    Hi every one
    , I have a lot of time searching the internet and here there are many people who might have an answer to my search.

    There is an image of Sebastian Shaw Jedi costume but without effect of spirit ??

    6a17dc39def8c2b20d28b9dbe424b778.jpg

    In any occasion send an email to Starwars.com and ask in person including Steve Sansweet and still not able to find the image and recently saw on the internet a lifecast Sebastian Shaw and looks excellent, but no jedi image.:cry

    anyone know the story behind this?
    I would appreciate it a lot

    really, nobody have one history of the Jedi costume that Mr. Shaw use in the ROTJ.
    I think he used one robe of Obi-wan

    If I remember correctly he just wore the Alec Guinness costume.

    Hayden didn't wear any costume, they just stuck his head on Sebastian's body.

    It does seem strange that there a a good few images of Shaw in the Vader costume, but none in his Jedi robe. I can't help, but I hope your quest is successful!

    These images are from the book "The Making of Return of the Jedi" and are the rarest and seen, sorry for the quality taken with my cell

    Above is the only bigger picture I could find ... though you'd asked about Shaw in Jedi Robes ... I haven't seen any pictures of it, yet :wacko

    must exist a picture somewhere, in fact I once saw in the street a man who looked a lot like Sebastian Shaw, I was about to stop my car to ask him if I could take a picture with a Jedi outfit :lol

    Is there such a picture in the extensive book 'Dressing a Galaxy' or 'STAR WARS Costumes OT' perhaps? I don't own any of those books so I can't confirm ... perhaps someone that does could check it for you, ABE?

    I have "Star wars Costumes OT" and not come nothing, and "the Dressing a Galaxy" I thinks is for the Ep 1 to 3. :cry
    I also had the book "the story of Darth Vader" and "Star Wars Chronicles OT" and found nothing, I had hope that in the "Chronicles" find something but it was not so.

    According to the amazon advertisement 'Dressing a Galaxy' should contain wardrobe of all 6 STAR WARS movies however all the google pics I could find were only of Ep I - III indeed ... :wacko

    I just found a picture of Sebastian Shaw as ghost from the movie but reversed :

    [​IMG]

    and a picture of Alec and Yoda being filmed :

    [​IMG]

    So it appears Shaw was filmed seperately and thus could have
    been wearing parts of OB1's outfit just been retrofitted a bit :)

    reading his biography I saw he had a daughter (Dursilla Shaw), it could be that their descendants have something :)

    - - - Updated - - -

    this pic is as close as I could be of the desired image is part of the images of Star Wars Fact Files.

    Yeah I've been googling Sebastian Shaw to see if something interesting would pop up ... sofar no clear pictures of him in Jedi outfit as if it hadn't been documented :wacko

    [​IMG]

    A blurry picture as was seen in the original feature film. Notice how those belt buckles are quite the same? :)

    Even the action figure was not accompanied by a real photograph of Shaw in his Jedi Outfit :wacko

    Quote from another forum a long time ago yet still interesting : 'Assuming that Yoda and Obi Wan are dressed in the same clothes they had on when they died, then logically, shouldn't Vader appear the same?'

    Now the complete picture without the blurring and to much added glow ... both outfits seem of the same colour ... so my guess would be it's one and the same and filmed seperately :

    I was thinking that maybe did not take pictures because it was something secret and tried to anyone knowing of the original face of Anakin.
    By the way, the daughter of Sebastian Shaw passed away in 2007 and do not mention if have family

    I just checked this lovely paperback :

    [​IMG]

    and it seems the scene with Vader's face revealed was filmed quite early on in production in the UK and it seems logical to film Shaw then too as Jedi ... it's quite a fun read about the many issues involved in filmmaking ... alas still no pictures of Shaw in his jedi robes though ... but they must have been made ... I'm quite certain :wacko

    I feel like an investigator, reading wikipedia again mention that the scene of the spirit of Anakin, was filmed by George Lukas in person, and everything kept secret or hidden.
    The information was taken from the magazine Starlog
