Did Vader wear a neckbrace in ANH?

Just that, really - did he?

I know its never featured onscreen, but did Prowse wear something black to hide the back of his neck?

That's what I thought might be the case, but I've never really studied the ANH Vader closely until now.

So the only thing back there was the collar of the cape and the straps from the facemask?

right...no neckbrace...check your SW DVDs "Empire of Dreams" when Prowse is fighting Alec Guiness...the helmet comes off revealing a glimpse back there...

Ah yes, I remember those images now - thaks for the info chaps.

So I guess the next question is, we see the brace in ESB and ROTJ (and a brace in ROTS too if I am not mistaken?) so in terms of continuity - Vader should have been wearing a neckbrace, right?

(Just getting my geek on here... .:p )

Yes, good point. Technically, yes he should have one for continuity's sake. :)

:p

I wonder, in the 'non-reveal' scenes in ESB and Jedi, did Prowse (or Bob Anderson etc.) wear any kind of neckbrace? I suspect not as it always looks very visible to me when a neckbrace is worn.
