I didn't find any other threads on these pieces so here it is.

Original Return of the Jedi Darth Vader touring suit just sold at Profiles in History for $120,000 plus commission. I guess there is a lot more interest even on the touring suits than some members here have said in the past. If I had the money, I would have bought it. Thoughts?

Gone but not forgotten.
Well, this one comment from the description can explain why it went for what it did.

"One could never expect to acquire a complete screen-used Darth Vader, so this is a rare opportunity for a collector to a obtain a precise, production-authorized touring costume."

Would be nice to have!

It's a true statement. I defiantly would pay the money for it. Of course if I had that kind of disposable income........:unsure

Nice links, thanks for sharing! :thumbsup

That's a really nice Vader costume. Here it is, from the PIH website, for the benefit of those people who don't bother clicking the link :



Whoah... it shure is purrddyy! :love

Sadly not a screenused Darth Vader costume, but unless you have a wardrobe full of checked shirts, last purchased a razor in 1975 and your initials are G.L., it's unlikely you'll ever be able to factor a screenused Darth Vader costume into the 'feng-shui' in your Study /Den!

Let's hope that someone here has bought it, with the intention of moulding and replicating every last square inch of the costume, in order to make über-accurate Replica Vader components available for the rest of us. :D

Oh well, you never know, eh? Stranger things have happened.... ;)

Cheers,

Anyone know if there a list somewhere of the dates and locations of the tour that would have been associated with ESB?
