seriously? Gino posted that Bullshit? Please post a link.

Two months before the movie, he was cutting down he RO helmet - saying it would be a big disappointment, that it looked like a modified Rubies.

So...this begs the questions: Is Gino's helmet a Rubies?


Do you have that anywhere? It'd be so funny if that was copied into the thread.


Made a print screen of that post :lol , that he not can say it's a lie or if he wanted to edtit it.
And if you go to the link of the thread you see, that it's not photoshoped by me.

He looks like the Notre Dame hunchback in Vader disguise... :dope

^ This one ^

If it is from Rogue One, it does look more ANH-ish. I would attribute it to the overhead lighting. But also looks like he's got a full diaper that The Emperor needs to change. :)

This is not in fact the case. I've spoken to two people involved with Rogue One, one of whom worked in the props department. The face came from a fan made helmet that was owned by one of the propmakers, and the dome came from some other helmet, though the source is not certain.

I also spoke to the crew member that Gino has mentioned. He confirmed that he did loan two ANH helmets to the production and was asked if they could be moulded. He said yes, but wasn't able to confirm that either of them were actually used. He did say that the dome from the Gino helmet was definitely not moulded in the end. This is straight from Gino's own source. The only parts he was certain were used that he provided was - Chest box, belt boxes and other belt greeblies.

As I mentioned, my own source was able to confirm that the face was not from Gino's helmet, and was based on a fan made helmet. Face and dome were 3D scanned to be cleaned up in certain areas and then printed. He wasn't all that keen on the changes made, but I think the feeling was that HD cameras pick up so much detail they wanted to remove the more obvious blemishes while leaving the asymmetric look.

You know that's bookface right? And I have a source from the RPF that told me exactly what fan made it was. He and the person who sculpted it wish to remain anonymous right now.

The helmet just looks too full, too curved......my daughter thought Vader looked "fat" when we saw R1 at the cinema.......

They actually painted a C Scar? Sheesh, when there's so much more they could have done to accurize the helmet? They thought, let's Sharpie a C Scar, that'll give him that "authentic" look!

That helmet wasn't in the rest of the movie. That looks to be from a deleted scene. I had seen promo image where the helmet had what looked like a c scar. But it was more subtle. I think it looks awful in that shot...

I'm just happy they went back to the two tone paint scheme, instead of all black (ROTS). LOL

Then what should we call it? The boarding party helmet?
