This awesome project is actually from last year, but it's still pretty great.The Vader Project had an auction July of 2010 at Freeman’s Auction House in Philadelphia. Over 100 customized Darth Vader helmets were auctioned off at approximately $3,000 each. All bids started at $1,500 and were highly coveted by Star Wars collectors and art collectors alike. If you weren’t in the Philadelphia area, you were able to bid online while watching a live stream of the auctioneer. DKE Toys has published a 200-page full colour print book of all 100 Vader Project pieces that were sold, that you can get here.
