Here are the three helmets I have (the good ones) and just posted here to see them all together. From left to right, a cast from Rick Baker mold (DJ), an ESB made out of a Rick Baker cast (as was probably done by LFL at some point), and an idealized Vader that I made from a Rick Baker cast with everything cleaned up the way it should be cleaned up if you're gonna clean it up, dammit! (in my opinion).

Just porn!

Am excited to find out where they got R1 helmet from. Looks very much like an efx helmet, huh...

I surprisingly like the cleaned up Vader - kind of a perfect blend of ESB and ANH. :)

Great collection, DJ!

Against the backdrop of Gino's rant on the RPF I don't think they've used an EFX helmet ;-) But hopefully we'll find out next week.

Thanks for taking a look, guys! It's tragic how slow I am. The first of these was finished in 1995 or so. The last one was finished two weeks ago.

SLoooooOOOOOOWWWWwww. haha

Will look at RPF - have not seen Gino rant!

Nice work DJ. I too like the clean hybrid version; looks production-ready.

Thanks, gang!!! The truly scary stuff was cutting out a larger chin triangle from a smaller triangle. And stuff like that.

I think I like the hybrid too - I wanted to keep all the ANH qualities but spruce it up into smooth lines and sheen...

But am lucky. Lots of time at the work bench which I am grateful for :)

You know.....if the chin vent on the hybrid helmet was the size of the ANH chin vent, you'd have a good Rogue One Vader helmet on your hands. ;)

Is it bad that I can't pick a favorite of the three? Looks like a collection that is best kept together. Beautiful work DJ!!!

Beautiful Vaders there DJ. Gotta say though, that I have a real soft spot for the original DJ helmet. When I first got into the hobby, that was my holy grail.

Cheers!

Thanks again, all around!!

I am eager to find out what was used for Rogue One. Am very curious.

Nothing very interesting although there was a fantastic modesty blaze about how he could have put the Rogue One Vader costume right if he'd been consulted.

These three helmets are lovely.
