    So I've been wanting to build an ANH Vader for a while and I have the Heiland flash handle, but I need to get the other parts to add. I would prefer to use original parts, but I'm not too picky about using replica parts. plus the Heiland is missing the it's clamp

    Also I have a helmet kit, but it is for ROTS and I would like to convert it to ANH any ideas? I've been thinking about grinding down parts of the helmet and re sculpting them with resin putty to change the shape in some parts and then recasting from the modified version to use

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Steven

    The Vader saber was made using an MPP Microflash, which is crazy rare these days. The Heiland Synchronar makes a good substitute, but you'll have to get other greeblies to make it look just like an MPP. I recommend Roman Props which sells excellent repros of the clamp, shroud and end cap. For the bulb release button Wannawanga makes a great copy, as well as accurate t-tracks for the grips.

    The RotS is a symmetrical helmet so cannot really be used for any of the original trilogy helmets. If you want a good and "cheap" ANH helmet I would recommend the eFX plastic helmet.
