Dean Plantamura, 501st Legion Public Relations Officer, writes in to give us all the details on the final TK Helmet Project for Make-A-Wish!

After raising $50,150 for Make-A-Wish through the sale of more than 50 artistically-customized Stormtrooper helmets at Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando last August, the 501st Legion has one more exciting offering up its armored sleeve. As with the previous helmets designed for the 501st TK Project (, the "EFX Signature Helmet" will be auctioned for charity, with funds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, one of the Legion's favorite partners. This particular helmet took much longer to produce due to the logistics of tracking down and obtaining autographs from 13 Star Wars legends including George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Frank Oz, Billy Dee Williams, James Earl Jones, John Williams and even the late Irvin Kershner (who died last month). Fans and potential bidders can visit to see photos of this one-of-a-kind collectible helmet as well as all 13 autographs emblazoned upon it. Dates and times of the auction to be posted as soon as they are available. Special thanks to eFX Collectibles for donating the helmet and coordinating the autographs.

Thanks, all!

TK-899, Carolina Garrison
501st Legion Public Relations Officer
