    Hi,

    I am looking for pictures of the tour Vader used for promotional work for the Star Wars video release in 1995. I have one photograph which is in Starburst magaine 208 December 1995. The photograph is of Vader with Carrie Fisher at the launch party in the UK. Billy Dee Williams and Dave prowse are also photographed at the party.

    Does anyone have any other photos from this promotion and if so any good helmet shots.

    Thank in advance Chris.

    I think a lot of the Tour Vader pics people have, they have probably been asked not to share.

    That specific one might be hard to get. I believe there are like anywhere between 6 and 8 total Tour Vader costumes.

    Hi,

    I am not wanting anyone to get into any trouble showing pictures from private collections (unless they want to PM me :lol )

    This suit was shown at a publicity party and I am sure Starburst were not the only magazine or newspaper that published photographs of it. At the time it would have been a respectable sized publicity shoot as LFL were trying to promote the release of the Star Wars Trilogy videos.

    I know this may be hard but I really need to see photos of that exact tour helmet to place it in the right place at the right time for some research I am currently doing.

    Cheers Chris.

    Thanks for offering help DarthJRW but it really is pics of that Vader on that day I need.

    frosty I think the secrecy as with any LFL stuff is because somebody may try to copy props and sell them on a real items and scam people.

    Cheers Chris.
