Steampunk is a thing, it’s a big, big thing, and suddenly everyone is doing it. Some are doing it badly, and some are doing it very, very well. Here’s some of the latter…
We’ll start with a steampunk Star Wars stormtrooper:
Bad-ass! But let’s go even badder.
The biggest, baddest badass in the galaxy far, far away, the hulking and menacing Darth freakin’ Vader:
Boom! You can hear the clanks and the hiss of steam and the clang of metal feet trodding down steel corridors, trailed by clouds of stinking, black smoke. That’s a man who could crush your neck with his mailed fists, never mind some silly Force grip.
Going to the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the lovely and industrious Princess Leia Organa, her beauty not a whit diminished by the dirt smudged across her face:
That’s truly a leader in the Rebel Alliance. But wait, there’s more…
There’s also a thoroughly disgusting Jabba the Hut, a weirdly appealing Yoda, a charming and whimsical Jawa, plus Bobba Fett, Chewbacca, Han Solo, and on and on and on. And all of them are wild and weird and marvelously well done.
