Love Star Wars and have Disney/George Lucas deep pockets?

Today, May 4th, is “Star Wars Day”, and Japanese jeweler Tanaka Kikinzoku, with the help of 10 goldsmiths, has created a 33 lb. 24k Darth Vadar mask.

The mask must be custom ordered and takes approximately 3 months to make.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens Dec. 15. Wonder if Tanaka has plans to display one of these at the world premiere? If so, he’ll need a bowling ball bag, insurance and someone strong with the force to guard it!
