Anovos First Order Stormtrooper Helmet Mic Tip

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the great topic how to get the Anovos kit more acurate. 

 

Unfortunately I found no hints for the helmet mic tip.

 

In the original costume and the packaging the mic tip is pointing forward.

 

The mic tip of the Anovos helmet is pointing down.

 

Is it a production failure? Have you modified your Anovos mic tips?

I just received my injection molded bucket from Anovos and I was wondering the same thing. Also,how accurate is this regarding the overall size of the helmet?

I'm looking to buy one, do you recommend it?  I can't find a review post on here.  Seems like a great option for a completed helmet that's not fiberglass for trooping.

Is there any source for aluminium MicTips to upgrade the Anovos helmet? I would like to replace the stock one.

The one on the left is not a hero and if it's an original it's a fiberglass stunt. You can tell by the seam lines are fused and not separate pieces. Actually looking at both helmets neither are accurate. Also the brow trim is the dead giveaway both are replicas.

The one on the left is the fibreglass bucket, whereas the one on the right is the ABS injection moulded bucket.

I have ordered the Anovos , but after looking at the photos I would prefer the fiberglass one. Once in hand I might have to sell it. Should arrive in January, if disappointed it will be returned or in the for sale thread. Bummer

 

Is there a link to the fiberglass stunt?

 

Thanks

Ok just found photos of the helmet on right in another post looks to me that version is really much more accurate to the real deal.

The left is not an original. It is also an anovos produced helmet.

So the mic is a production failure? It really bothers me because when i look like pictures like this from the 501st Costume Reference Library, it (almost) looks faced straight forwards.

I'm in the process of replacing my mictip with a more accurate resin one. :)<br>

I have no idea how it'll turn out. But hopefully it'll look nice and screen-accurate.

None of the two helmets is completely accurate. I have to agree with Dan, the supposed original looks very much like anovos and not like an actual production used helmet. The angle of the mic tip on the anovos standard line however is quite accurate, though the shape and positioning is still a little bit off.

 

Look at this helmet for example: http://cdni.wired.co.uk/1920x1280/d_f/EP7_IA_117198.jpg

I made a thread about this with comparison photos in terms of shape on this forum  :) I totally agree with you Cody, the shape is still a little bit off.
