Default Darth vader welding hood??!!

I have been looking for a Darth Vader welding hood online for about three months. I can't believe that with how popular the movies are and how popular custom welding hoods are the there isn't a person or company out there who makes them. If you know where to get one please let me know.

I think that would be kinda interesting. Though I am not a star wars fan of any proportation, a Darth Vader hood might be neat. I guess just keep searching, someone out there has bound to have thought of a similar idea.

May the force be with you! (Sorry, I just couldnt resist!)

I imagine that something like that would have to be licensed from Lucas films and that would drive the cost out of sight.

There's a short parody film "Hardware Wars" where the Darth character uses a welding helmet. It's kinda funny, as the low-budget props include a steam iron, canister vacuum cleaner and a toaster. Two parts:
