8 Of Our Favorite Star Wars Helmets
Because in a galaxy far, far away, nothing suggests you’re a formidable opponent quite like a good helmet! That’s why we were delighted when StarWars.com came up with an awesome list focused on the mightiest headgear in the galaxy.
Here are 8 of our favorites from the obvious (Darth Vader of course) to the obscure. Let us know which one is your favorite!
We’ll start with one of the most talked-about Star Wars characters of the year (move over baby Yoda!.) If you’ve watched The Mandalorian on Disney+ then you know one of the things that set the Mandalorian culture apart is their mighty impressive armor. You had Boba and Jango Fett and now Mando. This beloved character sports a helmet that has become absolutely legendary. As StarWars.com notes, the simple T-shaped visor, drop-down viewfinder/antenna and beksar construction make it one of the coolest helmets in the planet.
2. Imperial Stormtrooper
A true original, this is arguably one of the most iconic helmets in the galaxy. A StarWars.com suggests, “When you look into the visage of an Imperial stormtrooper, you’re looking into the face of the entire Empire.”
Though they certainly are good at adding an ominous tone to any scene, Luke Skywalker reminds us that they aren’t the most practical when it comes to visibility.
3. Darth Vader
Here is the helmet that started it all. Anakin Skywalkers mask is the stuff of many a childhood nightmare. With its samurai-inspired tapered look, big eyes and front grill nothing embodies the presence of the dark side of the force more than this iconic outfit. And then there’s the voice…
4. Kylo Ren
Similar to Darth Vader, the master of the Knights of Ren wears his own custom helmet. Its “weathered exterior” adds a particularly scary feel to the character. Then there are the chrome strips accenting the gaze of this nefarious leader. Kylo destroyed his helmet in The Last Jedi but it was repaired in The Rise of Skywalker with all of the cracks adding an extra feeling of tension when Kylo enters a scene.
5. Imperial Red Guard
Nothings cuts a more striking figure in a sea of silver and chrome then the vivid red helmets of the Emperor’s trusted guards. These streamlined helmets feature a simple eyeslit but the smooth slightly elongated fronts have always made these look slightly more sinister.
6. Death Trooper
As if Storm Troopers weren’t bad enough, these Death Troopers are absolutely bone-chilling. Their black armour features helmets with green accents and their slightly protruding, angular fronts make them look less humanoid and more droid.
7. Ubese Helmet
When I think helmets, this is one of the first that comes to mind. These Ubese helmets are perfect for hiding your identity for let’s say a rescue mission!? It comes with a voice scrambler and is perfect for hiding facial expressions making it the ultimate disguise.
8. Sidon Ithano
Last but not least is this Delphidian pirate with a finned crimson mask. Called a Kaleesh mask, it features blacked-out eyeholes and prefectly hides the identity of this humanoid alien giving the impression that he is something else entirely!
