I’m a fan of Star Wars and also a fan of Avatar but not necessarily when you combine the two…although I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen them brought together. I can however appreciate the work and effort put into this. The helmet was made by artist Denise Vasquez for the 501st TK Project and will be used by Lucas Films as a promotional item.
It’s a really cool concept and I like the idea behind it…it’s just that it kind of creeps me out. I really love the dreads of the Na’vi but the Stormtrooper mask does not lend itself to good looks. I’ll bet there are more than a few Star Wars fanboys cringing in their robes right now.
