We’ve mentioned Sillof’s steampunk themed Star Wars creations before, and know he’s posted his Return of the Jedi figures. Check out the way cooler than Lucas’ Luke Skywalker over there on the right. He’s got a lot more for you to look at, ones of note: Princess Leia, Bike Scout and Emperor Palpatine. And wow, look at Admiral “It’s a trap!” Ackbar! Sweet.
For some reason, the combination of steampunk and Star Wars just seems to go together. Maybe it’s the Victorian aesthetic applied to the technology that is just really interesting. Is there anyone else out there who thinks a Steampunk Star Wars would be an awesome spectacle to watch?
It certainly would put any of the prequel movies to shame and it would be unlike anything else on film…
Michael Hielemann has braved the wrath of Lucas and Company by posting these really cool storyboards from the original Star Wars on his Flickr page. There’s a lot of cool stuff there, including storyboards showing the original Millenium Falcon before it morphed into the ship that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. If you enjoy behind the scenes looks like this, take a gander. And remember there is a ton of cool art related Star Wars stuff you can find all over the place.
