It's a shame the owner removed the tape from each pieces which were annotated with specific film titles....as well as adding velcro and so on.

It should have been left untouched inmo.:unsure

And right forearm,left bicep and right shin.
Right shin is not ANH.

Could you explain what you mean?

I don't understand which 'tape' or 'velcro' you are talking about :confused

No probs.

As far as I know yes, but Jez /starwarshelmets must have a ton of other pics I assume.

Here is a super blury one of the owner and is friend trying the suits in 1993.

Well from what I can make out in the blurry pic is that it features the ANH cover strip hiding the join unlike the left shin with ROTJ style one side overlapping the other.

Great pics. Thanks for showing these. I am hoping we get to see a bit more of these items and hear more of the back story.

I would love to see more of the helmet pictured as well.

Cheers Chris
