Want to be the cool geek on the block? Well now you can by owning one of the original Darth Vader costumes used in George Lucas’ “Star Wars: The Empire Strike Back.” An original Darth Vader movie costume is being auctioned off at Christie’s in London and it is expected to bring in around $365,000.

The main components of the 1980 costume, including the helmet and mask, are considered to have been production-made for “The Empire Strikes Back,” the second of the “Star Wars” series to be released, Christie’s added.

“While there are limited public records of the costumes produced and used for the first Star Wars trilogy, the helmet, mask and shoulder armor from the present example have a provenance leading back to the film studios around the time of production,” Christie’s said.
