Unlike my ReVision Vader, I stripped away the samurai influence on Vader. To capture that European feel I used title “Lord Vader”, as Tarkin calls him, as the inspiration. My imperials are meant to have that Eastern European/German feel that the film version had somewhat. Vader’s flared out helmet is no longer a samurai look but now a more Prussian spiked helmet. His fierce angular face mask that helped with his breathing is now a modified gas mask. The patina chest armor is a homage to his classic shinny black armor. The clunky lightsaber is connected to a power pack via the tube.
