Here is a thread I started at the RPB:

Might be old news for some.

The guys at the Prop Store have been lucky enough to find this little gem, albeit a little battered!

Can't believe someone sanded this down - that is just criminal!

I am really pleased that more and more of these helmets are turning up, and residing in the UK. I would love a Hero to be found in private hands...

What does everyone think?

Man, I would absolutely LOVE to own that helmet. It looks über sharp and even has the sixth tooth cut out. Has it been matched to any of the on-screen helmets yet?

I think someone said they have, although it would be hard with all the sanding.

This one would be perfect for casting...

Well, not many helmets have all six teeth cut out... that should at least narrow it down some... unless it was done in the "restoration" attempt.

I really hope it is left as-is, as it would be a shame to do anything to it! :eek

So much Potential. Looks great apart from the sanding. Details still look sharp and it looks a candidate for casting as you say.

Can't believe I've missed this thread! :dope

It sure looks great, but sanding such a piece is......:ac10

Any more news on this piece? Have it been narrowed down as to what helmet it really is?

Hey NHM, I believe this is exactly what you were looking for. It looks like this HDPE helmet has been already matched with one in tantive IV.

Enjoy it :salut

Yes. I remember it being possibly matched to that helmet... but wasn't there doubt about a perfect match? Can't remember which forum it was on, though.

I thought the back was damaged quite badly and matched a scene from Tantive IV. No price on the site. What a tease.

Personally I don't think the screen match is right. Not surprising as the dealers are the slackest people when it comes to research :rolleyes

I think is a possible match,...the image is very small and still offer doubts...anyway, I will try to find it in the movie and get a few captures.

Cheers

These are the Tantive IV captures I promised. Still it is hard to tell...
