I personally, am a massive Star Wars nerd. I even have a Storm Trooper sitting on my desk as I write this. I’ve seen every single movie more than a dozen times, and yes that includes the prequels. I’ll also start a fight with anyone that thinks Revenge of the Sith was a better movie than The Phantom Menace.
However, my passion for all things related to motorcycles and automobiles rarely overlaps with my passion for Star Wars besides some awful custom cars and painted helmets that sort of resemble something from the movies. That is until now.
Currently, a host of DOT-approved and other motorcycle helmets are being sold on eBay for all your cosplaying and motorcycling needs. You have everything from an almost perfect Darth Vader helmet to the all-new First Order Storm Trooper.
If I hadn’t just got a new helmet, I probably would have already bought the First Order Storm Trooper motorcycle helmet and been the most baller person riding around Los Angeles. Although, I am also partial to the Boba Fett helmet that looks fairly accurate to the movies.
The helmets range from $50 to $300 and offer some impressive workmanship. I will however, end with that although some of these are DOT-approved helmets, modifying the shells of any helmet is risky and could potentially become hazardous if you’re ever in the situation you need your helmet to save your life.
Maybe if we beg Shoei, Icon, or Arai enough though, the companies will build us a DOT legal and non-customized Star Wars helmet series?
