    This was an April Fools joke / gag ... from '02 I believe. I can't believe it's still up there. Read the "Notes" ..

    FYI - It's a pic of an ESB stunt ...

    I didn't fall for it since I knew that Photo from the Lucasfilm book, I also didn't believe that it was available for real because it would have gone through Ebay or another reliable Auction house, not some little website I had never heard of!

    I posted it so people would get a good laugh out of it!

    I love the notes:


    "Notes: Slave 1 not included in price of helmet. ThinkGeek reserves the right to collect payment from everybody who attempts to purchase this helmet yet also reserves the right to only ship it to the person who lives farthest away from the ThinkGeek offices. You may purchase it multiple times to increase the chances that we may actually send it to you. Arrives in a lead box with a stamp of approval from a Hutt. Batteries sold seperately. "
