Great pics Scott.

 

Yes as Bezerkus said, thats the same helmet I authenticated for CHristies back in 2005.

 

I only did the video review recently but the photo review was done at the timer and can be found here

I'm surprised none of the owners decided to remove that patch. I know it would have taken thepaitwork off but still.....

 

Again thanks for sharing Scott

 

Cheers

I'd really like to meet they guy that put that Star Wars sticker on the back of that helmet, just to ask what in the world they were thinking at the time.

Well the only reason we got a few pictures, is we saw the exhibit before the museum opened. They have a strict no photos allowed policy in that area. There is a chance we'll be there one more time, before the exhibit moves on.

 

They also had the Bob Anderson stunt Vader suit from ESB which was great. I was expecting a tour suit and nearly passed out when I looked at it.

Glad you like the pics guys!

Truth be told I'm lucky to have them. Here's why. Terrell is right: we weren't supposed to take pics in there. They did let us in before we suited up and before the museum opened, and some of us (myself included) took crappy pics with our cell phones before we had to go. I was prepared to live with those...

but while we we were trooping, my wife and kids showed up and went thru the exhibit. When they came out she found me and told me almost everyone in there was taking pics. So I said--in no uncertain terms--GO BACK IN AND TAKE LOTS OF PICS OF THAT HELMET AND BLASTER!!! So she did. Thanks dear =).

Oh--one last one: Here's our buddy Tom posing for photos in his C-3PO costume...this thing was amazing. We had a fully remote R2D2 as well. Good times.

So who is coming to the Detroit area to see this? It's only $14 to get into the museum, and the exhibit is included. Or you can come and troop at it in January and get in for free.
