Don Post Deluxe Darth Vader Helmet: This is a close up of the best example made of Vader's helmet from TESB. It is a two-piece unit with a padded interior and clamping straps to hold it on. It is VERY heavy (no wonder they had Dave Prowse wear it!) and sets hard on your face while the weight of the helmet portion pulls back. The eye lenses are set back from the face and boarded by thick black rings. The helmet is the two-tone brackish steel and black with the colors reversed to prevent someone from selling it as authentic. The grill is steel cage wire and the unit is all fiberglass. A beautiful piece it has a brass plaque inside the face piece with number and authenticity.
