Pieces of Lando Calrissian's (Billy Dee Williams) skiff guard helmet test components from the production of Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Calrissian disguised himself as one of Jabba the Hutt's barge guards to help free Han Solo (Harrison Ford) from carbonite.
This set of six eggshell-color resin pieces are components from the monstrous face mask element of the skiff guard helmet, and were made during the design phase. "Lando Skiff Test" and the initials "T.C." are carved into the back of the large piece. The set exhibits some chipping and some adhesive putty residue from production, but it remains in good overall condition.
Dimensions (largest): 7 1/2" x 5" x 2 1/2" (19 cm x 12.75 cm x 6.5 cm);
(smallest): 1 1/4" x 3/4" x 1/2" (3.25 cm x 2 cm x 1.5 cm)
Estimate: $1,500 - 2,500
