#TriviaTuesday: "The Scavenger" by Legacy Effects, which sold at auction for $17,209.89, with all proceeds going to the Make-a-Wish foundation.

Made for the As You Wish Helmet Project of 2012, this studio imagined that "an indigenous lifeform of Tatooine finds #BobaFett's helmet at the Great Pit of Carkoon and repurposes it as his shell."

George Lucas himself saw this among other custom helmets at #StarWars Celebration VI, where he said aloud that this should be called "The Survivior" because at the time he believed Boba Fett didn't die in the Sarlacc.

This panel comes from the game-changing comic "Twin Engines of Destruction," which originally was published in four issues of a now-defunct #StarWars Galaxy Magazine from Topps.

The comic was written by Andy Mangels, who also coined the name Jaster Mereel, which was since change up after the prequels, and even since has been coined a "legend." #
