Y’know, Batman and Anakin Skywalker have a lot in common. They were both orphaned (sort of), they both wear black, they both distort their voices and, as viewers of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice can attest, they both do stupid things for reasons that lack any real sense, logic or understanding.
For those reasons and more, propsman Julian Checkley decided to mash together Batman’s cowl with a Scout Trooper helmet (which, y’know, isn’t Vader’s helmet, but still). This mash-up helmet was created for the Biker Scout Helmet project, a Lucasfilm-approved effort that calls on creative individuals to make interesting custom helmets based on those worn by Scout Troopers to be auctioned off for charity.
This is one of forty helmets being auctioned to raise money for Star Wars: Force For Change.
