Star Wars was partially inspired by the 1958 film The Hidden Fortress by Akira Kurosawa and these custom action figures by Sillof (the genius behind the Steampunk Star Wars figures, the WWII Star Wars, Victorian Justice League, Marvel Pulp Noir, etc.) are a fitting tribute to that fact.
Of all the figures Sillof has done, these are perhaps his best effort. There’s nothing I don’t love about them. [via]
