Me and a fellow 501st Legion brother
have created four custom carded Pink Royal Guard figures
to be auctioned off at Fan Days 3 this year for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Two will be auctioned off there and two on the 501st Legion forums.

What we need is 4 protech cases to hold the figures in so that they don't get damaged from finger prints ect...

Anyone willing to help us out with this will recieve
some 501st and clone Wars goodies.

The goodies can be mailed to you if you aren't attending or if your going I can personally give the goodies to you there.

The only thing I ask is that they are new and not scuffed up so that they are given away with the figures in Mint condition
to the winners of the auctions.

100% of all money raised is going to
Breast Cancer reseach.


Thanks to Rebelscum for featuring the card here on the site as Fan Days update #8.


The image of the Pink Royal Guard on the front of the card is a real costume created for this event, and you can see it there at Fan Days 3 in person as well as about 20 other 501st and Rebel Legion members wearing some sort of pink to show their support.

Thanks in advance for any help we may get for this great cause.

Did I mention we'll all have some pink on as well

Thanks brother, much appreciated!
My donation to the cause was to make these up.

Bidder's beware though, Steve Sansweet was the one to approve the images and he expressed interest in bidding, LOL!

Come say hi to me, I'll be there during the auction
of the cards with a pink pauldren as shown above

I have at least one figure I bought from Star Wars Shop.com where the figure's package came in another plastic snap case. Is that what you're talking about? If so I can bring it for you!

Re: WOW I made the front page with my donation!

Yah that's what I need are cases to hold them in so people can hold them and check them out without getting finger prints on them and also I'm sure the winners will want to display them as well protected from dust.

We'll have a 501st Legion Table there to support the cause and the Pink Royal Guard and I will be working the table first, then we'll be walking around so you can't miss a pink royal guard and a Sandtrooper with a pink pauldren LOL.

Thanks for your help!!
I'll hook you up proper for donating the case bro.

Anyone else?
I still need three more cases.
I can also be reached direct at,
projectphenix@hotmail.com
or http://www.myspace.com/projectphenix

Re: WOW I made the front page with my donation!

I am almost positive that I have the exact same cases made by another company strictly for SW figs. I have to check in my storage unit tomm for them. There should be five of them in total. If I can find them and they fit a normal SW carded fig, they are yours.

Thank you my friend!!!
We will hook you up with some "special" goodies since your donating all the cases we need.

I'll be working the 501st Legion Charity table first thing when the con opens for an hour till the next set of members takes over the next shift.
We can meet up then if that's cool with you?
Shoot me an e-mail at
projectphenix@hotmail.com
Thanks again for all your help brother!

Re: WOW I made the front page with my donation!

Yes the figure's went for $300 a piece with good ol Steve Sansweet being one of the winner's LOL, and as weird as it was, he even asked me to sign it
along with the Uncle Owen Custom I made for him.

We also had a 501st donation room and with those donations, a total of $1500 was raised for Breast Cancer Research.
I've posted a video of the auction on youtube which can be seen here.

Special thanks for the donations of the cases that the figures were given away in, much appreciated.

Thanks again everyone!!!






This one will be auctioned off exclusive on the 501st Legion forum.
It was signed by all the actors from the SW trilogy.
I didn't have enough room to add the voice actor's but I did have a few artist's sign my pink Pauldren including Mr. Fioni.

Simply awesome stuff. And the TIE Fighter Pilot holding the pink rubber duckey is hilarious.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
