Continuing with his style of reworking Star Wars characters, artist Sillof has now placed them in a medieval fantasy. It is a land ruled by Deth Valkor, carrying a blade turned red with blood. Valkor’s Sturm Infantry helps keeps the realm under the tight grip of the dictator. But the tyrant king does face opposition, with the highlight being on Lukos Swordbearer, who was trained by Obiwoth Kindorn. Other figures in the list include Princess Lilani, Khan Solon, Charothku, Boran Fayne, Randor Deeptomb and Cadpollo Gildenrod.

We aren’t even going to pretend we were surprised by this one, we always knew an Angry Birds – Star Wars mashup would show up sooner or later. And of course, it is here. Angry Rebel Birds simply can’t wait to get their hands on to the Imperial Pigs. Hell, the set up even looks contextual, when you spare a thought for the Imperial Pigs. Prints and tees for these images are available on RedBubble.
A Star Wars fan is canvassing to build a “real” life-size AT-AT. Michael Koehler wants to build a full scale replica of the empire’s All Terrain Armored Transport; yes, he isn’t canvassing for a statue, but a fully functional AT-AT. Koehler believes the collective movement to build the AT-AT will show the world “”our brain power, our manufacturing prowess, our organizational skills and our geek-fueled eye for detail.” Also, it will show the rebels their place. Fund raising for the project is expected to start soon via Kickstarter. Well, if it got Detroit its robocop, it could get USA its AT-AT as well.
Millions of youth around the world wear T-shirts with Che printed on them. Some for support towards the revolutionary’s ideas, most without any idea whatsoever what a Che is. If you could draw a Venn diagram for this bust, it would be for the intersection of those who love Star Wars, and those who follow Che. The revolutionary-wookie bust is 6 inches tall and priced at $40.
You know you’ve mastered the art of badassery when you can chew a lightsaber like a popsicle. The lightsaber hilts come in two varieties (Luke and Vader) and light up the popsicle mold for a “realistic” effect, but you can of course make the lightsaber in whatever color you desire. Costs $35.
Gentlemen, there are lessons to be learnt from the Star Wars universe. Let these Star Wars PSAs be your guide.
This officially licensed Yoda statue is 30-inches tall, and is something of a “limited edition” with 10,000 pieces in the offing. Actually, 10,000 doesn’t quite sound like a limited-edition number. Anyways, I don’t see a Yoda statue having much of an appeal, but things would be entirely different if we were talking about a Vaders statue here, or for that matter, Han Solo in carbonite. Costs $500.
