Our new officially licensed, Limited Edition (Biker) Scout Trooper Helmet will be one of the most accurate reproduction of this incredible helmet produced to date. It has the all the pedigree of our Legend Edition line since the master molds were made from the original master tools ILM used to make the screen-used helmets. As with the Legend Edition, there is no digital scanning or 3D modeling used, only original parts and tooling. We even used an original decal sheet from ILM to make our markings and symbols that are seen on the helmet! You can call this helmet "Legend - Light"!
This original helmets were made in vacuum formed ABS. This EFX Limited Edition helmet is made in high quality, hand-laid fiberglass.
The Imperial Scout Troopers were a specially trained garrison of the Stormtroopers. They were outfitted with light armor which made them more mobile and efficient for their reconnaissance duties. The signature piece of equipment utilized by the Scout Troopers was the 74-Z Speeder Bike, thus earning them the nickname “Biker Scouts”
The Scout Troopers were first seen in the Star Wars saga in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi on the planet of Endor where the uncompleted, but fully functional, new Death Stars’ shield generator was located. A team of rebels that included Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 with the help of the Ewoks, defeated the scout troopers and stormtrooper and destroyed the shield generator, allowing Lando Calrissian and the X-wing pilot to once again destroy the empire's mighty Death Star.
The Biker Scout helmet and armor was designed by Nilos Rodis-Jamero. As with many of the imperial helmets made not only for this production, but for the entire original trilogy, this helmet was made in vacuum formed ABS plastic. The beautiful master patterns were a piece of art in themselves, as they were made in wood, like the way toys patterns were made back before the digital age. The symbols and markings on the helmet were hand applied decals. You can see the lineage of these elements to the original stormtrooper helmets first seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This helmet had the unique feature of the pivoting visor, even though you never saw the helmet with the visor up. The unique symbol seen on the side of the visor was designed by ILM’s Pete Ronzani. The symbol was actually a logo he designed for his own personal business card. If you turn the symbol clockwise 90°, you can see his initials “P A R”!
The EFX master patterns were made from these original wood patterns, thus there was no digital scanning or 3D modeling used to produce this helmet. Thus, this is the most accurate reproduction of the Scout Trooper helmet possible. We even had an original decal sheet of the symbols and markings to produce our decals.

March 16, 2018
The helmets have just cleared customs we are arranging the the transfer of the product to our forwarder so they can deliver them to our warehouse
March 12, 2018
We have just been informed that the helmets are still waiting to be cleared through US Customs. According to the forwarder, the US Customs department is very congested. However, we are still hoping to receive the helmets this week.
The balance of the helmets are now scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on April 2.
March 7, 2018
The helmets have arrived in Los Angeles on schedule yesterday. Unfortunately, our shipment was chosen for an intensive exam, so the Customs clearance is going to take a few extra days.
Also, the balance of the helmets are schedule to leave Hong Kong next week.
February 9, 2018
We have been able to confirm space on a ship before the Chinese New Years holiday for approximately half of the allocation for the US. So, the rest will be shipped right after the factory returns from the holiday. The boat is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on March 5. Then into US Customs. If there are no delays in the US Customs clearance formalities, we should be able to start shipping later the same week.
For our international customers who purchased their helmet through an international retailer, the distributors took possession of their helmets last week in Hong Kong and thus, they ship using their own freight forwarder. So, unfortunately, we do not have access to their shipping schedule.
February 7, 2018
First, we would like to thank all of you for your patience! As many of you know, we encountered some production issues with the Scout Trooper helmet, including the first factory going bankrupt, and then having to start over at a new factory. So, we appreciate your understanding!
Well, the wait is now over and we are in the process preparing to ship!
If you are one of our international customers and you purchased your Limited Edition Scout Trooper helmet from one of our international retailers, they are already en route to the distributor in the territory your country is located in.
If you are a US customer, we are working to get some, if not all of the helmets on a boat this weekend, before the Chinese New Years holiday begins. However, since the holiday is quickly approaching, and the factories are closing as of February 10, bookings are very tight. We will post on the website any updates to the shipping schedule.
If you pre-ordered your helmet on our website, we be in contact you shortly to confirm your information and with instructions to complete your order.
Once again, we thank you for your patience and understanding!
