Star Wars NFL helmets by John Raya

John Raya is an illustrator from Mexico City who has put together an excellent Star Wars fan art project just in time for the Super Bowl. He illustrated National Football League helmets if they were from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars NFL includes teams like the Yavin Rebels (above) and the the Nal Hutta Hutts. We’ve heard the Nal Hutta Hutts don’t yell hut before hiking the ball. They say “make them suffer for this outrage”. Han Solo can’t play ’cause he always makes a false start and blames it on Greedo.

Our favorites among John Raya’s Star Wars NFL helmets are collected here. Thanks to Cheezburger for the assist.
