Scheduled for release on May 4th somewhen, "Dark Papa" is priced at US$400 apiece via flabslab.bigcartel.com, and is in an edition of 23pcs. Give new meaning to the Singlish term "*Wah Si Lin Lao Peh!"

LEGACY from Hsin Ho is available in BLACK and GREY, both sized (H)26 x (W)25.5cm x (B)33.5cm, and both in a limited edition of 20pcs each. Priced at SG$500 apiece, these Life size. 1:1 Scale sculptures are made of fiberglass and resin, and are *made to order*
"I have been a star wars fan since I was 8 years old, after all these years of waiting, I was really excited to watch T he Force Awakens movie on the big screen. When I first saw the melted Vader helmet, I was emotional. I had to sculpt it immediately, I don't know what is it about the melted helmet that it makes me feel serene, I guess we all have a little bit Vader inside of us." - shared Hsin Ho (Read more HERE).

Bandung, Indonesia-based sculptor Mirfak Prabowo's DEATH VADER and STORMEATER are based on two iconic characters in the Star Wars universe, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper (Seen above). Both are in a limited edition of 10pcs (made to order) and are priced at SG$200 apiece.

DEATH VADER (w/ Removable cranium)
Enamel paint on Resin sculpture
Sized: (H)13.5cm x (W)8.0cm x (B)7.0cm
"The idea was, what if not one single human exist in the Star Wars universe? That every single living thing would take the form of an alien. Based on that premise, I imagined Death Vader & Stormeater would be in a much more terrifying form. Even more so, the mask and armor suit weren't just a mere gear to cover their whole body, but actually is part of their bodies. The whole form is more organic because it's made of their own flesh and blood." - shared Mirfak Prabowo (Read more HERE)


STORMEATER (w/ Removable tusks)
Sized: (H)12.5 x (W)7.5 x (B)6.5cm

#DrawAWookie by Mario Gonzales for #StarWarsDay 2016


Submission for #DrawAWookie 2016 illustration from Mario Gonzales @ GST Graphics! Mario as well shares with us the origin and story of this character concept;
"The image is based on the idea that the Wookies are environmentalists and have started an organization called The Arbor Wookie Warrior Front to save the trees that are an important part of the Wookies lives on their home planet of Kashyyyk.

The Wookies are forest creatures and make their homes in the trees so making them environment activists seemed a natural fit and also the level of urgency concerning our own environment gave it a connection from fantasy to reality.

I imagined if the Wookies did have a danger to their trees/environment and were actually doing this that this image/poster would be a graphic for promotion to raise awareness and get other Wookies involved. Also the Empire I think enslaved the Wookies at one point in the Star Wars time line so I imagine the Empire would destroy or exploit Kashyyyks natural resources any way they could this would also probably spark an underground resistance by the Wookies to save the trees and also free themselves."

How exquisite is that?

This is the Gang Wars." (Facebook Events Page)
