    Jul 8, 2008, 3:41 AM - ESB Vader bust #1

    In ESB there are two styles of armor worn by Prowse. One has the shoulder bells underneath the chest armor (like in ANH), and the other has them mounted at the edges of the chest armor (like in ROTJ). When mounted at the edges, it makes his silhouette broader at the shoulders.




    Because I wanted the versatility of being able to match any screen shot, promo still, etc.. I had to have both versions for my ESB display.
    Of course, only one set of armor can be displayed on the mannequin at any given time, so I decided to make a bust display for whichever set is not in use.

    There's just something about seeing that glossy armor exposed without the cape hiding it.

    ESB rocks.

    I like this display (although I think the definitive Vader is ANH). This is ultimately how I want to display my own helmet/armour. Right now I have them set on a really ugly base, with no bells attached (no room on my little diaply shelf when you add Boba and RG).

    Not that it's a big deal, but the pic of Vader with the attached bells is a poster shot, not a movie still. It doesn't really matter though, as there are a number of scenes in ESB where you can see the attached bells silhouette. When we see the dark figure of Vader in the carbon freeze chamber when Luke finds him that is a good example. He clearly has the broad look in that shot.
