Few fandoms are as viciously loyal to a franchise as the one surrounding Star Wars. Even fewer are the fans enthusiastic enough to gear up like their favorite characters. But it is exactly that kind of sheer gusto and admiration that Anovos was banking on when they decided to make a film-accurate wearable replica of the Death Troopers’ helmet from Rogue One. Which is doubly true, considering that the film hasn’t even come out yet. That being said, the quality with which this ready-to-wear replica has been made almost guarantees that it will be a big hit amongst the most fanatical enthusiasts.
It certainly helps that the prop was designed using on-screen assets. That’s right, the fiberglass shell wasn’t just made to look like an elite trooper helmet – they really used the ones from the film as reference, digitally scanning every minutia for accuracy. But it isn’t just a fancy head bucket. Inside, they’ve mounted an adjustment system so you can ensure that the helmet fits snugly on your head. This badass costume accessory is on pre-sale for $615.
