We have been meaning to post this up for a while, so apologies to Sillof on the lateness.
He e-mailed us a couple of months ago asking if we would feature his latest collection of outstanding genre themed Star Wars tribute figures, (see our last post on his amazing work HERE). This time around he has used a medieval theme to re-imagine what Chewbacca, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and the rest of the cyber gang would look in a line he has called ‘Long Ago & Far Away‘. Sillof explains on his website:
When I saw A New Hope in the theater when I was a kid I thought it was the greatest Sci Fi movie ever. As I got older I realized Star Wars was really much more of a fantasy film set in space. You are told as much with the first words of the movie with a line straight out of a fairy tale “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”. A classic story of good verses evil where the young hero who has to rescue the princess with the help of the trusty old knight. Much of the awe in Star Wars comes from the magic of the Force rather then the complexity of the technology thus making it more of a fantasy film then a Sci Fi film in my opinion.
To see the full range of the ‘Long Ago & Far Away’ figures chart a course for HERE.
