Terry Fan Crops Stars Wars Characters' Heads Onto Dapper Bodies

Star Wars was originally inspired by old adventure serials, so for Terry Fan to crop the heads off characters like Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Yoda and C-3PO and put them onto well-dressed bodies of vintage photos seems rather fitting. Each historical science fiction picture has that aged look with its off-white coloring, though the anachronistic inclusion of space age helmets, lightsabers and weird aliens gives away the illusion.

Terry Fan also hilariously christens each character with a new name. General Fett, Baron Von C-3PO, Sir Yoda and Victorian Vader look as though they may be precursors to George Lucas' creations.

Fans of Terry Fan's work already know how many times he's rendered Star Wars-related imagery, but this new series is one of the first times he's made something Star Wars-themed using actual photos.
