Hey guys! Sorry for the copy paste from the RPF. Just wanted to share it over here since I know there some here that dont go there, and some there that dont come here LOL

For a while now I've been wanting to document my Vader helmet collection, and in a way I already have begun to do it. Kind of in the same way I did with the Stormtrooper helmet collection. However, Vader is a tricky subject and a lot of the helmets in the collection come with one o those "dont post higg resolution or detailed images online". So I'm not sure if I'll be able to post as insane images as the ones I posted for the trooper. And PLEASE do not turn this thread in to a complaint fest about why these images cant be posted. I do not make the rules. I merely respect the desire of the owners of the original helmets not to share the full details.

Anyways, here is a good way to start things off. This is the closest I've gotten to get most of the Vader helmets all in one shot. At least all of my favorites are in there and only 5 didnt make it in there ( one of the five not shown is pretty bad ass though. A MasterEdi Melted V2). So one thing to get about this image is that I'm not going for a fancy display. This is my office/ studio where I work on my digital art and props. Nor am I in to buying cool novelty helmets ( for example chromed EFX, Hasbro BS, etc.). The helmets that I add to the collection have some sort of link to many stages of production and all have varying degrees of lineage. And then there is a very special one in the acrylic case that I am sure we will get to discuss some day. Please keep in mind I dont want no drama. I am just slowly sharing what I can.

Hi Juan! It's always nice to see photos from your collection, it's something extraordinary! Is the JCF helmet what you mentioned some time ago on another thread with a photo?

Thanks!

The JCF derives from the helmet I was referring to in that thread you speak of. The actual helmet is the one in the acrylic case.

I still have no Vader in my collection (don't hit me don't hit me!!!!) and thought that 4 would be enough (one for each movie).... what I see let me totally dreamer.
