Cool and thanks for the pictures. There are some nice things in that line-up. Would particular like to get my hands on a HD 3D scan of that Stargate pyramid model.

These shots were linked in this thread a while back, but the link has stopped working. So I'm sharing them again in case anyone wants to save them.

The armor looks to narrow to be Prowse's armor. Looks like a stunt set.

It's likely paired with the armor seen in the RotJ reveal scene, as the helmet was seen in that scene.

Does anyone have any more thoughts or analysis on the shoulder armour? Is it ESB stunt, or Jedi? Or neither?! I know a fair bit about the film helmets but not a lot about the shoulders.

Thanks!

I could be completely mistaken, but I think they may have reused the stunt armor from ESB in RotJ - maybe even the complete Bob Anderson costume, as it seems to me to be the same as Sebastian Shaw wears during the reveal scene.

Interesting theory on the reuse.

Were different shoulders definitely made for Bob Anderson? The Bob helmets were the same size as Prowses, but with a lot more padding on the interior.

The armor is definitely a re used ESB stunt. Most likely because it would Sebastian much better than the full size Prowse armor.

The helmet is not a stunt. However it is definitely from ESB, judging by the widows peek indentation. I'm pretty sure through out the bridge scene in ESB you can spot the combination of stunt armor with the hero/action helmet.
