Darth Vader ANH LE Helmet

Here’s a collectible no Star Wars fan will want to miss.

It’s an officially licensed eFX Collectibles prop replica of Darth Vader’s helmet as seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

This is a limited edition item of only 1,000 pieces worldwide.

Best of all, this is a wearable Darth Vader helmet. It has a fully lined face mask with adjustable straps and accurate lenses.

If you’re not wearing it, the helmet comes with a full-size eFX display base and numbered metal plaque.

Constructed in fiberglass, aluminum, and plastic. 

Features machined aluminum tusks and a metal chin and mouth grills.

The master pattern for this Darth Vader Helmet Prop Replica was cast from vintage molds in the Lucasfilm archives, which are believed to have been made by none other than Rick Baker from the screen-used Vader helmet back in 1977.

What makes this a very special product is that the master pattern is NOT made from a digital scan; it is an actual original casting. This means that this replica helmet has direct lineage to the original and is as true to the actual filming prop as you can possibly get!

This helmet may arguably be the most important piece of any Star Wars collection.

The original Darth Vader helmet, as seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, was sculpted by Brian Muir based on the concept sketches by illustrator Ralph McQuarrie. Even though there were three known castings made from the mold made from Muir’s sculpt, only one helmet was used in the entire filming of A New Hope.
