LOS ANGELES, Calif. (December 14, 2010) – To help raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, eFX Inc. and the 501st TK Project will auction off one of the most unique Star Wars collectibles ever created in a special online auction that will begin at noon (Eastern time) today.

On its own, eFX’s limited edition replica stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope, is a sought-after collectible, but the version eFX will auction to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation features more than a dozen signatures from the talented cast and crew of the original Star Wars Trilogy, making it one of the most rare Star Wars collectibles ever offered to fans. To view the helmet and place a bid, a href="http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574802226&toolid=10001&campid=5336231865&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi3.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dll%3FViewUserPage%26userid%3Dmawfa1980" target="_blank">follow this link.

The helmet features signatures from Star Wars creator George Lucas; actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Frank Oz, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Billy Dee Williams, Jeremy Bulloch and Warwick Davis; Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope and Episode V The Empire Strikes Back producer Gary Kurtz, director, the late Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back); screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (Empire and Return of the Jedi); and composer John Williams.

“The helmet traveled more than 25,000 miles – from Southern California to Skywalker Ranch to London and New York and many places in between to be signed, and it’s an amazing sight to behold,” said Bryan Ono, president of eFX Inc., who spearheaded the efforts to collect the autographs.

The auction will be held in conjunction with the 501st Legion, an organization created by Star Wars fans that helps raise awareness of local charity needs and efforts and the Make-A-Wish Foundation that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

This eFX stormtrooper helmet can also be viewed online at eFX’s website and the 501st TK Project website, www.501sttkproject.com.
