Superstar customizer Sillof’s latest set of reimagined Star Wars action figures are out, and this time he’s looked back to the “retro sci-fi serials of the 40’s” that helped inspire Star Wars in the first place.
The fandom minute: Pay tribute to Sansweet

The StarWars.com folks need our help. They’re creating a retrospective of fan photos with Steve Sansweet. (You know you’ve got ’em.) It’s as simple as finding and/or scanning your pictures, uploading them to your (free) Flickr account, and adding them to the group Steve Sansweet & You.
Speaking of Steve… He featured a Jader creation as one of his Facebook picks of the week: Chris Cassidy’s Tickle Me Emperor.
Customs. Sillof’s latest action figure set reimagines Star Wars in the old west. Cowboys! Indians! Bartenders!
Fun on Hoth. The snow here in Detroit is melting as I type, but a few weeks back we had more than enough for Sweet Juniper’s Jim and his kids to create a snow wampa and taun taun.
Ask Metafilter. Why is Boba Fett so popular? I don’t know or particularly care, but I’ll hazard one guess: Fanboys.
Crafty corner. The Han in Carbonite throw pillow.
Sillof’s Return of the Jedi steampunk figures
The internet’s favorite action figure customizer is back with a steampunk Return of the Jedi.
Sillof steampunks Empire Strikes Back
The internet’s favorite action figure customizer is back with a steampunk take on Episode V, focusing on bounty hunters. Most impressive, particularly the strangely Hobbit-like Yoda. (via)
The fandom minute: Sillof, cake, disapointment
- Gizmodo interviews Sillof, the action figure customizer responsible for WWII and Steampunk themed Star Wars figures, among others.
- Another day, another Star Wars cake.
- Heckler Spray counts down their top six disappointing Star Wars characters. I find #1 more overrated than disappointing, but at least it’s not who you’d expect.
WWII Star Wars action figures
Sillof’s been busy – now there are World War II themed Star Wars figures. With all the WWII design influences in Star Wars to begin with, you’d think that this would cause some kind of weird fannish feedback loop, but so far, nicht.
Steampunk Star Wars action figures
A new take on old figures
The dioramas at Sillof’s Workshop may look familiar, but chances are you’ll see something new in his Star Wars Re-Vision figures. Also be sure to check out the McQuarrie, Dune, and Gaslight Justice League customs.
