A very rare and original Darth Vader costume, created for the epic Star Wars movie franchise, is going up on the auction block next month. The costume includes the iconic helmet, mask, and shoulder armor that helped make the character one of the most infamous and recognizable in movie history. It’s thought to have been created for the second Star Wars film, “The Empire Strikes Back,” in 1980 and is expected to sell for as much as $365,000. The current owner, a private American collector, obtained the costume back in 2003 and it will soon change hands again.

The costume will lead off Christie’s pop culture auction in London on November 25th and represents the first complete costume to ever be offered at auction.
