Clone Commando Helmets

Alright, so today we have the Clone Commando Helmets.
Left to right: Scorch Helmet, Fixer Helmet, Sev Helmet, Boss Helmet, Omega Helmet

Scorch Helmet: Stormtrooper torso / Alien Conquest Legs // Fixer Helmet: Old Phase 2 Clone battle pack clone // Sev Helmet: Shock Trooper torso // Boss Helmet: Bomb Trooper torso and legs //Omega Helmet: Hazel Fantasy Emile armor with Alpha Team legs.

Alright so Arealight was nice enough to send me a copy of each of the commando helmets to review; so I think I’ll go ahead and start off with the Scorch Helmet.

The Scorch helmet itself is alright, but it doesn’t really match the reference work that well. The white ink used to print is a bit transparent so it isn’t a Lego white. Also, the lack of the mouth part on the lower area of the helmet is a bit of a let down for me. In my opinion had Arealight printed the helmet on a Dark bluish grey or light bluish grey helmet and done the black visor print with the white design print it would have been better.

Anyways, moving on to the Fixer helmet. The fixer helmet has a green stripe that goes from the front to the back and a black visor. The design itself is pretty nice and it matches with the Lego green color. It does not match with the sand green in the new battle packs.

I posted a picture since I think I remember seeing a few questions about the match.

Next up is the Sev helmet. I’m actually glad Arealight released this as I remember right when the Fixer, boss, and scorch helmets came out everyone was asking : Where’s Sev? Anyways, Sev is a pretty well designed in my opinion. The red seems to me to be a Lego red and the design does have a bit of a smear, making it look as though the “paint” was smeared across his helmet. The design for the blood smear only goes half way though, which I believe is how it is in the games anyways.

The one issue I do have is that the design sort of looks like it abruptly stops in a straight line. I think it would have been nicer if the thicker lines continued to the back and gradually got thinner. Over all, pretty good still.

Moving on to the Boss Helmet. This is personally my favorite out of the five, for some reason I just like the design. The helmet has a orange stripe with two black stripes running a long side it from front to back. The Orange matches perfectly with Lego’s orange color and works well with the Lego Bomb Trooper body. I think out of all of them, Arealight did the best job of recreating the reference with this helmet.

Alright, so the last Commando helmet in Arealight’s line up is the Omega Commando Helmet. I personally like this design, it’s simple and it matches the reference relatively well while still allowing it to match with a silver that Lego uses quite often. There isn’t to much to say about this since it’s such a simple design, but I think it would go well with Brickforge’s silver clone trooper decal.

A few other notes I should make is that they do not have printing on the back. [I don’t think they really need to with the amount of detail Arealight included in the base helmet though]

Also the “ears” of the helmet do not have printing on them either.

Also they do not have the gradient visor like in the references, but I just see this as them not having their visor lights turned on.

So to sum it all up,

The Commando helmets are a pretty good buy if you like them, I personally recommend the Boss helmet the most; it is the easiest to source parts to make a decent looking figure with. Otherwise, the other helmets are just as good.

Thank you for your time, and I hope this helped you decide on what you’d like to get.


As a side note, there are one or two more reviews left depending on whether I want to do the Neyo helmets and Mandalorian helmets in one review or two. After that there may be a few other things popping up here and there.

Clone Commander Printed Helmets

Alright so I’ve got a bit of extra time today. So I guess you all get a second review.

Next up is the Clone Commander Helmets.

How I made these: (First off: These figures are not made for accuracy sake, it’s more of a way to display combinations and color matches.)
Fives Helmet:  Exoforce Torso, Series 1 minifigure Astronaut Legs and Arealight Jet pack.

Echo Helmet:Arealight’s Female Trooper Torso, Custom Printed Legs from Bricklink, Waist cape and Pauldron from MMCBCapes, Amazing Armory backpack.

Colt: Power Miners Torso, Pauldron from Christo on Ebay, Modified KZ Armor from Hazel Fantasy(Amazing Armory).

Gree: Lego Kingdoms Torso and Legs.

From left to right: Fives Helmet, Echo Helmet, Colt Helmet, Gree Helmet

Alright, so let’s go ahead and start off with the Fives Helmet. The design matches Fives Arc helmet quite well, however since these are printed onto Arealight’s Commander Helmets there is no Phase 1 fin. (As a reminder: Arealight currently does not have Clone wars Arc Trooper helmets in any of his plans yet; I have already asked :P)  The Echo helmet is also just as crisp of a design, but it is a tad less accurate due to the markings on the top of his helmet being one tone rather than two tone in the reference photo I had seen. However both helmets have clean and crisp printing and honestly you really can’t go wrong with it unless it just really bugs you that there’s no Phase 1 Fin.
There is a very very miniscule print error on my Echo and Fives helmets, the printing is shifted goes a bit out of indention. I also think that had Arealight added the hatch marks onto the bottom of the sides of the helmets similar to his previous helmets it would have turned out much better. However these are still great helmets and I love the designs.

Now moving on to the Colt helmet. This helmet is a bit interesting as it doesn’t really match the reference as well as the other helmets. It’s white printed onto a silver helmet like Gree. However, since white is often transparent, the white appears a light gray color. The printing on this helmet really isn’t as good as the other ones as it sort of messes up once it gets to the fin. The design it self would be really nice had it been printed the other way around (Grey on white) or if the printer was able to lay down a better coat of white ink.

As you can see, the design sort of curves and the ink sort of thickens at the edge of the design. It’s a helmet that I feel could have been executed better, but what’s done is done.  Most likely, I’ll be going over the ink with a coat or two of white paint to clean the look up a bit.

Now for the Gree Helmet. The Gree Helmet is quite nice actually; like the Colt helmet, it is printed on silver. The silver color of the plastic matches Lego’s Dark Bluish Grey color, the green is a bit darker due to the color it is printed on but it matches the reference quite well actually. The design is pretty nice and the printing is very crisp, but it isn’t completely without fault unfortunately.
The printing on the back of mine is a bit out of the indention it was made for. However I’m pretty sure this is just a misfire on the printer’s behalf.
Over all, I like these helmets. I would say that if you want to order a few you should. You have a really big selection to choose from, but if you want to order some of the Wave 2 ones; I would suggest either the Echo or Fives Helmet. Both of which have fantastic detailing and design work.

As always, I hope this helped you decide on what to buy and thanks for your time,


Once again, there should be a few more reviews coming a long this week.
