Science fiction films and television shows have had a long history of reuse over the years with sets, props and costumes. These distinctive helmets and armor have been spotted several times.
First seen in 1997 in Starship Troopers, the pieces were used again in Power Rangers: The Lost Galaxy in 1999. Lastly, they were seen in 2002 in an episode of Firefly called The Train Job, where they appeared to have been painted purple. Their reuse is actually even noted in the DVD commentary of Firefly. If you look closely, there are points in the episode where you can still see where some of the pieces of armor are still covered in “Bug Blood” from Starship Troopers.

I didn’t notice that. I think I lost 10 nerd points.
