well, the time has FINALLY come to where i can ever so proudly share with you all two of my most prized possessions in my collection. these are my holy grails of holy grails.
here is my SL ANH helemt with my DVV armor. and my TM JRX ESB helemt with my GH master set of armor. as you can see. both of these are most impressive.
i cannot express how incredibly ecstatic i am to have these in my collection. and to have them built and painted so masterfully. it just blows my mind.

and if it wasn't for certain members on this forum. my dream of owning such magnificent authentic pieces of this caliber that have direct linage to the films wouldn't have come to fruition.
so i want to take the time and thank all who helped me in making my dream come true. because if it wasn't for these people. this never would have happened.

JKNO, thank you for directing me in the right direction on where to find SW props of such caliber.

SithLord, DarthVaderV, if it wasn't for you two. none of this ever would have been possible. i cant thank you guys enough. :toothy

NoHumorMan, FatherlessOne, ClanCampbell, Vadermonkey, you guys really made things complete. but a special thanks for NoHumorMan and ClanCampbell for your generosity. :cheers

and last and surely not least dcarty, the man who put these together and masterfully painted them to be as close to film accurate and as authentic as he possibly could get them.
there was a lot of going back and forth and discussion on what should be done. specially on the SL. he definitely went above and beyond and went the extra miles to perfect the looks we were going for. which he accomplished perfectly. i cant thank him enough for all he has done and the time it took to complete these. it was definitely worth the wait. and i couldn't have been more pleased with how these have turned out. and im so glad he agreed to do these for me because he definitely is a master of his craft.
not only did i get a pair of phenomenally well made props. but i learned a ton from dcarty, SithLord, DarthVaderV and NoHumorMan,.
im so overwhelmed and grateful to all you guys.

so here they are. im showing the SL in color and B&W only for that i remember seeing the ANH Vader in some B&W images from the production.
the TM JRX im showing only in color. for i dont recall seeing any B&W production photos.

enjoy and comments are most welcome. :)

Dave, your finishing work is outstanding on this set. Well done! :salut

thanks a lot man.
yeah the SL just blows my mind. specially with the DVV armor.

but i was extremely impressed how well the TM and GH master looked and how that brought me back to the way i felt when i first saw Vader in ESB.

both of these totaly capture the look and feel of what was seen on screen. at least to me it does..lol

thsee two are going to look great with my RSPM stormtrooper and laws Snowtrooper busts.

holy damn! Too awesome!

Makes me SOOOO excited to have my SL back from Dcarty too "all done up good like" (insert hillbilly accent).

Next to my TM ESB it'll be epicness of epic proportions... but I think yours with the armor would be even MORE jaw dropping in person!

Dude dude dude... I want HUGE pics of those... I know we can't but I still want them. ^_^

3D models and 3D prints can never achieve this degree of realism and artistry.

These combinations evoke the presence and distinction of ANH and ESB Vaders with nuance and accuracy.

And exemplify the true essence of the craft.

Amazing pieces!

not trying to derail my own thread. but No Humor Man is correct. just have a look at this 3D printed piece. which was printed in color.
