Mine hands down is actually not a Horror piece
, but my Darth Vader Helmet. I purchased this directly from Don Post back in the early 90's, had to between late 1992-1994. This guy is from the very first run before they hit the sales floor and before they corrected the paint scheme, tusks and a few other small things, also before they sold the rights to suck ass Rubies. This Vader is a very low #160, fiberglass all original from the Empire Strikes Back Mold. Ever nce I saw the movie in the theater as a kid in 1980 all that I wanted and all that I could think about was that helmet
. When I heard these were coming out and $1,200 I didn't care, it would be mine. I called Don Post weekly to check the status of the mask. It was different back then. You could call the studio direclty and talk to the artists in the actual studio as they were working. Phone numbers weren't impoble to get back then. They finaly got so ck of me calling, one of the artists said and I quote, "I'm boxing up an early prototype for you as we speak. Actually the prick George Lucas himself did not approve of this mask after he inspected it, so we're going back to the fucking drawing board". God it was so different back then, he sold it to me anyway. I paid for it over the phoneVader and I have been through breakups, marriage, divorce, moves...you name it. Last time we had an earthquake the very first thing I did was grab the Helmet. I LOVE this helmet and will absolutley NEVER EVER part with it.
