Samurai Meets Star Wars In A More Civilised Boba Fett Helmet

Samurai. Skyrim. Or even ancient Mayan prophecies. Star Wars helmets are fertile ground for artistic reinterpretation. But now, it's all for a cause that's bigger than simply awesome art.

The As You Wish Helmet Project is a charity art project at features over 40 reworked Boba Fett and Clone Trooper helmets that will be auctioned off, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Some of the helmets were first shown off earlier this summer, such as Volpin Props' take on Skyrim meets Star Wars.

Check out some of the other works from the likes of Japanese figure maker Kotobukiya, effects house Weta Workshop, artist John Brosio, artist Alex Buechel, and once again Volpin Props.

Find out more at the As You Wish Helmet Project's Facebook page or on website The Dented Helmet — that site also has interviews with the artists that are worth checking out.

The helmets hit the eBay auction block on August 27.

    I guess we've come full circle then. Vader's helmet design was copied from the armor of Date Masamune, but with the half-moon crest removed.

    Impressive...most impressive!
