A $1.4-Million Solid Gold Darth Vader Helmet

This is the one-of-a-kind 24k gold Darth Vader helmet crafted and being sold by Japanese jeweler Tanaka Kikinzoku to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise. It weighs 33 pounds and appears to be life-size or near life-size -- I'm having a hard time comparing it to the woman's head for reference. I mean, why wouldn't they make it life-size, right? *Googles for other references* Okay, other people are saying it is, in fact, life size. MYSTERY SOLVED. Still, I can't think about Darth Vader's mask without thinking of when Luke helps him remove it at the end of Return Of The Jedi and his head looks like a hardboiled egg somebody peeled in a hurry.

Keep going for one more shot, a picture of Vader's egg head for reference, and a short video which also showcases some solid gold Star Wars coins selling for a scant $1,200 - $11,000.

Thanks to vishal, who agrees the rebels should purchase the mask, then melt it to build droids to help fight for the cause. Or destroy it in Mount Doom.
