Darth Vader Helmet Captures Sith Lord’s ‘Sinister Essence’
Digital sculptor Jay Kushwara “captured the true sinister essence of the Darth Vader that Ralph McQuarrie envisioned in his original sketch,” said Bryan Ono, president of eFX, the company producing the $900 collectible helmet, in a press release Thursday.
Only 250 of the three-piece Ralph McQuarrie Signature Edition Darth Vader Concept Helmets (pictured) will be made. Pre-orders from eFX will begin at 9 a.m. PST Monday, with a non-refundable deposit of $250 required at time of pre-order. The helmets are expected to ship in late May.
