You mean in the Hasbro game or whatever? I'm almost 100% it was just ROTJ stuff hauled in from the LFL archives. Mask might even be the same one as on cover of the DK book. That mask was in the Smithsonian coverage from 1990 - 91 as well.

Yeah I believe so. The one where JEJ and Prowse worked together again.

Rotj you say? Cool. So if one were able to get a cast from a mould made of this helmet what would its designation be then?

Oh heck, I don't know. How about the HV helmet? That would stand for "Hasbro Video?"

I think it is a ROTJ hero helmet. I think. Others will have to chime in on that though. The dome sits a little off center in some of the shots and the lighting is a little funky from time to time but I think they would have grabbed the best they could find in the archives. I knew the guy who dressed Prowse for this project.

If you do get a casting it might be interesting to see the top of the face piece for evidence of the connector involved. Could tell us/ me something. Maybe not too.

Here is a video of the game footage that someone posted on utube

Well I'll have some pics tomorrow. This is just strong here say arm as to its origin. As far as I know the mould has no connector built in.

HV I like that lol
