Did you know that Star Wars was influenced by Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress (Kakushi toride no San Akunin)? Well, I didn’t and I apologize for not being a hardcore nerd to know about thus I will watch Star Wars Episode 3 about three times in a row. Anyways, an artist by the name of Sillof took this information and went ahead in nerdom to make figures on what if Akira Kurosawa made a samurai film based on Star Wars and all I can say is wow. Sillof even went on to do a fake write up of the film in which it goes on details to the story of Samurai Wars and even went on to choose who Kurosawa would have cast for the film. This is nothing but pure love of one’s obssesion and it’s worth checking out. Check out close look up of the figures after the jump and also head to Sillof’s website to read all the stuff.
