Hi, everyone. Remember that Steam Wars contest FBTB had a while back? Well, I felt like revisiting that theme to render the main characters of Star Wars in a steampunk style.

Han was already very steampunky looking, so I just had to give him some goggles and a ray gun. :grin: And I didn't include Chewie because he doesn't translate into steampunk well, unless you turn him into a hairy human like this. Here's a back view of some of the more mechanical characters:

I hope you like them, and may the steam be with you. :grin:

Yet another excellent theme crossover of the SW characters Oky! I thought you'll run out of ideas after the highly-successful Toy Wars and Hog Wars, but it seems you still have some 'tricks off your sleeves' eh? All of them look really 'Steampunk-y', though I think you did the best on Vader, 3PO, and Boba, probably because they had the most 'revisions' as opposed to the human characters (Luke, Han, Leia). Great job as always! :thumbup:

Great job with all of these, Oky! My personal favorite is Darth Vapor, although I think a black helmet would work better for him than the top hat.

This is amazing, Oky!  I especially love what you did with Boba Fett.  I'd have to say the only one I'm not completely enchanted with is Vader, whose body is great but the head doesn't really "do it for me".  I can't say how it could be done better, though.  Brickdoctor might have the right idea with that helmet.

These are great!  I particularly like the Vader fig.  You really managed to get a mechanical feel to it.  The other details, like the lightsaber and the jet pack are great too.  Really impressive. :thumbup:

Did I review your Academy review and you've waited more than three days for a follow up after you fixed it?  PM me.  I'll get it done.

I really like these Oky, 3PO & Vader are particular highlights for me. I also really like your functional take on the light-sabres.

Wow these are great, I love Boba Fett, the helmet suits Him. Hahah Han is already SP, love the lightsabres to.

Very nice! Darth Vader is certainly the best one, Boba and 3PO are also cool.
You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done.

A very steam-punk look to it, vader is cool but I agree that is not the best helmet for him. Boba Fett is my favorite with that awesome propellor pack! :classic:

Now I know what you've been up too! :tongue: All of them are very good looking.  Boba is my favorite from the bunch though. :thumbup:

Boba and Vader are my favourites.

Every minifig is creative and well made.

Good job!

AWESOME 'Oky Wan' I agree with many Vader is the best figure indeed, though Boba with a heli-pack would be a close second ! :wink:
May the steam brick be with you always as well ! :grin:
