I’ve been meaning to post this since I saw it on Star Wars Day (May the 4th) but I’ve been too lazy. However I told @Wantonitalics I would post it for her today so I am…
What do you get if you try to re-imagine the cast of the original Star Wars Trilogy as Cyber Punk Hackers? Artist Sillof has done just that. He’s also done a 2 series of steam punk, a 50’s TV science fiction serial, a Wild West, and a medieval set toys as well as Samurai and WWII sets…
I’m on my iPad so I can’t chase up the attribution for this image properly at the moment… Its by Aaron Williams of Do Gooder Press. I looked there and he has a bunch of we comics one of which I assume this was published on.
You may have noticed I’m clearing out my backlog of draft posts… I’ll let the guy who created this awesome Skeletor/Darth Vader bust put it into context:
by Ryan Renders
“I was picked to create a custom Darth Vader helmet by Halloweencostumes.com and I decided to turn my full size replica helmet into a bust of Skeletor. As I was creating this colossal custom I decided to Incorporated a few more elements into the piece that would represent Vader. So I created the sword of power but used Vader’s light saber for the handle and I Incorporated the Empire logo into his chest armor.”
Oddly (and I’m not sure whether or not I’ve said this here before) I got a bit confused when I was a kid and was convinced that Skeletor was really He-Man’s father…
Entitled Plastic Heroes by Chris McVeigh (Tumblr) (Redbubble) (Twitter) This T-Shirt pretty much sums up my childhood, He-Man, Bat Man, Thundercat, the Smurfs, GI Joe, Transformers, Lego, TMNT, Star Wars, and Voltron. (I never was a WWF fan…)
It is made of awesome… And makes me want to re-watch all of these shows.

I’ve seen one too many Darth Vader samurai images in my time but I’ve never seen an Optimus Prime one, which is odd because Optimus in my mind embodies the ethos of a Samurai much more than Darth Vader does. Also the Transformers are a Japanese creation, where Star Wars is only loosely based on Hidden Fortress by Akira Kurusawa.
