An amazing look at dressing Vader in ANH --you get a flash look at the inside of the faceplate and the dome (still can't see the attachment mechanism inside unfortunately):

At last – after a long, loooooong wait... :wtf

Awesome footage! Thanks for sharing the url Dave :thumbsup

First thing that caught my attention was that the lenses appear to be (light) grey. Most definitely not amber or red imo.

Awesome. What a significant find. Interesting to see that when the dome goes down it looks like its stuck fast.

Thanks SWC for the stills, can you do some more of the "money shots?"

Begs the question of what other footage might exist? Perhaps one day we will see ESB out takes that show the TM in action as a lighting test?

Awesome!

That's incredible, thanks for that!

Looks like Prowse is getting strangled in that last image!

Well, it's the Falcon hangar set... may be towards the first scenes shot with Vader and at that point it has been stated the lenses may have been grey (the same grey the plain X-Wing helmet visors and the R2-D2 eye was made from) which was then said to later having some amber/brownish see through material glued to the back... if I remember correctly. May be way off.

I know some people have been interested in the ESB reveal helmet.
Would those people be interested in this? :cool:
