Awesome stuff! Which version do you like the best?
Thanks steeler.
Some days I like the ESB the best, and some days I like the ROTJ the best.
I would hate to have to choose.

So which version do you like the best and why?

I actually think I like ANH a little better in regards to the helmet. The way the helmet goes over the eyes in the first version makes it seem a bit more sinister to me. Otherwise, I like the ESB outfit.

Truly outstanding work.

Wonderful! I hope you like ANH Vader too on some days! As things come together for me (and I should decide soon), it looks like I'll be putting together a ANH Vader costume starting next month!

Great pictures too btw!

Mind if I also ask which of the three was the easier build? Not in terms of cost per say - but really easy access to accurate materials, specifically armor.

While viewing the 8th wonder of the world, i honestly i cannot choose my favorite.
I have literally been sittin here for about an hour scrolling up and down, up and down trying choose. So i've decided not to choose. I like each masterful recreation for different reasons. Gino i've said before and i'll say it again well done brother.... well done.

Thanks Goldenrod, Clay, and darthmac!!!

@darthmac - The chest box lights on the original ANH were not painted. They were injection molded in colored green and red translucent resins. The chest box lights on my display are the same found partsused on the original.
