Wild Animal Stormtrooper Helmets

New York-based artist Blank William has recently reinterpreted the Stormtrooper helmets as armor for three species of wild animals — a rhino, hippopotamus and elephant, so if you’ve ever wondered what kind of headgear a rhino might wear as a solider in the Galactic Empire? Wonder no more, as all have been 3D sculpted with the same aesthetic qualities as the fictional film soldiers, characterized by the same glossy surfaces, but gilded with some cool gold and silver details.

The New Order Collection has been realized in two versions, white and black and all features facial warps and distortions to mirror the classic style of the Stormtroopers distinctive plastoid body armor

I have only one question though, I wonder if the hippopotamus is a better shot? 🙂
