This is a made to order Custom V2 Imperial Biker Scout Trooper Helmet. The V2 helmet is an improved version of the V1 and features more accurate details over all along with other improvments. It was made to fit my head which is in the standard XL for most adult males. Ask us for a size chart if you are unsure about sizing. This helmet is assembled from a 3-D printed PLA plastic and is then smoothed and painted. All other details are then applied. I also take the time to add a high gloss effect through out the helmet to make it look more like the original prop. All black venting is made from black vinyl spandex. The cushions are FMA foam helmet pads which are attached by velcro and are easily removable AND washable. There are also dual ducted fans which are attached to dual 9v battery packs that can be turned on and off at will. The visor comes from OPLE Props in Germany and is one way mirrored someone can see your eyes but you can see clearly. All graphics are made from high quality decals.
THE "DIY HELMET" OPTION IS FOR A PRINTED SET OF PARTS WHICH YOU CAN ASSEMBLE AND PAINT ON YOUR OWN.We recommend sanding by hand with 220 grit sandpaper and working up to 400-600 grit for final smoothing.********DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF ELECTRIC TOOLS I.E.

Custom V2 Air Conditioned Fully Decked Out Imperial Biker Scout Trooper Helmet
Since scout troopers were light scout sniper units, their armor was noticeably lighter than normal stormtrooper armor. Their helmets had visors derived from macrobinocular scopes that allowed them to see longer distances, for sniping and reconnaissance purposes. These visors also equipped with terrain-following tactical readouts, and were capable of detecting energy emissions, night vision, and designated target magnification. On their torso, the armor had several packs, allowing the trooper to carry various equipment. Their power unit backpack was also modified to act as a storage backpack for various gear. In addition, the built-in comlink systems in their helmets were also boosted to ensure long-range distance calls. Most of the equipment they carried was used for survival and camping, as they did much of it during long scouting treks. Scout troopers were trained and equipped to be able to survive without assistance from other Imperial forces for long periods of time.
