DARTH VADER STUDIO SCALE HELMET
Replica of Darth Vaders helmet from Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Edition size TBD at a later date. Item Size: 14.25x13x16, Display Size: 7.25x7.25x15.5. Official reproduction of the Darth Vader Helmet from Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith. Cast from the actual molds used to create the original helmet seen in Star Wars. The rear neck panel removes via button snap connectors. Constructed of fiberglass, the helmet features smoke colored lenses, stamped metal grills for the mouth area, leather lined interior with suede-covered foam supports and a fully integrated strapping system. Comes with a custom display, numbered plaque, and certificate of authenticity.
The recreation of this iconic prop started, as always, with the task of obtaining reference. Normally, MR must utilize an extremely accurate "structured light" scanning process to digitally capture the details of a specific prop or vehicle. Unfortunately, very-high-gloss (or chrome) objects do not allow for the scanning process, as the light needs a relatively dull surface in order to completely capture all of the details. Therefore, in order to obtain the highest degree of accuracy possible, Lucasfilm agreed to allow MR to cast their own patterns from the actual molds used to create the original filming helmet! This ensures that the replica helmet is exactly like the helmet seen on-screen in every contour and detail. Each helmet replica is recreated in fiberglass for durability. Several coats of primer and several coats of high-gloss black enamel are applied and polished to replicate the ominous ebony sheen of the original. A specially made display stand and numbered metal plaque finish off this incredible replica.
