Prop Story
"Wedge Antilles is one of the few pilots of the Rebel Alliance who not only fought, but survived all 3 of the epic battles of the original trilogy. Wedge was assigned the wing position of Red Two and flew his X-wing starfighter in the Battle of Yavin against the Empire's mightiest weapon, the Death Star in Episode IV: A New Hope, He was one of the leaders of the Rogue Squadron against the Empire's AT-AT's in the Battle on Hoth in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. And then in the final Battle of Endor in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, he was promoted to Red Leader and destroyed the second Death Star with Lando Calrissian, who was flying the Millennium Falcon.

The original helmet was made from an APH-6B Vietnam era flight helmet used by the US Navy, circa 1969. This helmet included the dual visor cover. A ridge was also added over the top from front to back. The helmet was then cast in halves to make the master pattern and the X-wing pilot helmets were then vacuum formed from these patterns. Upon assembly, a strip of ABS was added to hide the parting line of the two halves.

The microphone is from a Racal Minilite headset. This is the same headset that Luke and Han wore when fighting the TIE Fighters in their escape from the Death Star.

Wedge was portrayed by 2 different actors in Episode IV: A New Hope. Denis Lawson plays the character filmed in the X-wing cockpit and Colin Higgins portrayed Wedge in the Death Star attack briefing. Denis Lawson is the only actor who portrayed Wedge in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Coincidentally, Lawson is the uncle of Ewan McGregor, who portrayed the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels trilogy.

The eFX X-wing pilot helmet is a faithful recreation of the iconic helmet that Wedge Antilles wore in the exciting battles of the Star Wars saga. Utilizing a digital scan of an original X-wing helmet in the Lucasfilm archive and an actual APH-6B helmet, castings of an original visor and chin cup, eFX’s engineers, model-makers and artists painstakingly constructed the master patterns to produce this prop replica."
