Darth Vader Hot Air Balloon: The Dark Side Feels Light-Headed

by Range

While I’ve always liked Darth Vader, I don’t think I ever would have thought about creating a hot air balloon out of his helmet. That’s what Belgian balloonists Benoit and Michel Lambert did when they commissioned Cameron Balloons to build this Darth Vader Balloon, after getting the official approval of Lucasfilm.

This balloon is almost 86 feet tall with the platform attached, and it has immediately become my favorite balloon. I can’t imagine how awesome it must look when you first see it. The balloon makes special appearances all around the world and it’s coming to Reno in September.

This incredible-looking balloon will take place in the Great Reno Balloon Race on September 9th through 11th, 2011.
