The 'Star Wars' 'Space Invaders' plaque was created by Chris McVeigh and now hangs proudly on his wall. The patient designer worked hard to find the mini figures necessary to recreate the popular arcade game with a 'Star Wars' theme.

Obviously detailed-oriented, McVeigh added little red bullets and other small men to represent lives left. The 'Star Wars' 'Space Invaders' plaque is brilliantly geeky.

References that pay homage to items and products in the past are highly appealing to those who desire a sense of nostalgia.
