How to make a wearable odst helmet

Ever since I had the chance at Brickworld Chicago 2011 to wear my good friend Ben’s LEGO Master Chief helmet, I wanted to construct a helmet how to make a wearable odst helmet myself. It was far more difficult to build than I expected, and was nothing like building other 1:1 scale builds. I’ve attempted this project before – first time in late 2011, and second in mid 2015, both failing. Finally, in 2016, I found a frame solution that worked well, and now I can present a wearable LEGO ODST helmet from the Halo series.

ODST Helmet - Halo

In the Halo series, while Spartans have more customizable armor sets, ODSTs and Marines tend to have more personal touches, similar to the Colonial Marines in Aliens. While the personal touches on the current version of my ODST helmet are limited to the UNSC logo on the dome, blue glow on the heads-up display, and my blood type on the rear, I might make some changes to make it more personal. Changing the color of the center stripe, adding skull artwork along the chin guard, or some in-universe writing like “Remember Reach” could work. For now, I’m happy with what I have built.

The first helmet frame I created in 2011 used joints found in Exo-Force sets such as this. The parts used were thick, hard to hide, and didn’t work when it came to the dome on top. Clicking hinges like this were the idea I tried out in 2015, and while it worked for the general shape of the dome, filling in the gaps with hinges this imprecise was too difficult. What worked were ball-and-socket joints introduced in the Mixels line, like this. These joints have high friction and high precision, allowing for the exact angles I needed to fill gaps to be possible.

A video seems to be the best way to present this project. Watch a 360º view of the helmet and see how easily the helmet slides onto my head in this short YouTube video.
