Got some extra millions lying around? Good, because there isn’t anything else you should be spending it on except this Gold Darth Vader helmet which is going for a cool $1.4 Million – a steal right?
According to Dengeki Hobby, the one-of-a-kind 24-karat Vader helmet weighs 33 pounds and goes on sale at Ginza Tanaka in Tokyo on May 4. It only costs 154 million yen (US$1.4 million).
I don’t know what’s more terrifying, the site of the gold helmet just out in the open at what looks like some convention, or the actual price. Either way, check out that glossy finish, it’s almost shiny enough to see the reflection of your money-illiterate self if you were to drop that amount of cash on a frikken gold helmet – but hey, don’t let me stand in the way of your fun.
The original size mask which was reproduced using the dozen Vader’s symbol, indeed pure gold 15 kg. It expresses the three-dimensional feeling of a mask by combining a glossy mirror finish and a matte texture finish . It will be released on May 4th, the day of Star Wars on May ‘s Force be with you’ that appears in the play “May the 4th”. The price is also the highest amount of goods in related products of “Star Wars” which is a number of 154,000,000 yen (154 million yen) after “May the 4th”.
In other Star Wars news, the latest Battlefront game will feature a linear campaign unlike Battlefield One:
Players will follow Iden Verios, a unit leader of the Empire’s Special Forces, over the course of thirty years. However, throughout that time, players will visit other iconic characters to play sections of gameplay with on both the Empire and Rebel Alliance side.
“Without getting into too much detail that I will get in trouble for… We take all of our cues from how to tell a Star Wars story working with Lucasfilm story group, analysing the movies, breaking down the beats and flow of Star Wars storytelling. So yeah, it is a continuous story with a beginning, middle and end and you follow Iden’s journey for 30 years from the end of Jedi up to the Force Awakens at Starkiller base.
It isn’t a discrete set of missions or separate War Stories like Battlefield 1, you do follow Iden through this journey whilst from time to time, switching sides and playing from the perspective of one of the iconic heroes because again that’s just part of Battlefront’s DNA. Sometimes you’re a Trooper, sometimes you’re a pilot and sometimes you’re Luke Skywalker with a lightsaber.”
