It doesn't look like the ears are separate on that one. Looks more like a one-piece helmet to me.

Same helmet, but from another exhibition:
You can see the glue around the ear!

Ah, cool, so it's just really tightly trimmed. Very nice. .)

Yep.

Many people doesn't like the ROTJ style. But the Tour Suit helmet is certainly one of my favorite. I don't know why.

Certainly due to the good finish and the fact it looks like a manufactured toy ^^

Thanks for finding this Nairod, I'm really pleased we've now finally located one of these suckers - there cant be many of them!

This seems a pretty damn good match to me.....

Thanks to Bigturc for the pics and also to Paul for being like a Rottweiler and NEVER letting this go!

I'm updating my site - finally!

Cheers

It's certainly a stupid question, but I have a several doubt concerning the teeth of this helmet.

Is it me or those aren't trimmed?

But it look as there is something behind the teeth from the inside.

You are correct, the black is some kind of tape which holds the lens material.
Here a better shot:

Thought it would be some kind of tape behind the teeth as on this Jedi helmet:

Nice pics Turrican!

The ESB helmets looks to have this kind of black tape (double adhesive??) instead of glue (like ROTJ) of screw (like ANH).
