It isn't hard to spot the World War 2 era imagery and inspirations in George Lucas' Star Wars franchise, but these awesome Jonathan Kuriscak figurines imagine what that connection might actually look like.
Featuring such twists as a Darth Vader miniature reminiscent of a Nazi officer from the heart of World War 2 and Storm Troopers literally dressed up like their historical namesakes, these Jonathan Kuriscak figures take the iconic space opera's most memorable villains and give them a dramatically new context.
As a history buff and a fan of Star Wars (minus the prequels), I've got to say that I definitely can appreciate Jonathan Kuriscak's ingenious fusion of two related, but very different genres. Well done sir, Obi Wan has taught you well.
