The Force Is Strong With These Custom Star Wars Helmets

Check out these awesome Clone Trooper & Boba Fett helmet mash-ups made by various artists as part of the As You Wish Project.

The As You Wish Project is a charity fundraising event set to auction over 40 redesigned Boba Fett and Clone Trooper helmets in aid of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The helmets will be exhibited at Star Wars: Celebration VI in Orange County, California for one week and will be sold after the event on Ebay, with all proceeds being donated to the charity.
For those with pockets as deep as the Sarlacc pit, the bidding begins this Thursday.

You can find a link to the auction page below:

This year's As You Wish Project is sponsored by The Dented Helmet, eFX Collectibles, and the 501st & includes over 40 artists, some of which were involved in designing and building the original Star Wars costumes, including Joe Johnston and Sandy Dhuyvetter, who helped design Boba Fett's now iconic armor. The artists have taken inspiration from a variety of places, including movies & history, and the art styles of H.R. Giger & Damien Hirst.

The detail in these customs is incredible, especially with the one pictured below, which has to be one of my personal favourites.

Awesome isn't it? Seriously contemplating selling a Kidney to raise the cash to buy it...

All of the artists have done an incredible job & I'm sure each one will fetch a Jabba's Ransom for the charity.

Hit the jump to check out some more of my favourites and visit the As You Wish Project's web site for more information on each artist and their designs.
