Okay, its been officially confirmed, the very first DV on tour was the original costume. SO all of you guys who met Vader at a TRU probably had the chance to see and touch the real deal.
Great article .

Awe c'mon, can't I just post the pics minus the hyperspace logo ? :lol

Seriously tho, I had never seen him without the mask before. He looked
like a "Baby Huey" type back then :lol By that I only mean ... a huge guy,
with a serious "Baby" face ... ya know, the innocence? But probably dangerous
if ya ticked him off :lol

Dammit... I paid for that damn hyperspace for months and didn't use it. Now that there's something I actually want to read my account is expired. Can anyone help?

It's an awesome interview with several new photos from the photo shoot taken outside Don Post Studios.
If anyone knows how to get hold of some larger versions of the photos featured in the article, I'd be very grateful to hear from you.

Kermit Eller must know more about the screen used ANH Vader suit than any other person involved in the production of ANH. Very cool.

Unbelievable article and photos although most of the photos I've seen before....

It does beg the question...were "tour suits" only used for promotional purposes? It seems there was a whirlwind tour with Kermit with the release of SW....that was probably Kermit at the airport with that rock group I suppose as well...

The TRU images taken of Kermit that we've seen before...if that's him...show unpainted armor...strange...

But you can see in the color images the armor's painted but in B&W it doesn't look painted...strange as well if lighting can do that much?


Great to see this come out....I wonder what prompted it...

I don't think that's Kermit in those Toys R Us appearance photos. That person is a lot shorter (you can tell because the belt, chestbox and chest armor are overlapping very badly).
It's not the real leather suit in that TRU pic either. Weird. Maybe this is one of the other suits that was mentioned in the article?

Is there any way we can get hold of Kermit? I'd like to know for sure what colour the lenses were in the helmet .

If you see at the pic, of Kermit in the suit, the one where He points, in color. You can CLEARLY see that they are dark Gray/smoked. no doubt about it. When wee see the "redish" tinted lenses, in the movie, is it due to the skin around the eyes, reflecting the stagelighting.

Or created in post production. :)

You know, that was always my thoughts on that. I think the fact that Dave was sweating buckets :cry had a lot to do with the colour of his face behind the mask.
