Now available to meet all your dark desires are the HJC RPHA 90 Darth Vader and the CS-R3 Stormtrooper helmets. The battle between the rebellion and the Republic is officially on.
No, I am your helmet.
The Darth Vader motif reproduces the famous character's bell-shaped helmet design. Lord Vader's grille—which makes what is possibly the most recognizable breathing sound in the history of cinema—has been transformed into a chin vent. The RPHA 90 is HJC's high-end DOT-rated modular helmet with carbon and carbon-glass elements for optimized weight reduction. The back of the helmet is decorated with the Empire's roundel and red padding on the inside.

No, the CS-R3 isn't 3PO's cousin, but rather HJC's entry-level helmet model. The outer shell is made out of polycarbonate and has a vent on the chin and two on the top of the head. The Imperial Stormtrooper graphic even sports some scuff marks, mimicking the look of a uniform that has already seen many battles. You will be ready to take on your daily commute with this lid—just don't try to shoot anything, you'll most likely miss.
