If you are a fan of custom Star Wars pieces then you will probably already own something from Arealight. Known for producing high quality printed custom designs their range includes Clone Trooper helmets, Mando helmets, Hair pieces, Jet Packs, Twi’lek heads, and Female torso’s.
We are really excited to be able to show you a sneak preview of the latest batch of helmets – Wave 5, and these are not released until next week! All of these helmets are based off the Clone Wars or Extended Universe.
The Blue 501st helmet is based of a 501st ARF Trooper and inspired by Boomer from the Clone Wars Games, Kix from Season 4 Clone wars Umbara Arc and a 501st AT-RT trooper (ARC Heavy Gunner). The helmet sports a crisp blue printing on the sun visor a long with a line down the center. There is also a bit of blue and black detail print for the face details. This is a great helmet and nicely designed.
The Kix Helmet has blue printing around the visor and on the back details of the helmet. It is printed onto a Commander helmet, but since it has an open visor, there is a white gap between the head and the blue print.
The 501st AT RT Helmet is a very hard helmet to print however we think they have done a really good. There are a few print issues, like the eyes not being fully covered and the top visor having a bit of white, however we still think its a great piece to have.
The Shadow Clone Trooper Helmet is one of our favourites and has a silver and gunmetal print. The detailing on the side is a gunmetal colour while the face details and the markings around the fin are silver.
The Fox Helmet looks really good however there has been printing problems when doing white onto dark colours. Some of the helmets are off white however this helmet still looks great.
Finally the Shadow Airborne Trooper Helmet is another silver and gunmetal print.These two colours go great on black and the printing is perfectly aligned with the grooves as well.
