Leonard Carson of San Diego Composities designed a carbon fiber Stormtrooper helmet that is most likely more technically advanced than the helmet offered by Star Wars’ fictional universe. Made entirely of carbon fiber, the helmet weighs in at just over 1 pound including the foam placed on the inside.
Unfortunately the helmet has been sold for $3,500 after appearing on an episode of Pawn Stars and the other four that were made are not for sale. In a word, good luck getting your hand on one short of making your own.
