Star Wars Darth Vader PCR 1:1 Scale Prop Replica Helmet
Get the most accurate recreation of Darth Vader's helmet from the Star Wars: A New Hope film! This Star Wars: A New Hope Darth Vader Precision Cast Replica Helmet features a master pattern that was cast from the original molds made by Rick Baker of the screen-used helmet in 1977, not a digital scan. With original asymmetric and sculpted geometry, the helmet has been recreated here using high-quality ABS and metal construction pieces, complete with a screen accurate, 2-tone black and gunmetal paint scheme on the facemask, a padded interior, machined aluminum "tusks," and even metal mouth / chin grills. It comes complete with a certificate of authenticity! Ages 13 and up.
Darth Vader - just the mention of his name conjures up fear not only amongst the Rebel Alliance, but within his own Galactic Empire, as well! The Dark Lord of the Sith is considered by many to be the villain of a generation of movie audiences. His sinister persona was conveyed by his iconic helmet, with a facemask and dome, based on the concept sketches by legendary concept artist, Ralph McQuarrie.
It is not known how many helmets were made for production, but based on all of the reference materials in the archives, only one helmet was used in the filming of A New Hope. Unfortunately, there is no record of what happened to the original molds that were made from Brian Muir's sculpture. At the end of filming in England, the complete screen-used costume, including the helmet, was sent to the USA, and make-up artist and creature maker for the film, Rick Baker, cast a new set of molds from this screen used helmet. These molds were then used to make the Darth Vader promotional touring costumes in 1977.
The master patterns for the eFX Darth Vader helmet were cast from these vintage molds at the archives, and thus have a direct lineage to the original, screen-used helmet. It has the asymmetric, hand sculptured geometry and all of the surface nuances that many feel capture the true menacing essence of Darth Vader. The face mask also has the two-toned black and gunmetal paint scheme of the original helmet, thus making this helmet one of the most accurate replicas of this iconic helmet ever created.
