‘STAR WARS’ ORIGINAL DARTH VADER HELMET EXPECTS TO FETCH $450K AT AUCTION’:

https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/star-wars-original-darth-vader-helmet-expects-to-fetch-450k-at-auction

‘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.’
 

Some other cool looking props from other films in the article as well, including a beat up DeLorean from Back to the Future III

This guy has done a pretty comprehensive video on some of the more negative, maybe even toxic elements, of click bait fandom, especially about The Last Jedi:

I am sure not everyone will agree with it (and I don’t fully), but it is worth posting here for those that wish to see an alternative take, on some of the more unjust or outlandish criticism of modern Star Wars, and also how some within also twist and contort what is, or has, actually being said by people working on Star Wars or at Lucas film, to try and prove or further their view or agenda.

The Chronological Star Wars – A Year-Long Critical Reappraisal

I enjoyed reading the Solo entry, and while I didn’t agree with some of your viewpoints in there, they did get me thinking about it and other alternative points of view and how other fans arrived at them. I look forward to your next piece(they are very well written and laid out) and reading more of your older articles on there as well.

Thanks 😃

Hey mate,

I’m actually the guy who made those VHS covers, if you would like if you give me your email address I can send you my designs and I’ll throw in some other designs too (I’ve also made some other designs since then that could fit in a claim shell case for VII-IX). I also do have a VHS copy of TFA however I got a Retro records and Dvd store guy to make it for me here in Australia.

Cheers Marco

Also my email is bluraymarco@gmail.com

Could you post some examples of your work on here too please, bluraymarco? They are some truly great covers you have come up with.

Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes

I love the addition of other sources in your thread 005 and that this has been pinned so it is easier to find.

You ARE the change guy! 👏

A little off topic… but this on your twitter page (that ooj linked to in his thread) is also superb find of George Lucas in his own words - https://twitter.com/doubleofive/status/1151316503314227205

“So yes, the Special Editions were a means of researching and testing what I was going to try to do on this film. (The Phantom Menace)”
