If Star Wars was a Samurai Epic

So yes, we’ve kind of been on Star Wars overload the past few weeks, but I’m sorry, amazing stuff keeps popping up that I feel like I’m obligated to share. Such is the case today with Samurai Wars, a series of action figures that imagines what Star Wars would have been like if it were a Samurai epic, a concept that shouldn’t be too hard to imagine seeing how the Jedi were essentially space samurai and major plot points of the series were taken from Akira Kurosawa.

These come courtesy of Sillof’s workshop, and cover the full spectrum of characters from Threepio to Chewie to Fett to Solo to Skywalker to Vader and beyond. You can see most above, but you really want to check out the full gallery below.
