Good news for all Star Wars collectors! A rare Darth Vader mask and helmet worn in one of the early “Star Wars” movies goes up for auction in Los Angeles later this month.
The prop, from the mighty Sith’s The Empire Strikes Back appearance, was worn by the character’s physical actor David Prowse during the film’s most iconic moments — including the scene where Vader reveals to Luke that “No, I am your father.”
Extremelly rare and considered the Holy Grail of science fiction artifacts,” the Darth Vader mask and helmet set expects to bring in somewhere between $250,000 and $450,000, which would bring it up to the rankings of Han Solo’s classic firearm, which sold for $550,000 last June.
Other items which also will caught the attention of auctioneers include a pair of Harry Potter’s signature glasses, two “Titanic” costumes, worn by stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, along with a “Wizard of Oz” Dorothy costume.
