The Return of the Jedi armour is much the same as The Empire Strikes Back, with one small addition. A small hook was installed on the front of the armour to stop Vader's cape from sliding back and choking David Prowse.
The shoulders are exclusively mounted flush to the sides of the armour for ROTJ, and attached with hinges to allow a little movement of the upper arm.
The full bust pictured is for illustration only, the helmet and stand are not included.
NEW - If you are a costumer and want to lighten the load a little (Vader is a heavy costume!) we are now able to offer the armour made with carbon fibre. Externally it is painted exactly the same as the standard armour, but you can expect a 30% weight reduction by opting for carbon fibre instead of fibreglass. The weave of the carbon fibre cloth is visible only on the inside of the armour.
