Remember the extremely popular Vader Project from Celebration IV? (If you didn't get a chance to see it at CIV, check out the FCTV video that was taken of the event). Well, fans can rejoice once again as they will be treated to the TK Project coming to Celebration V courtesy of the 501st Legion.
"2010 is the year that nearly 50 artistically-customized Stormtrooper helmets donated by eFX Collectibles will be displayed at Star Wars Celebration V, and then auctioned to support Make-A-Wish Foundation. The latest completed helmet, an homage to the 1954 sci-fi horror classic "The Creature from the Black Lagoon," comes from artist (and 501st member) Matt Busch (TK-3477). As this charity art project continues to gain momentum, Jeremy Bulloch (BH-5211) and Honorary Member Tory Belleci have also signed on to put their mark on a TK helmet. Click here to learn more about the 501st TK Project and check out the amazing photos of the helmets that have been submitted so far."

UPDATE: Another Star Wars artist has been announced as a contributor to the TK Project. See the following announcement posted by "tuskentrooper" on the official 501st Legion website:
"With the addition of Star Wars artist Brian Rood, TK Project coordinator Chris TB-111 reports that he is now officially out of helmets. Each blank Stormtrooper helmet donated by eFX Collectibles has been shipped out to an artist or celebrity to be creatively customized and returned to the 501st. Plans are being made to auction the nearly 50 one-of-a-kind helmets at Star Wars Celebration V in August 2010, with proceeds going to Make-A-Wish.
