Darth Vader by SteveArgyle Darth Vader by SteveArgyle
I don't want to disappoint you all with no jackass commentary on this piece. At the same time, this guy can strangle someone who displeases him from across galaxies. Now, I know he's just a floating spirit or whatever, and he's all redeemed and nice and junk. But I don't want to push my luck.

Vader may very well be my first icon of awesome. My parents tell me that Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw. And "forever did it dominate my destiny."

For Star Wars Galaxies. Copyright Lucas Arts and Sony Online Entertainment. Art directed by Roger Chamberlain and Derek Herring.

Chestplate by Hebrew washing machine scrapyard. I'm not even kidding. The first Vader costume was seriously cobbled together from junk, including a washing machine coin slot. The Hebrew words were the inspiration for "Sith Script" which was used for the following costumes. And the words became a prophecy, instead of, I guess "Linens and Delicates."

Absolutely perfect. Well done.

And you and I must be about the same age, Steve, since the original "Star Wars" movie was one of the first movies I saw and I was only five.
