Hasbro has released details on some upcoming Star Wars items ahead of the NYC Toy Fair, and the Black Series Poe Dameron helmet is definitely the star of the show. But it does more that just look good my friends.
Put on this deluxe helmet from THE BLACK SERIES and get ready to take flight as skilled X-WING fighter pilot POE DAMERON. Experience battle like never before with a surround sound speaker system that amplifies X-WING and TIE FIGHTER vehicle sounds and transmits communications from loveable sidekick BB-8. This unique helmet features exquisite deco and movie-accurate detail, putting collectors right in the middle of the action.
BB-8 talks to you! How awesome is that? Unfortunately, there’s a catch. It’s made for kids 8 and up, so I’m going to assume that I can’t fit my giant head into one, and that is a dammed shame. They really need to make things like this in adult sizes. At any rate, the Black Series Poe Dameron Electronic Helmet will be available for $80 when it’s released later this year.
