A prototype Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) skiff guard helmet from the production of Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Calrissian disguised himself as one of Jabba the Hutt's guards to help rescue Han Solo (Harrison Ford).

Lando's disguise helmet was designed by Nilo Rodis-Jamero, who came up with the idea for a helmet with strips of leather covers when he saw a softball glove sitting on top of a co-workers head. The helmet is made of vacuum-formed plastic with maroon leather coverings, brass-colour metal studs, and a yellow and white resin face mask featuring pointed teeth. This version differs to the final helmet used on screen, especially in the color, which is more maroon on this prototype than the final helmet. It exhibits signs of wear and age including some staining on the interior and chipping on the back and left side. Dimensions: 38 cm x 38 cm x 48.25 cm (15" x 15" x 19")

Estimate: £10,000 - 15,000 Ω
