While objects in our collection are usually the source of inspiration for developing arms and armour or replicas and props, the Dark Lord Helmet heavily influenced the black fibreglass helmet worn by the Fedayeen Saddam (men of sacrifice), founded by Saddam Hussain’s son Uday Hussain in 1995 who was a fan of the Star Wars films.
