  2. From what I heard a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, the costumes that were created for Star Wars were actually based on the uniforms from WWII.

  3. Great concept & bad-ass looking. The empire always had Nazi overtones (Stormtroppers, uniform design), but the Allied/Allience figures are very well concieved. Bomber pilot Han (w/ the pistol that inspired his Blaster design)and R2D2 looking like a small WWI Renault tank are especialy cool. Tho R2D2 as a Sherman tank would look great too. Excellent work.
