Since its premiere in 2007, The Vader Project has been exhibited around the world including a trip to Europe in July 2007 and Japan in July 2008. It was on display last year at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now all 100 helmets are on display at Freeman's Auctioneers and Appraisers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania through July 9 for the final opportunity to view the helmets in person before they are sold at auction on July 10. Most bidding will begin at $1,500 some helmets are set to bring in a bit more depending on the artist and the intricacy of the design. The bullet-spiked Vader helmet from Plasticgod is estimated at $10,000-$15,000. You can view the catalog at Freeman's and a 200-plus page, full-color, limited edition catalog featuring 100 helmets, artist bios and some history on the project is available.
