Many of you remember our incredible Legend and Limited Edition Darth Vader helmets. The Legend Edition sold out in less than 4 minutes, in fact we actually crashed the credit card processing company's server! The Limited Edition sold out the same day! Now, here is your opportunity to get the latest addition to our Precision Cast Replica line of iconic helmets!

This is a recreation of our Limited Edition Darth Vader helmet as seen in Star Wars: A New Hope.

Darth Vader - Just the mention of the name cojures up fear not only amonglst the Rebel Alliance, but within hi 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 the 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 the 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 the screen-used helmet. These molds were then used to make the Darth Vader promotional touring costumes in 1977.

The master patterns for 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-sculpted geometry and all of the surface nuances that many feel capture the true menacing essence of Darth Vader. The facemask 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!
