If you are looking forward to the Premier of the new Star Wars, The Mandalorian TV series that will be arriving with the launch of the new Disney streaming service, Disney+ next month.
You might be pleased to know that Anovos has announced they have begun production of officially licensed, full-size Mandalorian replica helmets, which will be priced at $650 each. The helmets are currently in production and will be made available at a later date but you can register your interest directly by jumping over to the official Anovos website by following the link below.
Anovos explain more about the helmets production and finishing process.
“Not only is this helmet an authentic and highly detailed true-to-life replica you can display, but it is also a fully wearable adult costume accessory. Each helmet is finely crafted of fiberglass and is appointed with a fully-lined interior that can fit heads up to a size 8 US hat. Each helmet, from start to finish, has been carefully hand-crafted by our skilled craftsman located here in The United States of America.
This helmet is very different from its predecessors while still keeping true to its lineage from existing Mandalorian helmets. With access to the film-used helmets from The Mandalorian, we used 3D digital scan technology to capture the precise geometry, right down to 0.2 millimeters of accuracy, to create our exacting reproduction.
This The Mandalorian helmet is the first offering from our craftsmen at our brand new stateside manufacturing facility. Because we own the manufacturing facility we can implement a more artisan “hands-on” approach to the manufacturing process. This allows for careful oversight of each product’s production cycle to help ensure your expectations of accuracy and quality are faithfully met.
The Mandalorian’s helmet may appear to have a simple pewter finish but it’s deceptively complex. We learned about the paints and processes used by the prop department to create the original helmets. To perfect our finishing process we painted our prototypes side-by-side with an original screen-used helmet which allowed us to instantly compare our paintwork directly to the original piece and make adjustments as needed. Once our factory paint and finishing processes were perfected, our research team directly guided our artists as they hand-painted and weathered each helmet based on the same multi-stepped techniques used to create the originals.”
