50 stormtrooper helmets transformed into clever works of art

Star Wars stormtrooper helmets aren't supposed to be set on fire, are they? Or covered in Ewok fur? Well ... not usually. But to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 50 artists and celebrities did exactly that—and more—turning those iconic helmets into one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

The 501st Legion is teaming up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to auction off custom stormtrooper helmets to benefit the charity. If you're at the Star Wars Celebration V Convention in Orlando, Fla., this Sunday starting at 2 p.m., you'll have the opportunity to place bids on these unique pieces. (We're tempted by the Lost-themed helmet decorated by J.J. Abrams, so please don't outbid us!)

We've managed to find 38 of the 50 awesome helmets that will be for sale, but check out the 501st Legion's blog, where you can find more details about the helmets and the auction.
