Just found this in a search and can't remember if we talked about it. Looks pretty cool. They also had a full R2D2, but I didn't screen capture it.

It's pretty beautiful! I wonder if anyone can place it into any scenes. At one point there was an auction somewhere for an ESB claimed to be from the very "No, I am your father" scene etc. But I don't see that claim here.

Is this the head and armor that were at Planet Hollywood at a point?

I am pretty sure the armor and head were together when they got it.

You're right. That does look like the Planet Hollywood Vader. I screen matched it to the RotJ reveal scene, but it is definitely ESB style.

Unsure whether it has been matched to a specific ESB scene, though.

I question how Profiles In History came to the conclusion that this is the exact helmet used when Vader says the line "No, I am your father". I recently caught a YouTube video titled "Darth Vader's original Star Wars helmet to go up for auction" where Brian from PIH displays the helmet and shoulder armor and proclaims that it is 'the helmet' worn during the delivery of the famous line, (aren't they all?) which of course would bolster it's prominence, price and sell ability.
The screen image is so dark, that even when you lighten it up to a great extent, you still can't see any obvious differences from any other helmet made for the film, except that it appears to have a very deep inset chin grille, approx. 5 mm or more, which would be twice as deep as most of the others, including the helmet for sell.
I do agree that it is the helmet from Planet Hollywood and from Return of the Jedi, but as far as Empire Strikes Back, I would say this helmet is most closely a match for the one seen near the end of the movie where Luke and Vader communicate across space. But I won't go so far as to Proclaim that it is.

Profiles apparently has a history of claiming things without any real proof or facts to back it up.
