Have seen this Video on the propden FB page.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/0 ... 94764.html

If you take a look at Min. 0:22 and to the last 15 seconds you can see a quick overview,too.

So anybody was there? Is the Episode 3 Vader back on tour?
The last i heard was that the helmet mounting system got badly damaged on Celebration 3 and therefore he kepped in the archive.

What happened at Celebration 3 that caused it to be damaged?

I wasn't there to see it on display, but I saw some photos and it is a ROTS vader.

As fas as i know they stopped touring with him as some guys broke the helmet dome mount while put him on.
Therfore you just see some single parts later on Celebration 4.
There's a well known pic where you can see the helmet seperate with the dome , some chestboxes and some belt's in a big glascase.

What exactly got broken i not know...
I would say if someone know, than maybe Brandon as he was in the archive for his book and may have seen him there.

So you have seen it?
It also looks very slim. Don't think it's the Episode 3 leather suit.
As Hayden had to wear a muscle suit underneath, the suit must be more baggy on the mannequin and not that slim fit.

Yes Ive seen it and will probably go again- the suit looked correct though I didn't spend a lot of time viewing that piece since there are some other OT costumes I hadn't seen before in person.

Well aslo if you get bad sickness by watching this suit, but could you make some pic's?
Speacialy from the side of the chestbox ( The mounting ) and from the shinguards , if possible also from the sides.

If at all possible it would be great to have sharp HR images of inside the dome of the rear section....

Hey guys: so I took a trip today and got a few pics-lighting is poor so to get enough light in made the pics a little grainy, of course flash is not allowed but they couldnt argue with my flashlight with tissue diffuser lol. The costume is partitioned off a few feet all around so getting anything remotely useable under the dome is impossible. If the Smithsonian wasnt involved I would have had access when they were setting up. Maybe next time. :/

Hey very nice pic's!

Was there also a Tie Pilot to see?
I was at the exhibit in Paris last year in May, but there were only the Rebel Pilot.

Anyhow thanks you very much :salut
