The Shoe Project is the newewst charity art project from the 501st Legion. The project started as an idea of a member of the MidSouth Garrison and grew from there. We wanted to do something similar to the Helmet Project's that have been such a huge success at Star Wars Celebrations but would also fit the smaller scale of a local convention, Lexington Comic and Toy Convention in this case.

We wanted to support a local charity and the UK Childrens Hospital seemed like the best fit for what we do. After a few quick emails to Lucasfilm and Vans we had the all clear and began contacting artists. We were on a tight deadline so the shoes had to have a quick turnaround. But we had some excellent artists involved who created some awesome shoes.

All money raised will go to the hospital 100%



You can find out everything you want to know and see all the shoes at facebook.com/starwarsshoeproject. We have everything from shoes converted to a Cloud Car to shoes that look like Boba Fett's helmet. All the shoes are currently listed on ebay, you can find the links on facebook or find us on ebay starwarsshoeproject2013.

If you would like to be involved in next years shoe project, contact us on facebook and let us know your interested. We hope to expand the project with more artists involved next year.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
