Well I've started on this:

Let me know what you think! I'm pretty busy these days again, so I won't be able to put a lot more time into these right now. But I'm sure eventually I will get through them all!

Cheers,

MJC.

Hey all,

Well I've started this new thread to show my work so far on the Vader belt diagrams that people were requesting. So far I've done some work on the ANH and ESB versions. Let me know what you think.

There were a set of grey shoulder bells in ESB as shown under C.D.'s promo tours pic.....I'll post a pic when I get a chance but watch the duel under the line "And I will complete your training"

Hey,

Well here is a screen capture from that scene:
Image

I think that what we are seeing on the shoulder bell is a bit of a reflection on the black paint, making it look more grey. You can definitely tell that it is a different (e.g. darker) grey colour, which I believe is because it is in fact black. Also, if you check the rest of that scene, the shoulder bells appear to be black.

Good eye though!

Cheers,

MJC.

I agree Cantina Dude. It's the reflection.

There are a number of shoulder bells that feature silver/gunmetal though.

The ESB movie version had black bells but some authentic ESB costume shots show these gunmetal bells, (see pic below), additionally there are further pictures that show these? Bit confusing really, that's why some prop makers have their armor featuring this incorrect color. It's fooled me many times. I am unsure of the story behind this.

GUNMETAL/SILVER

Could a leftover from the ANH suit - meaning that they painted it like the ANH, yet, it was decided to go all black when the time of filming began. There are a few of these ANH leftover stuff in the ESB promo stuff and even in the film - at one point, in the Hoth Attack, Vader has what appears to be a helmet with an ANH style chin vent... though perhaps a little larger, but definitely not as large as seen in the rest of the movie... so, were these Hoth scenes some of the first to be shot?

All good questions. And cut throught the fight scene was the fencing helmet etc. I too have the shots w/grey bells, confusing is right....
I have just decided to go with a peticular sequence for each of my Vaders. On the other hand I'll be making the variations, just to have. (nerd alert)

Perhaps you're right about the reflection, it crossed my mind but here is the shot anyway. Forgive the crappyness of it. (great screencap BTW CD)

Image

In fact as long as were on this scene, there are a couple of things going on here most people arent aware of that I would like to get all of your thoughts on.........to be continued......just heard the kiddo knock something over. I dont know what it is but it sounded expensive.

yeah. I resized them too small, the microscope should pick the bells difference in color up :hehe-err .

Vadermonkey they do look the same color in that pic I must admit, that's the annoying screen cap that had me fooled last year. Additionally there are other screen caps showing both black and what appears to be gunmetal?
I think the best thing to support that the bells were all black is to look at the scenes where Vader is in his med chamber as his cape is obviously not on. There is definately many more screen caps etc.. to go with the majority vote of black opposed to gunmetal.

To confirm, stunt suit features black bells, must be lighting etc, giving that ilusion of gunmetal...
