Vaako - for when being just a Necromonger "is not enough!!"

An amazing set of armour worn by Karl Urban as Vaako in The Chronicles of Riddick.
Vaako can be seen wearing this superb costume from the scene where he is made a General for reporting the death of Riddick until the end of the film.

I told myself I wasn't going to drop any more big bucks on Riddick costumes (a quick browse of my site will show how out of hand it got!) but I saw this in person and just had to have it. The Necromongers are wonderfully designed and I don't think any of them can top the design and style of Lord Vaako's armour.





The description on my site:
As well as the fantastic gold-finish Necromonger armour plates, this costume also features a very impressive ceremonial open-face helmet that is seen presented to him by the Lord Marshall upon his promotion, ornate 'General' shoulders featured only on Vaako's costume, detailed 'scaled' undersuit and the most impressive one of a kind hand-beaten metal gauntlets with snake motifs because of the cost of production only one pair of these gauntlets were commissioned so of course screen-match to the scenes they appear in.
All parts are labeled either 'Vaako' or 'Karl Urban'.





I've also picked up the axe/pole-arm weapon Vaako uses to attempt his attack on the Lord Marshall and will have pictures of that up on my site soon too!

Great piece! I love seeing all the detail that goes into costumes that might not even be seen on screen. Ive got a pressure vest from 'Sunshine' which has a tiny fictional makers label on the back.

Very nice piece, wasn't the best movie on earth but I did love the armor designs of the necros. Hoping that the next Riddick movie is more like Pitch Black.

Good eye Zorg! It certainly appears to be the same, I'll have to go back and check that out, I'll have a word with the guy this came from and see what he knows about it. Even if it's not this specific one it's very cool to see that this style made another appearance.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone - this has been a real bonus for me, it came out of nowhere - I wasn't looking for it and wasn't expecting to be this impressed with it!
Anyway - here's some more pictures to show off some of the beautiful details!

I had some time to assemble it on a mannequin, so here's how it's looking today:


Full metal gauntlets. Apparently they had to wait months for these (and the pair for the Lord Marshall) to be delivered:


The Pole-arm/Axe:


Fully lined and padded fiberglass helmet:



Fiberglass shoulder armor:

That movie really was very beautiful to watch. The costume and set design were great. But honestly, I was suprised to see the third movie was being made. Good news for us.

The armor is amazing, but the helmet is exceptional. Its such a shame that you never get to see such fantastic details in the film.

Understandable! This ornate version of the Necro armor is spectacular.
