Helmet Comparisons

Its not until you start to look that you realise the different types of helmets available. And whether they're licensed or fan-made, the difference in quality is huge. The photos below show the real helmets (of which there where many variations in most cases), and the different licensed and non-licensed versions. Note that in almost all cases, due to them being essentially 100% hand-made, they are understandably FAR superior to their licensed equivalents.

Size Comparison

The two images above show the difference in dimensions between the GF/Follano copy (originating from an original ANH helmet) and the fan-sculptured FX (right). 

Above has been put together by Chuck, he used it to help him decide which helmet to go for. Note that the helmets are not to scale, but its still very useful if you want a quick comparison between helmets. Click on the picture for a larger version.
