Steampunk Star Wars

I did have something witty and insightful that I planned to post today, but between toying with the pacing of CALLARION AT NIGHT and general busyness, I kind of forgot. So instead I will today regale you with photos of Steampunk Star Wars action figures.



The view of all the characters -- Obi-Wan is on the far left and a stormtrooper is on the far right.




C-3PO and R2-D2


Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker




Chewbacca and Han Solo




Stormtrooper and Darth Vader

Am I too much of a nerd if I say that I really really want to buy the entire set?

You are not a nerd. They are very cool. (Well, maybe you are a nerd, but who cares?)

Valerie Geary said...

Okay... that is AWESOME!!! (Did I just reveal my true nerd colors just now??) :D

Matthew Delman said...

Valerie --

Yes, yes you did. But that's ok.

Susan --

Thanks for the OK on being nerdy. These figures are just too cool to not share with you all.

Lady Glamis said...

Oh my goodness that's FANTASTIC!

Natalie Whipple said...

Oh, I want. I want! Wow, I love whoever decided to make these. /drool

L. T. Host said...

You're not alone. I want them too, and I'm not even that huge of a fan of Star Wars. (I know, I know... I just don't get it, I guess). But yes-- want!!!

Bane of Anubis said...

Very cool, but where are the ewoks?

Stephanie Thornton said...

We all know you're a nerd, Matt.

But those are soooo cool!

Susan Quinn said...

These are beyond cool, somewhere in a perfect storm of awesomeness.

I'm really, REALLY, going to have to start reading steampunk now.

Bane - I'm pretty sure steampunk would be an advancement in technology for the Ewoks.

Also: Is is me, or does Chewie look unchanged from the original??

Matthew Delman said...

Susan Quinn --

The original Chewie just had the bandoleer as clothing. This one includes a vest and pants.

"Perfect storm of awesomeness" ... totally have to use that phrase somewhere now.

All --

I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one set to drooling by these.

Amalia T. said...

No, no! Not at nerd-- a COLLECTOR. And man, totally worth snapping up.

Emma Michaels said...

I love it! Clicked follow!

L.T. Elliot said...

Darth Vadar looks BOSS! I want that set too!

Natalie said...

Those are awesome Matt.

Those are great!

Carrie Harris said...

I've been coveting these for AGES. Genius, I tell you. GENIUS.

And Luke looks kind of non-wuss. How did they accomplish that?

Shelby said...

well, being a nerd isn't a bad thing is it?

:)

cheers.

p.s. I like the figures.

Disgruntled Bear said...

I've been a recovering nerd for years, but I just had a major relapse.

Mor Elen said...

I think it's more geeky than nerdy to want stuff this cool!
