What helmets work with Galaxy Patrol Armor?

Postby Theblackdog » Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:50 pm

I'm thinking about making a Bricklink order to finally get myself some decent T.L.A. and Britannian minifigs, and I'm planning on outfitting my T.L.A. heavy troops with Galaxy Patrol armor. I don't really want to use the standard helmet, though, so I'm trying to find out which other helmets fit before I buy a bunch of them. If I could ask a favor, could somebody else with a set of Galaxy Patrol armor please try it out with each of these helmet types to see if they fit:

#1

#2
Image
#3

I kinda doubt any of them will, but I want to make sure. I don't need to see pics or anything, just tell me if they fit securely.

Thanks.

I tried the first one, and it doesn't work. I can't find the second helmet, but I have a feeling it wouldn't work. The third one would work if the collar was a bit lower, but I don't think it will.

Obviously, it would be better to hear from someone who knows for sure.

That's pretty much what I expected. The first helmet is going to be the standard helmet for T.L.A. troops, though, so I had to try it. I'll probably go with #2. Thanks for your help guys.

Do put on a visor if possible.

New Visored Space Helmet fits, and so do the OG visored helmets. #3 does not fit.

Thanks, but I'm not sure what you mean by either of those.

I think the "new visored helmets" are these:

And the "OG visored helmets" are the standard space helmet you said you didn't want to use. The only problem I have with the new helmets is that they sit too high on the head, and they look terrible with some faces. However, putting a plain black (or other colour) head underneath can have a nice effect when paired with a visor.

Or just a black visor, and any old head you've been avoiding the use of.

The visors with the square hole in the front look really good on the space marine armor.

EDIT: It's called frogman visor and it's number is 6090.
