Undeniably, Darth Vader is the most iconic movie villain of all time. And his intimidating all-black ensemble is owed a good deal of credit for that fact. Now, one of the character’s on-screen costumes from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is headed to Bonhams’ auction block.

In case you don’t remember, Episode V is the film that unveiled the truth behind Vader’s identity — that he is, in fact, Luke Skywalker’s father. It’s also widely considered to be the best Star Wars film ever, which makes the prospect of owning the suit worn by David Prowse (the bodybuilder who portrayed Vader in the original trilogy) in the film all the more enticing. This 100% complete outfit — including the helmet, cape, gloves, pants, boots, and everything else — comes with an appropriately insane estimated price of as much as $2 million dollars. Of course, there are plenty of film fanatics out there who might tell you this is a priceless silver screen artifact. The auction will commence on May 14th of this year.

Purchase: $1,000,000+
