Surplus Astronaut Space Helmet

You have to have a space helmet to complete the suit.

Screen Thrills Illustrated #2 (September 1962).

  1. Both of these are from the Captain Company. Wasn't that Jim "Creepy" Warren's outfit?

  2. That model looks like Clancy Brown. A whole lot.

  3. You know, those exact same helmets popped up in the low-budget sci-film "12 to the Moon", that was one of the funnier MST3K episodes.

    Here's the poster:

    From what I remember the helmets didn't have glass faceplates, and they handwaved this in the film by saying that they had a special force field. (Crow replies with "and now I'm activating my wings and I'll fly!").
