I saw this image in an answer on another question

An X-ray view style drawing of Darth Vader's head and helmet, with a description about the helmet next to it. Part of a drawing of the feet and lower legs is also visible.

Where is it from? I am not a highly vested Star Wars fan but I am a person who is very interested in the back stories and physical abilities or devices used with certain characters and stories.

  • I'm thinking this really should be a comment on the original answer... I believe this is the one you are referencing, right? scifi.stackexchange.com/a/79034/2292 – K-H-W Apr 22 '17 at 1:02

    @Null Can we? I'm not convinced "What's the source for this thing in an answer because I don't have sufficient rep to comment?" is a question-type we want to allow. – Anthony Grist Apr 22 '17 at 9:04

    @AnthonyGrist - You're 100% wrong. It's a question type that we positively want to encourage. Asking about sources is definitely on-topic – Valorum Apr 22 '17 at 14:18
  • Why do his mechanical feet need toes, anyway, if he always wears boots over them? – JAB Apr 22 '17 at 19:54

That image is from Star Wars Blueprints: The Ultimate Collection, published by DK Books.

The full panel is show below.

If you're interested in Darth specifically, you might also want to consider getting hold of the Darth Vader: A 3-D Reconstruction Log factbook. It shows Vader in great detail and covers every part of his bodysuit.


This appears to be from Star Wars Blueprints: The Ultimate Collection.

While I don't have a copy to 100% confirm this against the contents of the book, the cover art matches the image.
