If Stormtroopers Were Animals, These Would Be Their Helmets
Yes, you’re seeing this right. These are Imperial stormtrooper helmets shaped like animals.
They’re the work of Blank William, a designer from New York City and Star Wars fan. And no, they’re not real. At least not yet. William, who says he grew up idolizing Luke and Leia and all the rest, designed the glossy renderings as an homage to the Imperial stormtrooper helmet designed in 1976, which itself is slightly animalistic. There’s a hippo, an elephant, and my personal favorite, a rhino. Given the interest they’ve generated, William hopes to actually produce them.
Is this sacrilege or brilliant? It might be a little bit of both.
