Does anyone know what the origins of this sellers helmets are?

Possibly AP based?

LOL, I was just about to ask the same question.

He's also selling this Hero kit.

After looking at that Hero kit it is def of AP origin.

Origins aside, I do like his weathered ANH Stunt helmet.

It certainly looks good, but I don't think the Stunt/Background helmet is an AP (derative). The lower neck part is shaped differently IMO.
And the cap is more rounded than an AP.

My guess would be a TE/TE2 (derative)

You're right that does look like a TE at the rear. He has sold ROTJ helmets as well, perhaps he has cast a number of different helmets.

I agree. It's my believe that he owns (or owned) (at least) three moulds of different helmets and is selling casts in various faceplate - cap/neck - ears combinations.
