This 1967 Remco “Star Trek” Asto-Helmet Is Certainly…Interesting.

Now I may have missed the classic Star Trek episode where the crew of the Enterprise met an Alien sporting this helmet, but I would have though that seeing an ambassador or villain in the series sporting a bright yellow helm with bug-eyes would have stuck with me. Even Mr. Spock seems to be a little confused by it in that photo on the box!

Not that this would stop me from wearing the Star Trek Astro-Helmet to work every single day if I owned it, assuming I could fit my fat head into it. I really like the Command Insignia on the side of the helmet with flames shooting out of it! A huge thanks to the Vintage Toy Archive as always for the wonderful scan of the original box.
