Baroque Star Wars

Bonnie Burton | December 6, 2007

Sweden-based artist Mattias Adolfsson creates Baroque-style portraits (think wigs and Steampunk gears with a cartoony twist) of Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Luke Sylkwalker, C-3PO and R2-D2, a stormtrooper, and even the Death Star and the AT-AT!

See all of Adolfsson’s art here:

Wrecked AT-AT Wins the Day

Pete Vilmur | December 4, 2007


Starship Modeler recently hosted a contest that asked contestants to submit their best model “wreck” — that is, any model that might be defined as“derelict, broken, abandonned, war-weary, busted, beat up, junker, hangar queen, crashed, pranged, in disrepair, poorly maintained and held-together-with-baling-wire-and-prayers”, etc.

Scratch modeler Dimitri Kaliviotis took home the first place prize with his stunning 1/32 scale AT-AT, which truly looks like something post-apocalyptic from that galaxy far, far way. Check out the rest of the entries for more Star Wars-inspired wrecks.

Yoda Sculptor Visits London Exhibit

Pete Vilmur | October 11, 2007


Star Wars legend Stuart Freeborn, sculptor/designer of Chewbacca and Yoda, among others, was recently invited to Star Wars: The Exhibition at County Hall in London. There, the 92-year-old Freeborn toured the scores of original props and costumes, accompanied by Bob Keen (who worked for Freeborn during Empire and Jedi) and Jonathan Sands of Weird & Wonderful (see image above).

Sands says he will be shooting a short documentary of Freeborn for another exhibition which will be taking place at County Hall shortly.
