I think you will find that the Red plug thing on the front is actually a 3 phase electrical inlet that has been slightly shaped to fit the curves of the helmet. It does not look exactly the same as the one on the helmet, as the design has changed a bit over the years.
In the UK they are commonly known as Commando Connectors.

That's what I thought it was for years too! Smile But having seen Steve's photos of the original RAF helmets I don't think there's any doubt that it's a genuine helmet piece.

jtparker has been encouraging me to post my photos, so here you go. These we taken twenty five years ago. Still years after the film had been made, but the helmet has twenty five years less wear and tear on it than the ones in some of the other photos might be showing. I don't know if they really show anything more than you guys have already got, but I thought I'd toss 'em your way anyway.

Interesting new photos, thanks a lot for sharing !

BTW, is it the helmet still owned by Bob Burns, or another one ? Could you tell us a little more about those pics you've posted recently on the board ?

Great pics.

I believe this is the helmt Bob has because the visor is cracked in the same location.
Bob told me when he got the helmet is was loose in a box just banging around in it. He thinks that is how it got damaged.

Yes indeedy, it's Bob's helmet. I haven't spoken to Bob in years and years, and often feel guilty for it. When I started in film Alien was already nearly five years old and Bob had the majority of the artifacts from it in his collection.

Talking about Bob Burns, you should take a look at this... (clic on the VIDEO button on that page)

There's a large section devoted to his A L I E N 1979 halloween show...



Very cool !

I couldn't get the sound to sync with the images on that move and I still loved it! Thanks for the URL. I enjoyed the time machine segment in particular. It was a real joy to see how it was constructed. In honor of that sentiment I submit the following contribution to the conversation.

Dragging this one to the top.
Anyone have a line on one of the base helmets? Or info if any replicas are in the works?
I think this would make a great companion piece for the Nostromo AES helmet.

Here is a Sketchup version of the emergency helmet



There are a number of props I am or will be putting together for the Bridge modal I,'m working on
