Despite all the Joseph Campbell influences, most of Star Wars' imagery seems pretty dystopic to me. And people either love or hate SF3D and/or Maschinen Krieger ZbV 3000 concepts.

I'm in the former category. So, I bring you a pair of Ma.K.-themed Stormtrooper figures by Kunho Noh.

Picked up a Bobba Fett kit from Bandai from all places a Meijer big box store. We'll see what happens.........

Also, for apophenia, where there's a will, there's relatives!  ;) ;D

Also, try some stuff from https://industriamechanika.com/shop/ especially Ian McQue. Maybe not straight up PA but definitely some good ideas. I did a quick check at their website and it said they are no longer doing resin kits but going to home 3D printing. Wave of the future I think.

There has to be something using this:

All hail the God of Frustration!!!

You can't outrun Death forever.
But you can make the Bastard work for it.

Before the Prius there was the Pinto.

Think about that.

The Florida one is well, almost a requirement for Floriduh.

How does the Portland car change lanes? How would it even pull over? Or even come to a stop in less than a quarter of a mile?

The person sitting rigidly upright in the driver's seat of the SUV is probably in a perpetual
state of anxiety.
