    Art Chris great work on putting all this together. It explains why Chris has been so busy and with good reason and good cause. I for one cannot wait to see the productions that come out of this and all the money that will be raised for Make a Wish. My hats off to all

    Congratulation for this great opportunity for TDH and its talented artists! This achievement symbolizes that 'elite costuming' that was the forum's slogan and was always controversial for others. Can't wait to see all the amazing helmets!

    Very excited to see this announced ! Rob, you are correct in that this is ONE of a few things that has taken me away from the mainstream in recent months and created delays for folks. Hopefully our family here will find some understanding with menow knowing my involvement and taking comfort in that it was all for the greater good. Especially with the new Seller Rating System in place (hint, hint )

    Art, as always, it's a very selfless thing you are doing here. I wish that I could speak ofwhat you've sacrificed to make this happen. People should know your nature. With some luck, people will get the idea just how generous you are

    Chris

    Boba Fett is such an iconic figure, he well and truly captured our attention even though his time on screen was so brief. If you think about it, we were his first bounty. There was no escape. I look forward to seeing the artists interpretations.

    Thanks, everyone. We are incredibly happy to be sponsoring the Boba Fett side of this project. This project has been in the works for almost a year now and it is absolutely astounding how many people end up being involved in making what seems like a simple idea come to life. We have had some incredible support, both here at the site and outside of it. I really want to thank Mary Franklin again, because without Lucasfilm this would have never happened and Mary really came to bat for us and pushed to get this through.Best of all, I have already seen some of the concept art that the artists have come up with and their ideas are going to blow you away. I am so excited to start sharing some of this with you!

    I like that they used Seeker's Tuskegee airmen TK helmet for the before and after shot on the CVI page.

    Re: Article: The As You Wish Project - An Introduction

    Is there any way to still get in on the project? I am a Lucasfilm-approved artist, but this is the first I've heard this was going down. I did something similar for the Philadelphia Phillies last year where I painted a custom 6-ft tall Phanatic statue that was displayed in the city and at the ballpark then auctioned off for charity.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately all the slots have already been filled. However, if this project is a success, we would certainly be interested in doing it again!
