Was Darth Vader a 16th Century Samurai General?

Don’t you think there is a remarkable similarity between this Samurai outfit (made of polished black steel) and the outfit worn by Darth Vader?

The five piece Samurai outfit was donated to Sendai City Museum by The House of Date [Dah-teh]. The size and style of the ornate gold crescent fitted to the helmet indicates that it would have been worn by a very senior general indeed.

There is no information on the Sendai City Museum web site to suggest that George Lucas has ever visited their museum, so it’s pure speculation that the two similar outfits are somehow linked!
