    Plaid Stallions Fake Vader



    I have no idea who Crowd Pleasers is but I can only imagine they were not officially licensed by Lucasfilm and probably made a fortune doing this.


    Love Darth's Kenner blaster, just like he never used.


    This is the perfect type of photo I'm seeking for my next book project Mall of Justice, a love letter to the sensational personal appearances of our comic book, TV, movie and toy icons during the 1970s and 80s.


    Whether it's Adam West at a car show, He-Man at a Toys R Us opening or an ersatz Chewbacca at a stereo store, Mall of Justice melds vintage photos with childhood recollection of these epic meetings.


    While I will design andeventually publish the book (via PlaidStallions Press), it's a project we can all get involved with!









    How you can get involved:
    I'm looking for your photos and your recollections! Even if you've submitted them to the site before, I would likely need higher resolution and I'd want to
    talk to you.





    What am i looking for:

    Appearances of costumed characters during the 1970s and 80s, be they from comicbooks (Batman, the Hulk) , cartoons (, toy lines (Masters of the Universe, GI Joe) or movies (Planet of the Apes,Star Wars) , a date and place and a description of how you felt meeting theseiconic characters. Did you think they were real?




    Does it have to
    specifically be in a mall?:

    HECK NO! Car shows, county fairs, grocery stores, heck I'd even accept birthday party shots. It's all fair game.

    Thanks everyone for reading and I hope you'll share your experiences with me!

    Are those spurs on Vader's boots? It's hard to make out what it is but there is something sticking out of his boot above his heel.

    McQuarrie Vader had a blaster. I love this. Most people get chills over Rogue One Vader, I get excited over stuff like this.
