    I'm still learning the ropes of the Star Wars prop universe, but is this a good deal for a Darth Vader? I'm aware it's missing the eye pieces, but I found those for sale on Ebay as well, just from a different vendor. I don't mind getting some auto shop to put a coat of gloss black on it either.

    I have no plans on wearing it, it would solely be for display on a stand in my office. He's asking 129 which isnt bad.

    Doesn't look too accurate. I'm amazed there isn't a recast of the eFX Vader helmet.

    Looks like a DonPost deluxe recast..or possibly a modded don Post Classic action recast...but do to the droop on the mouth, id bet its a deluxe recast from a higher numbered piece. The droop got worse as they produced more pieces. The low number ones are best.

    Yea the EFX is amazing. Im sure someone will recast it eventually. Hopefully they will at least have the respect of waiting until they no longer have the license, or are defunct..though they seem to be doing well, so i dunno if they will be defunct any time soon.

    my goal was to spend a couple hundred bucks for a nice looking shelf piece, I don't have a problem doing a little bit of work on it, maybe some black gloss paint and a polish, nothing major though. I also had no plans on wearing it.

    i'm not trying to run you off, but the best information you can get about darth vader (or any of the movie sith lords) is at the 501st sith lords detachment, visit them at: 501st Sith Lord Detachment
