"Star Wars" Fun, Part 2


"QUANTUM SHOT" #335
Link - by Avi Abrams



Still Going Strong (after all these years)

The dedication and exuberance of "Star Wars" die-hard fans are nothing short of astonishing. Somebody should pitch them against the "Star Trek" loyalists and see who comes up with the wildest ideas and endures the longest without any new movie releases. But you have to admit, The Epic Good vs. Evil Battle is never quite as fun without Luke and Vader, and we have to thank George Lucas for that.

Any material will do

The statues/sculptures/models of famous characters can be made out of scrapmetal:
(like at Yumimodal)

Darth Vader's Brief Personality Disorder

The poor guy had one rebellion too many, and slightly shifted in his style. His act got weirder and weirder:

He suddenly got a taste for Harry Potter:

Launched his own line of environmentally-friendly products:



Became very famous on Digg and Reddit (with this picture):



inspired some bizarre bus stop sculptures:



Said "good-bye" to all his other gas-guzzler transports:



Good thing he found some solace among the cute schoolgirls in Japan:

Vader deals with his angst, using Colonel Sanders:

...releases stress by reading manga:



and finally settles in his usual groove:

his kids don't seem to be the cheerful kind, though:

One Day in the Life of Ivan the Stormtrooper

Being recruited by the Evil Empire has its drawbacks... Spending a night in the motel:



Paying with pretty neat money:

Catching on the news:

In the meantime, rebel fighters are totally lost in time:

And Han, as always, saves the day:

Bonus: Rare Concept

In this rare concept art by Ralph McQuarrie we can see smaller Death Stars, serving as sentinels...

When I lived in Tucson Az I worked with a guy who's legal name was Obi Wan Kenobi. He was an actor and he said he changed his name to something people would remember. I have a Christmas card that he gave me that he signed as Obi Wan Kenobi.
