A well-made replica, this is not. Worn on screen by David Prowse in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, this authentic Darth Vader helmet is among the holy grails of film memorabilia. The prop is made from fiberglass, with a mask painted dark metallic gray with black accents. The interior of the mask is marked "1", indicating it needed to be put on prior to the jet black helmet. While the PVC fitting that connected the two is gone, the screw holes for it remain, as do the remnants of the Velcro that served as a back-up connection. The turned aluminum "atmospheric sensors" at either side of the vent and the mesh behind it are also missing, and the helmet has minor chips and dents from use, but it remains an extremely rare and desirable artifact, and will be joined at auction by a full-size screen-used model of R2-D2.
