‘Profiles in History recently announced its upcoming Icons and Legends of Hollywood auction which will feature the screen-used helmet and mask of none other than Darth Vader. The prop, from the mighty Sith’s The Empire Strikes Back appearance, was worn by the character’s physical actor David Prowse during the film’s most iconic moments — including the scene where Vader reveals to Luke that “No, I am your father.” You’ll have to perform your own James Earl Jones impression.’

‘An original Vader helmet is, according to Profiles in History, “exceedingly rare and considered the Holy Grail of science fiction artifacts,” and expects to bring in somewhere between $250,000 and $450,000, which would bring it up to the rankings of Han Solo’s classic firearm, which sold for $550,000 last June. But c’mon, Return of The Jedi’s blaster versus the helmet Vader wore during the most famous twist in genre? Sounds like this could be a deal waiting to happen for the right rich collector.’
