If I showed you the mannequins I used for both of mine you wouldn't think they worked. I just looked for the right hight ad then muscled him up with foam cuttings. I actually went for pretty inexpensive mannequins I only paid $300 for each (shipping included), and the shipping was inflated because they were coming to Puerto Rico which is Bull S because PR is a U.S. territory and everything else I purchase cost the same to ship here as it does to any other state. on the other hand they do ship on huge boxes and are pretty heavy. Still $300 and I got some really good and usable Vader mannequins.

Some pic's without the suit would help maybe to fit the muscle foam right.
I tried it some times in past, but never got the right look, cause the mannequin i have is just a bunch of s**t in it's proportions.

I know this is an old thread. I just gotta day damn!!! I’m blown away by your collection!! Also I wanted to thank you for the AP cod I got from you back when I was based in Vegas. Now ive moved to the Philippines and the cod you sold me is proudly displayed on my mannequin. Waiting for some parts to finish before I sign up for the 501st here in the Philippines

Thank you my friend! Its all about the little details.

After posting the pictures I realized I wasnt happy with the way the helmet was sitting on the mannequin so I added some foam to the top of the head. Also noticed the dust from having worked on cutting the mannequin earlier the day of the pictures, so I wiped the dust and the finger prints off LOL. I posted these images on the RPF but forgot to post them here:

You guys have no idea how much this forum has helped me get to where I am today, not only with this display but with everything Vader related. THNANK YOU to all my good friends here at the Den.
