Another TLJ Stormtrooper helmet? Close to screen used prop. At least I try :-)

Recommended Posts

Good evening fellow builders :-)

 

I want to share my latest project. I really love the TLJ Stormtrooper design and wanted to create my own version.

But due to the fact that there are literally SO many out there already, I thought about what I can add to make it more unique.

 

I thought about making it a 3 piece helmet. Main helmet, black insert and nose plate + the additional greeblies.

 

This would result in very sharp lines between the black and white. The black insert will we SLA printed, molded and cast in deep black resin. 

 

I got the 3D model from Die 3D Schmide and want to share 2 pictures. :-)

The parts are getting printed at the moment, I will post more pictures when I have the physical prop in hand :)

 

All the best

You guys know that I've made TFA helmets and TLJ Helmets.

 

The TFA that was designed by Roy Gilsing was a work of art and really as close as I've ever seen to the screen used prop.

 

The TLJ offering I had was much less so. It was a great helmet but it had some issues. 

 

I've had a look at the files and renders of this helmet from Dino and I can say without a doubt it's the best helmet you will find without paying your first born. The construction will tkae the hardest part of finishing these helmets and make it easy. Just paint the separate colors, done :D 

 

I think this TLJ helmet will be the best available and the absolute helmet to have. I'm already lining up for mine.

Thank you guys. The print takes a bit longer than expected. But the goal is to have the main master done by the end of November since Im flying over the the UK to meet with Luke from JJ Industries and I'll bring the master for molding and some other stuff :P

Question.. will these be available as files that can be downloaded/printed, or just as a finished product?

No, I won't share the files. The helmet will be available either as a kit or as a finished helmet

Even if you only offer kits, I think it's a great step in the right direction.  Don't blame you for not sharing files if you don't want to.  The ANOVOS helmets, etc. all had some flaws, so this could make a great upgrade.

Hey guys!

I decided to open a pre-ordering. All the time I wanted to prevent pre-orderings. I simply dont like taking money when I dont have something in hand but sometimes it is necessary.

For transpareny: I ordered the 3d print in PLA, which was a mistake. It would take me months to sand and prep for molding. I need to buy a new print in ABS which is a lot easier to sand and finish. Furthermore the insert piece need to be printed in SLA, which will cost me about 500 Euro alone.

 

To cover these costs Im opening 10 spots in total for 175 Euro. For that, you'll receive a kit that includes the main helmet, insert, all greebs, visor and nose plate. If you want a finished helmet, you can order one for sure but the finishing fee will be collected once everything is done. If you want the kit only, shipping fees will be also collected once everything is done.

 

I do take payments via PayPal invoices only, you're protected through PayPal but have to cover the PP fees. If you want to send via F&F, thats also possible, I will send out the invoice without PP fees, you'll have to send the money via friends manually and I will mark the invoice as paid. If you're interested, please send me a PM with your PayPal / EMail address, full name and shipping address.
