How would you like to own a unique piece of movie history? This Stormtrooper Crystal Glass Mug is based on the authentic helmet molds created by industrial designer Andrew Ainsworth in 1976.
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, Twickenham based Shepperton Design Studios was approached to turn some fantastic – but potentially tricky to manufacture – costume design concepts into usable props for a new sci-fi film. Using new techniques they had been experimenting with for commercial products, they managed to fulfil the brief and produced 50 sets of armour for the planned shoot in Tunisia.
That film was you know what… and the rest is movie history.
Fortunately for him (and us), Andrew kept hold of the molds. And now, almost 40 years on from that happy set of circumstances, you too can own a piece of film history in the form of this miniature, movie-accurate iconic replica Stormtrooper helmet, made from double-walled borosilicate glass.
It can hold 150ml / 5fl.oz of your favorite beverage. This is the glass you have been looking for…
