1:1 A New Hope Darth Vader Helmet by Dan Grumertez for the Kuhn Global / Modeler Magic Collection

I recently came home from a visit to artist Dan Grumeretz shop where I was picking up some goodies. One of  which is this 1:1 replica of the Darth Vader Helmet as seen in 1977’s Star Wars… in the beginning of the film. Slightly dulled from the carbon residue in the air, and it even has the damage on the right cheek of the mask! Dan did a fantastic job recreating what I remember seeing for the first time back in 1977. Even the brush marks, and multi-toned paint! Of note.. this is not the eFX Helmet (which we already know is of great quality), but a ONE-OFF painted for this collection. It will show nicely. Thank you Dan!
