We're on the very cusp of the official release date for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and ahead of the launch, we get a glimpse into the making of one the most instantly recognizable components of Star Wars iconography. Andrew Ainsworth is the man behind the mask: he's the creator of the original Star Wars Stormtrooper helmet, developed in his shop in the quaint British town of Twickenham Green. Check out his story in the accompanying video, produced as part of the Artifacts series by the film publication Little White Lies.
