Toys You Can’t Have

Recognize the cast of characters at the right? Seem vaguely familiar? They should. These custom-made action figures by mad genius creator Sillof re-imagine what Star Wars would have looked like had it been a samurai film directed by Akira Kurosawa. (Which it kinda was: Lucas borrowed a lot from Kurosawa’s 1958 film The Hidden Fortress.) The details on these figures are amazing. Check out Sillof’s Samurai Wars page for amazing close-ups of each figure. Dig through Sillof’s other pages for a set of steampunk Star Wars characters, a bunch of Dune figures and an incredible collection called “Gaslight Justice League.”
