After I see detailed pictures of the Rogue One X-Wing Helmets I was surprised they looks very similar to the upcoming Anovos Helmet and the Anovos looks similar to the X-Wing Helmet from Far Away Creation.
I buy one of the Far Away or Moncal helmets last Nov. on ebay. The only difference to the Rogue One helmet was the visor.So I cast it and made a more accurate Rogue One Visor. Next I found the the Earpads which comes from Imperialboots and so I had a Rogue One X-Wing helmet.
The original helmets had an innerhelmet and movable Visor like my Far Away one. We not seen Porkins in the movie but some shots from the production and I think about the differnce to the OT Porkins helmet its not Porkins it is an unknown Pilot but I love the design and begin to paint my helmet. Next are the decals which where on print at this time and the black padding on the back .

Second to last on the left... Porkins?


That paintjob is not Porkins, but possibly another Tierfon Yellow Aces pilot.

With all of the recent mentions and links, (Rey's Helmet in TFA, and similar ones in Rogue one) I'm hoping for a standalone Tierfon Yellow Aces movie or at least a mention on Star Wars Rebels.
