The set was created for public appearances in 1979 and could reach $ 2 million in the auction.
A man who made several public appearances as the character of the Star Wars saga Darth Vader in movie premieres and fan conventions will sell the fact created in 1979 by the Star Wars design team in a classic movie memorabilia auction to have a place next May.
According to the auctioneer Bonhams, quoted by Reuters, the set includes the masking characteristic of the villain, boots, a pair of covers and a shell and can be sold for between $ 1 and $ 2 million.
The seller is Bryce Eller, whose coarse voice helped secure jobs to appear as Darth Vader at premieres, autograph sessions, conventions, and the 1978 Academy Awards.
The set was a half-dozen made by the designer of ‘Star Wars’ wardrobe, John Mollo in 1979, for the film ‘The Empire Strikes Back’. It is unknown if any of the pieces were used on the big screen before they were given to Bryce.
The pieces are made of fur, wool, silk, fiberglass, and other materials.
“It’s very, very hot,” the salesman confessed. “It has several layers. It takes about 25 minutes to wear and you need help,” he said.
The set is put up for auction on May 14.
