Formula 1 driver Max Chilton has also created an exclusive Skylanders toy for Make-A-Wish.

Skylanders figure designed by former Stig Ben Collins to be auctioned for Make-A-Wish

Ben Collins (former The Stig) and Formula 1 driver Max Chilton have designed special Skylanders SuperChargers toys to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Activision is donating seven exclusive Skylanders toys to Make-A-Wish and the charity will auction off the models to the highest bidder, with the proceeds helping to support the wishes granted to children with life-threatening medical conditions around the world.

Alongside Collins and Chilton, other personalities from the racing world such as Timo Glock, as well as French TV presenter Joan Faggianelli, kitesurfing champion Gisela Pulido and popular YouTubers St3pny and TheKing77 designed figures for the cause.

“On behalf of my colleagues across Europe, I would like to thank Activision, and all the famous faces involved in the project, for this fantastic collaboration," said Jon Stettner, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish International.

"We are thrilled with the unique vehicles that have been specially designed and the money raised will help us in our ongoing efforts to grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.”
