    Mar 16, 2012, 11:28 AM - Kevlar Vader Helm #1

    I picked this up back in 2003 when I was with the 101st Airborne when we went into Iraq for the first time from a pile of Iraqi army gear, all I could think when I saw it was this is Vader's helmet! Now I know its not 100% accurate to the movie, but I know its got to be more than a coincidence lol. I could be willing to part with it if anyone is interested, but I thought Id share my little hidden jewel.

    This is one of the helmets that one of Saddam's sons had requested for the military. My understanding of it is that there aren't a whole heck of a lot of them out there, but it was a military issue to a select group of Iraqi soldiers.

    edit: Here's a little more on it...
