Thanks guys, the only way I can tell it's ROTJ, is the lightsabre perhaps??


very cool statue! I think another rotj giveaway (or, non-ANH) is the fact that the inner cape fabric slides underneath the breastplate and not OVER it..could be wrong tho...

funny ... I actually noticed that the mouth is "bending" to the opposite site
than on the Original ... it looks as if you look at the original Helmet in a
mirror :conf ... maybe the sculptor had a mirrored refference image when
he sculpted the piece ??? ...

That's how all licensed pieces are made. The face is inverted, yet the rest is pretty much how it should be.

I just heard from Al Howard, that he's completely reworked the dome on my VM02 recast helmet, pics up soon. I like the way the sculptor managed to etch in the Aurabesh symbols on the Vader piece. What does it say in this lanuage??

Originally: GIBBERISH. Best way to describe it. It was only meant to look good and alien, not to actually mean anything.

Personally I think the top one says O2 intake, the second one says CO2 outtake, and the third one says liquid intake.
