Darth Vader Helmet
Master Replicas proudly reveals the Darth Vader Studio Scale Helmet from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
This special retailer exclusive is signed by the man who was in the mask for Episode III, Hayden Christensen!
The master casts came from the actual helmet molds created for Episode III. This was to guarantee the Darth Vader Studio Scale Helmet would be the ultimate replica.
Constructed from sturdy fiberglass, the helmet features a high gloss black paint finish, smoke colored lenses, machine metal details, a leather lined interior with suede-covered foam padding, and a fully integrated strapping system.
Comes with a custom display stand, metal plaque and certificate of authenticity
This helmet comes in three separate pieces: Dome, Face Plate, and Rear Neck Collar. Each piece carefully fits together to bring your favorite Sith to life.
Anakin Skywalker; Jedi knight and the "Chosen One", foretold to bring balance to the force. Seduced by the dark side, Anakin departed from the path of his Jedi brethren and began his downfall into the stranglehold of evil.
After his climactic battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar, Anakin was horribly scarred and his body was damaged almost beyond repair. Resurrected by a medical team under the direction of Darth Sidious, Anakin's battered body was reconstructed using cybernetic components. Unfortunately, the damage was too severe to restore him fully and the biomechanical amalgamation that was once Anakin Skywalker must be encased in a life-supporting, armored housing. This armor becomes the ultimate visage of evil, Darth Vader.
Darth Vader has become one of the most recognizable characters in cinematic history. Undeniably, the most striking aspect of Darth Vader is his helmet. Therefore, Master Replicas was honored when we were given the opportunity to produce a replica of Darth Vader's helmet from Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
Our recreation of this iconic prop started, as always, with the task of obtaining reference.
Normally, MR must utilize an extremely accurate "structured light" scanning process to digitally capture the details of a specific prop or vehicle. Unfortunately, very-high-gloss (or chrome) objects do not allow for the scanning process, as the light needs a relatively dull surface in order to completely capture all of the details. Therefore, in order to obtain the highest degree of accuracy possible, Lucasfilm agreed to allow us to cast our own patterns from the actual molds used to create the original filming helmet! This ensures that the replica helmet is exactly like the helmet seen on-screen in every contour and detail.
Each helmet replica is recreated in fiberglass for durability. Several coats of primer and several coats of high-gloss black enamel are applied and polished to replicate the ominous ebony sheen of the original. A specially made display stand and numbered metal plaque finish off this incredible replica.
