Back in July 2014, the man who originally sculpted Darth Vader’s helmet had officially announced on Facebook that he started working on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now in similar fashion Muir announced his involvement with Rogue One.
One of Muir’s most memorable work was the sculpting of the Darth Vader helmet and armor using Ralph McQuarrie’s design in 1976 for Star Wars: A New Hope. He also sculpted the Storm Trooper armor, Death Star Droid, CZ 3 and finishing work on C3PO.
We’ve already seen some of his work on The Force Awakens:
Now the question is, if he is working on Vader again, or another character. There have already been multiple rumors about Vader’s appearance in Rogue One, and considering the time when the movie takes place, a brief cameo by Vader seems quite possible.
