Yes... it is very impressive.

Just a question... will it be displayed with a plaque or notice saying that only the helmet is screen used and the rest is a replica suit and armor made by you? Will you be credited for your work on making this? I'd imagine you will, but just checking.

Not unless I'm getting confused or misunderstand your post the helmet is not screen used. Maybe I don't understand your post :wink:

Vadermonkey, Looks great and it's a good idea as you don't see many people take on this project.

Well, from what I understand, then he is doing this costume for the owner of the real screen used ESB stunt helmet, so that it can be displayed properly and not just a helmet in a glass box. Or did I miss something?

Yes, the armor, leather and all components will be displayed with real stunt robes and the real fencing mask from ESB as well as a real stunt lightsaber.

I just used my mask and robes as a stand in for these pics to show you how it will look altogether.

As for the display, right now its in a case with a MR ESB saber and its not called a replica....I was wondering that myself, if they would call it a replica suit.

They might do a plaque saying I donated it or something.....they did that on the Death Star that Gus Lopez loaned them. But it would be worth it as an uncredited donation to see the helmet hands on with a possibility of taking pics of it!

That looks simply incredible. Your attention to detail is amazing. Museum quality and infinitely more authentic to what we are normally used to seeing.

When are you starting your new mask/helmet? And what are you changing?

Thanks everyone! Here is the full shot.....

Ok, to the questions...

Cod

I made it myself. In fact its funny, I made this cod for my nephew's senior project video in like 20 minutes.

clip... http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea ... 2011108926

Helmet revisions

Hard to explain without picture reference but it needs to be refined a little overall shapewise and there are to be slight color changes. Nothing major except for the shape thing.

I am going Monday to drop this stuff off and view the real items. I am going to help set it up at least in part so that will be fun.

That looks incredible. Man I love how you captured that battle weary look. We see so many pristine vaders, it's nice to see another variation.
