Hi, I'm trying to expand my Lego Empire with a couple of Imperial AT-ST pilots, and would like to construct some helmets for them. I have checked out a lot of the customs on fbtb, and was wondering what is the best method.

Question

Has anyone tried the method using a standard motorcycle helmet and the neck protector from a castle helmet? Has anyone got any hi-res pics of the results? How does it turn out? Are there any other methods which are not on this site?

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated! Very Happy

This sounds like it's along the lines of what you're thinking:

(EDIT-) It looks like that's just a frame, but here's a link to the main page. He's got steps for making the helmet under the Instructions section:

Thanks Morgan19!

Yeah, that's the method I was thinking of trying. I was just wondering if anyone else had tried it and what their results were like. Does anybody have any higher res pics of these helmets? So I can get a better idea of how they might turn out.

Is the method used by AZTrooper the same?

I tried my hand at making some simple helmets using nothing but Lego pieces. You can judge for yourself: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=102226

I used the method from Building Empires to make my AT-ST drivers. Here's how they turned out:

Pepa's helmets are pretty tight, and an added bonus for not having to butcher parts! But where did you get all those skateboarding helmets? I can't seem to locate them on bricklink

ive been planning on making one for a long time. my plan was actually to take a snowtrooper hemet/backpack, and just remove the front, so all thats left is the actual helmet. then just paint it grey.

Take a Snowtrooper helmet and cut the face out of it. With a little paint it'll work!
