I could never figure out what the big deal with Star Trek really is. But millions adore the sci-fi series, and two of these, Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE toys, set up the Vader Project. The project that started in 2005 encouraged underground artists to come up with their version of Darth Vader helmets. 100 such renditions are now all set to go under the hammer.
Some of the notable artists involved in the project include Shag, Peter Kuper, Jermaine Rogers, Gary Baseman, BXH, Tim Biskup, The Pizz, Dalek, Paul Frank, Bill McMullen, Secret Base, and Amanda Visell. The value of the helmets lies between US$3000 and US$15,000.
