These look great. Took me a second to put two and two together but once I saw it, I couldn't un-see it. I really love Obi, and the torso on Luke is great too.

Totally skipped over my head the first time I browsed it. But that's really awesome. I especially like Han and Chewie.

These are pretty excellent. Great likenesses. My one complaint would have to be Obi-Wan. I guess the prequels messed this idea up a bit but his robes weren't supposed to be Jedi uniform robes, just simple desert homespun. Even compared to the prequel's jedi robes they're still pretty ragged. So the pristine uniform seems out of place to me...

yeah I completely get where you are coming from here.. I just wanted to use the Spectro goggles pith helmet combo and it went from there. My fiction logic was that having come out of retirement for one last hurrah he dusted off his old uniform and put it on "for the adventure" - but even then the colour of the jacket is really vibrant and the gold just sorta went with it.

I started putting together another Empire faction which is nearly done and I made a similar combo for The Emperors Royal Guard and it works a lot lot better for that. I probably should have given him a brick forge lightsaber but I took the pics at work (Shhhh) so didn't have my bits box.

Regardless I'm still pleased with the outcome. :)

These are so awesome! :D I love when people combine Star Wars and another Licensed theme or another popular theme :) The results are always epic.
