In order to raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, eFX Inc. and the 501st TK Project are auctioning off an autographed Star Wars stormtrooper helmet. The helmet was signed by George Lucas, 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. As of this writing, the helmet is currently selling for $5,100 and would be worth far more if Lucas had written on it “Sorry for the prequels.”
