Boba Fett vs. Predator Artwork

locked in by thefreshdoodle d7zgqkp 1024x757 Boba Fett vs. Predator ArtworkSo here’s some really cool artwork by artist JP Valderrama which he calls Locked In. On the surface it looks as though Boba Fett has this Predator in his sights. But then you remember that Boba Fett can’t shoot much better than a StormTrooper and is in fact the worst bounty hunter in the entire galaxy. So then you realize that this Predator is going to rip Fett to shreds.

I love the style of the art work though. The background with its muted greys and blues really contrasts with the splashes of color on Fett and the laser sight. And the way the color has been allowed to streak gives a sense of movement to the whole image.

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay – Meet Snowbafett

10533836 342981385851236 7837391901194099574 o 683x1024 Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay   Meet SnowbafettNow I’m on record (repeatedly) on the subject of just how lame a  character Boba Fett actually is. Third worst in the entire Star Wars universe isn’t hyperbole. That’s actually where I think he ranks. Fett has one thing and one thing only going for him. He looks pretty cool (in a 70s sort of way).

So Amber Arden’s costume (as photographed here by Estrada Photography) takes the one good thing about Fett and makes it massively cooler by combining it with a Disney Princess. Snow White to be specific.

Not only does she give the Mandalorean armor the correct color scheme, she’s even put a bow on the helmet! Though since she’s got a bow in her hair too that does seem a tad excessive.

Snowbafett is probably a better bounty hunter than Boba too.

Star Wars Fan Art – Darth Talon Will Make You Tremble

Dsith girl by daroz d7qm50s Star Wars Fan Art   Darth Talon Will Make You Tremblearth Talon for those who don’t track all the details of the assorted books and comics is a Lethan Twi’lek who became a Sith Lady as part of Darth Krayt’s One Sith (so says Wookiepedia). This all happens 100 or so years after the fall of the Emperor so you can safely assume it’s not canon any more and ignore it.

As shown here in this image by daRoz though she is pretty awe inspiring don’t you think? Not someone to mess with unless you have a death wish judging by the look she’s giving. Really moody bit of artwork and the skin looks like skin not a costume.

LEGO Star Wars Cosplay – LEGO Boba Fett

photo 5 1 768x1024 LEGO Star Wars Cosplay   LEGO Boba FettHow about that for a geek triumvirate headline?

Yes this is a cosplay of the LEGO Star Wars minifigure of the galaxy’s least competent bounty hunter Boba Fett as lovingly created by CGS1 for his son. Even I think it’s really cool and I think Boba Fett is the third lamest character in Star Wars.

It’s probably the most convincing LEGO minifigure cosplay I’ve seen to date

UP Death Star Tattoo

Death Star + Balloons = Pixar / Star Wars Mashup Tattoo

UP Death Star Tattoo 768x1024 Death Star + Balloons = Pixar / Star Wars Mashup TattooOkay that’s pretty cool.

I only share tattoos occasionally because I’m not really into them as a general rule. But sometimes the design just looks so good or the idea is so clever they need sharing. And this is one of those.

What do you get if you combine Star Wars and Pixar’s UP? Well obviously you get a partially built Death Star being floated by a bunch of balloons.

Star Wars Cover Art – X-Wing Rogue Squadron #22

nadeau 1 661x1024 Star Wars Cover Art   X Wing Rogue Squadron #22John Nadeau did a lot of pencil and cover artwork for Dark Horse Comics Star Wars comics in the 90s. This is a copy of the painted cover for Star Was: X-Wing Rogue Squadron #22 without all the text getting in the way of the gorgeous visuals.

That particular issue was released back in September of 1997 and was the second part of a four part story called In The Empire’s Service.

On the world of Brentaal, Imperial General Isoto prepares for a Rebel assault. His goal: not to save the planet, or even the Imperial base, but to save himself. Isoto has the best shield there is, the Empire’s greatest fighter ace, Baron Fel. But having the Baron and having him take orders are two totally different things!

The story is collected in graphic novel form as Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron Vol 6 In The Empire’s Service for those who are interested.

Disney / Star Wars Cosplay – Slave Jasmine

slave leia jasmine by momokurumi d7lpzho 600x400 Disney / Star Wars Cosplay   Slave JasmineOkay so this is a Disney / Star Wars crossover, but it’s also now a Disney/Disney crossover. And technically both of the characters are Disney Princesses.

Combining Jasmine from Aladdin and Princess Leia in her Slave Leia costume does seem to work very well. Beside the slave Leia costume is just geek classic.

The stuffed tiger is an amusing touch too.Clever and funny cosplay by MomoKurumi.
