Five Stormtrooper Helmets That Will Have You Lining Up to Join the Empire


Stormtroopers have the reputation for being faceless mooks, near the lowest rung in the Imperial army. This is propaganda spread solely by the enemies of the Empire. There is always the chance of promotion. You may end up working near the Sith Lord himself!

In addition, the uniform regulations are more varied than posters would have you believe. These five helmets are just a few of the multiple possibilities for the ambitious stormtrooper ready to serve his Empire in far-flung locations.

For the Environmentally Conscious Stormtrooper

Just because you work for an organization that destroys planets doesn’t mean you can’t care for the environment. The Emperor shoots lightning, after all, and what could be more environmental than that?

The stormtrooper who wants to honor his Emperor and take care of the environment has some excellent choices this season.
