Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader Helmet Production Used

original movie prop

This is an original production used Darth Vader face plate and helmet from the pre production phase of The Empire Strikes Back, and used to develop the look of Vader and the adjustments required for thw new film, and has tells from both A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.  It carries the ring and mount system for the helmet first utilised in ESB, but the mesh used inside the mouth grills matches exactly to the type used and seen only in A New Hope. The lenses are gel coated amber bronze as used in ESB.  The tusks are the type seen in ESB.  Both the helmet and face plate have remnants of foam padding, but this has long since crumbled and discarded.

Originally part of the private collection at Propmasters in the UK.
