May 4th has come and gone, but that doesn't mean that the force isn't with you anymore. It might not be Star Wars Day anytime soon, but the legacy lives on in the memories of millions of Star Wars fans all over the world.
And of course, through highly-collectible memorabilia like these custom and re-imaged Boba Fett, Clone Trooper, and Stormtrooper helmets. There are about forty of these helmets currently up for auction on eBay, with all of the proceeds from the sales going straight to the Make a Wish foundation as part of its 'As You Wish Charity' project.
The entire lineup was actually exhibited at the Star Wars Celebration VI earlier. This is probably the only time you'll see helmets like these created by some of the biggest special effects companies and artists, like Legacy Effects and Jon Wollack. These artists didn't hold anything back, as you'll see helmets with aliens in them (The Scavenger helmet) and some inspired by recent movies like Prometheus (check out the Epimetheus Fettt for this one.)
Check out the gallery and you might see something you like. Head on over to the Make a WisheBay store for the whole shebang. Don't waste any time getting there either, because the auctions all end in a matter of hours.
Be warned, though: they don't come cheap. Some of the bids have gone as high as $17,850, with the cheapest helmet at $510. Not cheap at all--but hey, at least it's for charity.
