I found this great looking ANH stunt on ebay and won it for $150. That's cheap for a high quality helmet. The seller must needed fast cash or something. But there is no information on where it came from or who made it. I was wondering if any of you guys knew.

Thanks!

My first guess is ATA. I believe ATA makes both ABS and styrene helmets/armor. CAP-W also sells helmet kit in styrene, but doesn't match the shape of this one. If it's ATA, there will be a blue stamp inside the cap&back.

The straight lines of the outer edges of the eyes and the sharp point of the bottom outside corners of the eyes throw me off. I've only seen that in the ANOVOS TK (2 versions now), which are only ABS. So could be a recast.

Short answer then is I'm not sure. Regardless, the helmet looks nice!

Not sure either, most likely recast. If made after Anovos they changed the frown

Outer eye edge comparison?

I don't think it's quite as straight or sharp as the Anovos - but it's getting pretty close.

I got word from the seller that he made it. I recieved it in the mail a few days ago and I got what exactlly what was photographed. Recast or not Im happy with the helmet as its super high quality. I asked him where he sourced the mold to make it and he said it was from a friend in California.
