Hello everyone,

I'm new to this community and this is my first post. I was directed here in my search to find more information about my Darth Vader helmet. Any information any of you may have is greatly appreciated.

The helmet was made by Rubie's Costume Company. 2005 Lucasfilm Ltd. It is signed by Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, John Williams, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, David Prowse, Mark Hamill and George Lucas. It is #40 of 50.

I have included some pictures, but please let me know if any other pictures would be helpful.

Thank you!

Sorry to say but the signatures don’t appear to be from the actors. You can see they all seem to be from the same hand.
If it’s a recent purchase I would recommend getting your money back.

You can send pics to Beckett for a quick review or Facebook group star wars autograph universe has a review service.

What makes you say that they're all from the same hand? Of those autographs that I also have they seem to look legit. I also searched the hologram number on the certificate and it is indeed certified as authentic by FDA Examination.

Now, never heard of the company and signatures can be forged but I don't see anything that would make me suspect that in the pics.

I’ve never heard of the company either, which is a red flag in itself and anyone can make a COA.

All I can say is, I’ve been collecting SW autographs for 22 years and have to say, all the sigs look off. Sure, it can be tricky to sign on an uneven surface but I’ve never seen Mark’s M look like that, along with aspects of all the other names.

Being 1 of 50 would suggest this was an organised sit down signing so again, these are all too sloppy for a sit down signing and I’ve never heard of Lucas or Williams doing an organised signing.

I understand no one wants to hear stuff is fake, especially from some random bloke on a forum but there are too many alarm bells around this.
Can I ask what you paid? If they were all genuine this would be a 3/4/5k piece

The two links above are good for official authentication both specialising in StarvWars and could help in getting a refund.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. I was hoping someone would say that they knew of the 50 edition being made. I'll keep researching. Thanks again!!!
