ANOVOS has updated their website with production information for their new The Mandalorian replica helmet. Priced at $649, the first wave of wearable helmets is expected to ship out to customers by Thanksgiving. Check out the product details below and be sure to take the supplied source link for more.
You’ve seen the STAR WARS™ The Mandalorian™ trailer, the Entertainment Weekly photos, and the incredible behind-the-scenes pictures from StarWars.com. These teasers have created an epic level of excitement in Star Wars fandom. With the most attention being given to the intricate costume the main character wears. It embodies the iconic look of the classic Star Wars universe by giving a strong nod to previous beloved characters who have worn Mandalorian™ armor while updating that classic aesthetic with a distinctly unique flair.
Here is great news for our collectors – ANOVOS is poised and ready to ship a product before the release of the show! Due to our direct access to the filming prop, advanced research and development efforts, and stateside manufacturing capability we have produced a replica that could be used right on the set of The Mandalorian!
This helmet is very different from its predecessors while still keeping true to its lineage from existing Mandalorian helmets. With access to the film-used helmets from The Mandalorian, we used 3D digital scan technology to capture the precise geometry, right down to 0.2 millimeters of accuracy, to create our exacting reproduction.
This The Mandalorian helmet is the first offering from our craftsmen at our brand new stateside manufacturing facility. Because we own the manufacturing facility we can implement a more artisan “hands-on” approach to the manufacturing process. This allows for careful oversight of each product’s production cycle to help ensure your expectations of accuracy and quality are faithfully met.
HAND-PAINT AND FINISH:
The Mandalorian’s helmet may appear to have a simple pewter finish but it’s deceptively complex. We learned about the paints and processes used by the prop department to create the original helmets. To perfect our finishing process we painted our prototypes side-by-side with an original screen-used helmet which allowed us to instantly compare our paintwork directly to the original piece and make adjustments as needed. Once our factory paint and finishing processes were perfected, our research team directly guided our artists as they hand-painted and weathered each helmet based on the same multi-stepped techniques used to create the originals.
Not only is this helmet an authentic and highly detailed true-to-life replica you can display, but it is also a fully wearable adult costume accessory. Each helmet is finely crafted of fiberglass and is appointed with a fully-lined interior that can fit heads up to a size 8 US hat. Each helmet, from start to finish, has been carefully hand-crafted by our skilled craftsman located here in The United States of America.
