Hi guys

Back in 1983 there was a toy museum in Copenhagen Denmark. They did a special Star Wars exsebision.
They got some suff direct from 20th century Fox. Along with other stuff they got some Don Post Studio masks .Which were all used in the exsebision . There where more masks but the rest have ben lost to history .
The museum closed over 15 years ago .

This lot is not just special becuse of the history of the masks , being used for a museum exsebision . But also becouse they come dirct from Fox . There is even a very rare Don Post Studio 3 pice shipping box in this lot . It has written by hand that it contains 3 pices of 2009 wich are the order number of Klaatu masks . This has been crosed out and on top of the box is writen that it cantains Admiral Ackbar Klaatu and Gamorrean Guard

I still have the Admiral Ackbar and Klaatu masks. The box also has half of af an air cargo decal on it.

But the coolest thing is the to and from deacal . It is sendt from Fox in the Uk to Fox in Denmark . Under that there is another To and from decal but it is not posibil to make out what it says .
This box and the masks is a forgoten pice of Danish Star Wars history .

Wicket mask

Amiral Acbar mask Has lost the plastic that is the front of his eye . Can easy be glued back on . As it is only the old glue that has dryed up over time.

Dart Vader mask. Is missing some pices of the top pice. Big pice on "his" left . Small pice on his Right and a small pice on the back. I think that if this is retored it could be very nice again.

As im not into masks and don't have the the room to display the shipping box.
Im open to trade offers . I will only trade this for something special and unik as this is a very rare lot.

Im thinking pre-production stuff like Proofs , cromalins , Trasion moc's , Mock ups etc. ,Misscards , Rare forigan moc's and Boxed stuff . Falt boxes. Revange proofs etc.

My thing is ESB stuff , Mostly Hoth , and Bespin Guards . Moc's MIB and MISB vehicles , baggies , ESB Character on SW and ROTJ cards can be intrseted as well. Gradet or not .

PM me if you think you have something that i like.

Wow when you told me these would have a cool back story I couldn't have guessed it was that cool !

Amazing find and really that's just a special one of a kind thing, Danish SW history indeed! Good luck Soren! (Could you post this also in vintage chat for discussion?)

Thanks Joe

Yes this a one of a kind lot . It would be nice to keep it in Denmark , but then again rare stuff like this ned to go to people that apriciate them.
And display them and look at em every day. Not just boxed away like if i keep em Sad

I have made the same post in the prop thread here

But i can make a post in the main part of the forum to. And post pictures of the Storm Tropper helmet from the same lot that im keeping.

Puting prices on the masks and boxes. I have set the price from a mixture of internet prices and that the mask have some historical value. They are not just another DP mask off Ebay .Espacely the shipping box that i think might be the only one that exist today.

Klaatu 100$
wicket 100$
Admiral Ackbar 90$ 10$ off for the eye glas that you have to glue back on
Vader with box 150$ Mask have some pices missing . See pictures

Emty Weequays box 95$

The rare shiping box linking Fox in the UK to For in Denmark and Don Post Studio Maske together .
300 $

Total 835 $ Buy the lot and a pice off Star Wars history for 700$ ( Ok with payment plans )

I ship world wide ( on buys coast )


Im still looking for trade offers on this lot . or the single masks . But trade for the lots goes first hand .


PM me if your got any ?

Thanks Soren
