How a Stormtrooper helmet is made, from start to finish

Andrew Ainsworth built the original Stormtrooper helmet (and recently won a case against George Lucas to sell reproductions of said helmet in the U.K.). Here's a 13-minute video of Ainsworth building a mask — watch as it's transformed from an unassuming hunk of plastic to decorative headgear for Imperial cannon fodder.

That was awesome but...

Was I the only one who noticed the complete lack of any safety gear, except for 1 glove during the forming of the helmet back? Christ how does this guy still have all his fingers.

Loved how he just seemingly eyeballed all the details and still got them to come out perfectly. Tho he could have skipped over all the measuring.
