EFX Collectibles, a part of the popular collectible company Sideshow Toys, has unveiled a first look at their Star-Lord prop replica helmet.
The two piece replica uses fiberglass, metal, and plastic to give an authentic, life-size replica of the legendary outlaw's helmet. The helmet, which will be available in a limited edition of 750, was even recreated using the original molds that made Star-Lord's helmet in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film.
The official press release from EFX is as follows:
"This EFX Star-Lord helmet is a faithful reproduction of the iconic helmet worn by Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy. With the provenance of the master patterns made from an original screen-used helmet from the Marvel Studios archives, the 2 piece construction, accurate paint scheme, and even the hardware detail, we are confident that you will be proud to display this helmet as part of your prop replica collection for years to come."
As with most of EFX's helmets, this replica is expected to be used as a displayed collectible. While you could probably wear the helmet yourself, the company does not recommend it.
If you're interested in owning this helmet for yourself, it can be yours for just under $700.
The helmet is currently available for pre-order, but don't count on it arriving before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out, as it is expected to ship out between May and July of this year.
Check out our gallery of the first look at the helmet below.
