I may do a small run of the EODs in a few weeks, probably will be the last run as im getting more into the Halo 4 helmets now, for updates if you use Facebook add our page for updates on this casting and when they will be available www.facebook.com/stonyprops
Actually I rarely sell completed helmets as I usually have to many projects going on so actually painting one up to sell can only be done when I have spare time, I do have some casts of this helmet available but they are raw and unpainted, they will require installing the visor, body work to fix any casting flaws, painting and padding, if your interested in one of those I can help you with that and yes I do accept PayPal
More of a joke than a request. My friend behind me kept saying "hey that looks good! Lets use it as a prop! We have that shitty plastic, string wrap, Master Chief helmet. Lets go for some realism!" I said "The movie is supposed to be stupid. It's a B-movie!" I finally caved in.
This requires a bit of back story. Anyway, we grew up with Evil Dead and Bruce Campbell and wanted to make an "B-movie". I liked making it "so stupid that it's awesome" and the shitty helmet we bought for ten bucks was part of the joke. The movie is supposed to look like it was shot with a $100 budget. But my friend suggested "Add some realism! All we have is Seņor Cojones*!" . My friend thinks realism is important, which he is right, but not for this kind movie. Besides, the poor thing will probably end up staring down the barrel of Seņor Cojones. It's still cool though and if we had a reason would buy it. I'll keep you posted.
*Ah yes,Seņor Cojones. He's the gas powered airsoft pistol we use when we need a pistol. (The thing has been in so many of our movies it might as well be considered an actor). It got that nickname after an unfortunate accident when we first learned that it pulls about a foot low...It missed and hit his thigh but it was so close that it got the nickname. My friend was fine, he only needed some ice.
Why is it every time i respond to someone it's a paragraph of rambles? Curse of the writer.
Its made from paper cardstock, I use a program called pepakura to get the templates to make the helmets, if your interested in learning how you should visit the 405th's website, it teaches you how to build this stuff I'll post a link below, if you decide to give it a try and need help you can get ahold of me on here
The EOD in the pic is a cast copy of the original that I built, so the one pictured is actually made of plastic, the original EOD helmet that that was molded was made from pepakura, and yes I did get the file from the 405th
and here is the one that you see in my pics, this is the one that I built but if I had to do it over again I would do the first model that I linked because its more accurate and includes the neck seal plus it holds its shape better when your peping it
I sometime will sell a cast of this helmet, its a plastic copy of the helmet they do not come painted or a lens in them you have to do that yourself, I do have one that has been painted available its the same color but it does not have the CNM attachment on it and it has a mirror lens instead of a clear lens, let me know if your serious and I can send you pics of it
I sell the decent cast for $125 I also have I guess what you would call a B cast has some dents on it that can be fixed with bondo or painted as is they are not that noticable I sell those for $75 if you want to see a dented one here is a link to a sales thread I have so you can get an idea of what it looks like
well thats cheaper than the guy that said he wanted $400 for an O.D.S.T helmet. and for the inside of the helmet would i have to get pads for it, so it'd fit my head. and wouldn't the dents make it look "battle damaged"
Yeah the dents can make them look like they are battle damaged some people choode to leave them, I always smooth them out for some reason, as for padding, you almost always want to add padding so it will be comfy when you wear it and stays in place on your head, you can use foam that they sell for matress tops or any kind of foam thats soft, just hot glue them inside the helmet, also $400 is alot for a ODST helmet, we sell my ODST helmet for $150 and it includes the lens just needs to be painted
