I have postet this in the Prop thread , but one of the cool fellas here sugestet that i did a post about it here on the main board.
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 and shipping boxes , 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 .
Storm Tropper mask. It has been sugestet to me that it might be an pre-production mask . Giving the story of where it came from. I think that it might be possible. As it is off line when you look at it from the front . And the markings is not the same as the others i have seen pictures off . The Decals also look difrent.But if you have any info or a helmet with the same markings pleace let me know.
The rubber brow is broken
The marking on the back
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.
Pictures of the the display boxes. Both has the name of the carator that is the same as the the name on the star on the box.
( The hand wrighting is tha same as on top of the shiping box ) Both boxes are in very nice shape C 8,5-9
The very rare shiping box
The box open with the two boxes in it.
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.
Pleace note that the Stormtropper helmet is not up for trade.
