The officially licensed Star Wars collectible (Biker) Scout Trooper Helmet will be one of the most accurate reproductions of this incredible helmet produced to date! The master molds were made from the original master tools ILM used to make the screen-used helmets.
This original helmets were made in vacuum formed ABS. This EFX Limited Edition helmet is made in high quality, hand-laid fiberglass.
The Imperial Scout Troopers were a specially trained garrison of the Stormtroopers. They were outfitted with light armor which made them more mobile and efficient for their reconnaissance duties. The signature piece of equipment utilized by the Scout Troopers was the 74-Z Speeder Bike, thus earning them the nickname “Biker Scouts”
The Scout Troopers were first seen in the Star Wars saga in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi on the planet of Endor where the uncompleted, but fully functional, new Death Stars’ shield generator was located. A team of rebels that included Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 with the help of the Ewoks, defeated the scout troopers and stormtroopers and destroyed the shield generator, allowing Lando Calrissian and the X-wing pilot to once again destroy the empire’s mighty Death Star.
The EFX master patterns were made from the original wood patterns, thus there was no digital scanning or 3D modeling used to produce this helmet. This is the most accurate reproduction of the Scout Trooper helmet possible with original decal sheet of the symbols and markings.
