ANOVOS is proud to offer the Star Wars The Mandalorian Helmet!
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, they used 3D digital scan technology to capture the precise geometry, right down to 0.2 millimeters of accuracy, to create their exacting reproduction.
This The Mandalorian helmet is the first offering from their craftsmen at their brand new stateside manufacturing facility. Because they own the manufacturing facility they 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. They learned about the paints and processes used by the prop department to create the original helmets. To perfect their finishing process they painted their prototypes side-by-side with an original screen-used helmet which allowed them to instantly compare their paintwork directly to the original piece and make adjustments as needed. Once the factory paint and finishing processes were perfected, their research team directly guided their artists as they hand-painted and weathered each helmet based on the same multi-stepped techniques used to create the originals.
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. (approx. 63 cm head circumference)
Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise, centered on a film series created by George Lucas. It depicts the adventures of various characters “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.”
The first film in the series, Star Wars (later subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope), was released on May 25, 1977 by 20th Century Fox and became a worldwide pop culturephenomenon. It was followed by the similarly successful sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983); these three films constitute the original Star Wars trilogy. A prequel trilogy was later released between 1999 and 2005, which received a more mixed reaction from critics and fans, compared to the original trilogy. All six films were nominated for or won Academy Awards, and were commercial successes, with a combined box office revenue of $4.38 billion, making Star Wars the fifth-highest-grossing film series. The series has spawned an extensive media franchise—the Star Wars expanded universe—including books, television series, computer and video games, and comic books, resulting in significant development of the series’s fictional universe. Star Wars also holds a Guinness World Records title for the “Most successful film merchandising franchise.” In 2012, the total value of the Star Wars franchise was estimated at USD $30.7 billion, including box-office receipts as well as profits from their video games and DVD sales.
In 2012, The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.06 billion and announced three new Star Wars films; the first film of that trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was released on December 18, 2015. 20th Century Fox retains the physical distribution rights to the first two Star Wars trilogies, owning permanent rights for the original 1977 film and holding the rights to Episodes I–III, V and VI until May 2020. The Walt Disney Studios owns digital distribution rights to all the Star Wars films, excluding A New Hope.
