Back in the day (well, a few years ago anyway), when I got my five Riddell Mini Helmets, I noticed the customer service review card that was packed with it included six helmets, the sixth being a TIE Fighter Pilot helmet. Awestruck, I looked frantically trying to find this helmet, and I happened across a website picturing one. I emailed the creator of the site asking about the helmet, and if he would be willing to sell it, and he replied that it was indeed a Riddell helmet, but one of only a few made. Was he just jerking my chain? Were any of these ever leaked onto the secondary market? Do any of you have one, or have you seen one in person?

Thanks!

The TIE Pilot helmet never made it to retail. The info you have is correct and he wasn't pulling your chain. For whatever reason (lack of success with the line, I'm guessing), the TIE Pilot helmet never made production.

So, if you have Threepio, Luke XWing, Stormie (the toughest to find), Vader, and Fett, you have a complete set.

They are great collectibles! Great detailing.
