Steampunk has a talent for attracting all manner of nerds into its embrace. It’s just edgy enough and enamored with technology to inspire things like the Steam Trek film I presented to you a few weeks ago. When it comes to all things nerdy with a sci-fi appeal, where there are Trekkies, there are almost certainly Star Wars fans as well.
So what would Star Wars do with a Steampunk palette? How about this:
That’s a set of Steampunk inspired Star Wars action figures. And they are amazing.
Created by Sillof, these action figures re-imagine the main characters of the original Star Wars series in the Steampunk aesthetic. He insists that they are “kind of Steampunk, but not really” but I am sure that this will appeal to any Steampunk and Star Wars fan with a passion for action figures.
I really like the reinterpretation of Obi-Wan. He’s got a medieval knight feel to him while maintaining the hermit aspect of his exile on Tatooine. That, and Obi-Wan has always been one of my favorite Star Wars characters.
