The original helmet was made from an APH-6B Vietnam era flight helmet used by the US Navy, circa 1969. This helmet included the dual visor cover. A ridge was also added over the top from front to back. The helmet was then cast in halves to make the master pattern and the X-wing pilot helmets were then vacuum formed from these patterns. Upon assembly, a strip of ABS was added to hide the parting line of the two halves.

The microphone is from a Racal Mini-lite headset. This is the same headset that Luke and Han wore when fighting the TIE Fighters in their escape from the Death Star in A New Hope.

The helmet worn by Luke in A New Hope is the same helmet that he wore in The Empire Strikes Back. However, there were some minor differences. The ESB helmet had heavier weathering, the microphone tube was on his right side and the noise attenuator at the microphone tip was missing. Also, the chin cup is threaded on the inside.

The EFX X-wing pilot helmet is a faithful recreation of the iconic helmet that Luke Skywalker wore piloting his X-wing Fighter, Red 5, on his epic trench run on the Death Star.

Utilizing a digital scan of an original X-wing helmet in the Lucasfilm archive and an actual APH-6B helmet, castings of an original visor and chin cup, EFX’s engineers, model-makers and artists painstakingly constructed the master patterns to produce this prop replica.
