    OfficialPix has one that is cut off at the bottom of the chestbox...nice 8x10 but it's a bit dark...other than that I've not seen a high res uncropped version :(

    It is from the ESB promo shoot. They used the ANH costume. Do you think that it is an ESB styled helmet on the teaser poster?

    Nice avatar btw Sithlord .

    Thanks, Paul. Well we know of four images from that photo session...and in each one it's an ANH tour helmet (not original).

    This was the best version I had from that SW Insider magazine article about ESB movie posters...

    Thomas,

    Are you sure its a tour helmet the reason I ask is the black painted tusk on the helmet isn't there some screen time with the same black tusk?

    Cheers Chris.

    Cheers Chris...

    Ya I had wondered about that too when I was initially examining it, but based on the details (or lack thereof) in the teeth of the mouth and the narrower neck/face, it's not an original ANH. Even if one took into account overzealous repainting, there are still features that preclude it being original...however it is a superb reference for an ANH tour helmet prior to the release of ESB :D
    The chestbox and belt could very well be original...the armor likely not.

    I'm with you on this Kev. I never liked the picture either myself... just personal opinion of course.
