Bought my helmet back in 2007 so I’ve had it for almost 12 years now.
I don’t wear it and it is not kept in direct sunlight.
There has been no yellowing of the ABS and is still the bright white that it came in straight out of the box.
Transfers are still great shape and not peeling. Over the years a few pieces have come and gone from my collection but this will always be there. Give it the odd dusting from time to time but it is kept in a case. I still get the same day one fascination from the helmet, with all its little oddities such as the tear and hand made construction.
I am so happy with my purchase of the Shepperton Design Studios stunt helmet, it was exactly what I was hoping for and more. The stromtrooper helmet has always been such and iconic part of the Star Wars universe and I am so happy to have my own little piece. I would like to say thank you so much to the creator Andrew Ainsoworth for your amazing work, and I am hoping to buy another one of your helmets soon.
First things first... The stormtrooper helmet from the original trilogy IS Star Wars. It's iconic and instantly recognisable. I have copies of lightsabers but to the casual observer, they're just metal cylinders until you either explain or attach the blade. Being old enough to have seen ESB and ROTJ at the cinema when they first came out, I fell in love with Star Wars at a very early age, it was always a dream of mine to own a stormtrooper helmet, but I had to be absolutely right. Having researched it for many years and seen official replicas and other sites who claim to have an original helmet that they have cast from, they just did not seem right. Either they were too symmetrical or not sharp enough in the detailing or just incorrect in proportion. SDS to the rescue! I now have both stunt and hero helmets sat proudly beside each other and i absolutely could not be more thrilled with them. The stunt in particular is absolutely screen accurate and perfect (or perfectly imperfect you could say). I also cannot praise the staff at SDS enough especially Richard. Thank you so much... You'll be hearing from me again!
I am so very pleased with my stunt helmet,its been a life long dream of mine to own one and thanks to Shepperton Design Studios i am the pround owner of an Original,Thank you Andrew Ainsworth and Thank you to all your wonderful staff keep up the great work!!
