We Review: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

The Most Delicious Imperial Star Destroyers You Ever Did See

Artist Roland Tamayo combines Star Wars and food to create the most delicious Star Destroyers you ever did see.

Strange Spaceship Skeletons

If you liked Jason Freeny’s anatomical sculptures, chances are you’ll appreciate Josh Lane’s inner look at some pop culture vehicles.

The designer from Kansas City imagines what lies beneath the exteriors of fictional spaceships like the TARDIS with its bony chest and two hearts. Lane sketches similarly strange skeletal structures for Serenity, the NCC-1701, a Colonial Viper, and the Millennium Falcon. Have a look at them all after the jump.

Cute “Darth Vader and Son” Illustrations

Imagine what might have happened if Darth Vader hadn’t met the ignominious end that he did in the Star Wars films. Had the Sith lord not turned to the dark side, Luke Skywalker would still have the use of his right hand and more importantly, wouldn’t have lost a father.

Illustrated by comic book artist Jeffrey Brown, Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son is a series of one-panel cartoons that take a look at the lives that the Skywalkers would have led if Darth Vader played an active role in the growth of his son. Watch Luke as he plays backseat driver, hates on his sister, and gets into a fight with Greedo (who pushed first?). Have a look at some of the adorable illustrations from the children’s book after the jump.

Star Wars Yoga

Rescuing galaxies far, far away from the influence of the dark side can be torturous on the body. To keep their physical and mental states balanced, our heroes Princess Leia, 3PO, R2, Luke, and Yoda regularly practise yoga.

However, it’s not just the Rebel Alliance who are in search of galactic enlightenment. Even the Galactic Empire and the dark lord of the Sith himself try their hands at some of the asanas.

Have a look at some of their yoga poses after the jump.

Samurai Star Wars

Steve Bialik took us to feudal Japan in his set of Star Wars portraits, drawn as if they were woodblock prints. In a similar theme, US-based artist Clinton Felker draws some of the characters as high-stylized samurai warriors.

The Bark Side

When I got married many years ago, I had a grand idea for my bride’s entrance. I imagined a pack of dogs — some small, others big — all dressed up in bowties, and in unison barking out the tune to the “Here comes the bride” march. My wife thought it sweet, albeit a bit silly. It never happened, but that didn’t mean that it was a bad idea.

Roll on 2012, and Volkswagen have created a super cute commercial with 12 dogs barking out the famed Star Wars Imperial March theme. An AT-AT walker appears in the video too, in an costume that looks similar to the one worn by our favourite AT-AT dog, Bones Mello. Check out The Bark Side below.
