Through four tour stops (LA, London, Tokyo and the Warhol Museum), The Vader Project has thrilled Star Wars fans, collectors and art enthusiasts with a staggering display of 100 artist customized Darth Vader replica 1:1 helmets. Now with news of the Vader Project auction at Freeman’s (7.10), collectors will now have the opportunity to bid on the amazing one of a kind helmets. Bidding on the majority of the helmets will start at $1500 which is quite reasonable considering the regular stock helmets retail for $900.
To celebrate both the completed tour and the auction, the Vader Project has prepared a full-color catalog (shown above) featuring all one hundred helmets (2 page spreads for each, 200 pages total). It’s available for pre-order now for $40. Hit the jump for a preview at a few of the interior pages.
Finally if you live in or around LA, don’t miss the Auction Preview presented by Freemans opening on June 11th (6- 10 PM) through the 20th, with a special catalog signing on Saturday the 12th @ 2 PM. Full details on thevaderproject.com.
