    Hello all,
    Recently there were some screen used costumes on display at a gallery in town and I got some pics of the EP3 Vader. I was one of the lucky few that were allowed by LFL reps to go in for 5 minutes and take flash pics. I was however unfourtunate that I only had a 35mm camera (non digital) piece of crap camera that I still haven't figured out how to use. So my pics aren't the best. But good enuf.

    Here are the link. thought I'dshare. I also had some observations about certain key elements of the costume. I am sorry the pics are so big, but I wanted to share them in the best possible quality I could. So I pushed them to the limit allowed by imageshack.

    Enjoy.

    After seeing those pics the Rubies costume doesn't seem so bad.

    Thanks for sharing them with us :)

    Excellent pix JB...I always thought that the ROTS facemask was too small or the dome was too big.....

    Yup....maybe the Rubies costume wasn't that far off....

    I agree. With the exception of the helmet it looks like a Rubies suit.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Here are some more:


    Here is the Rubies Supreme costume stading WITH the screen used vader:

    I wish we had more pics of the comparing of the two costumes, but when these two pics were taken they said "Hurry up! You can take two quick photos".
    Sorry i don't have more, or better pics.

    You would be SHOCKED to see how much the Rubies Supreme costume and the screen used one are alike. the RS is basicaly just a dumbed down plastic version of the real thing. Of course the soft parts of the soctume are pretty different, the hard parts are pretty close. Like I said, he RS is just more palstic with a crappier paint job. Not to mention that the guy in this costume is the correct size to be vader, and the costume just isn't that big. Hence the gap between the choulders and the bottom of the dome.

    Thanks for such detailed pics. I think the belt boxes differ a lot on the RS compared to the screen-used version (size, greeblies, etc.).

    Does this mean that the rubies is now (A), more accepted as a OKish copy
    And (B) not a complete load of Cr*p?

    The lens look flat like the replica MR is offering, but the lens aren't that flat in some of the scenes in the movie.

    This is the danger of not uploading photos directly to the site... :( You are right... It is definitely a loss.

    Edited the first post and uploaded the photos that were still available to the RPF so at least those are preserved.
