Darth Vader is just one of those characters that captures minds. Despite the back story (ruined by George Lucas in the Star Wars prequel’s), Darth Vader still is an impressive figure.
But, what if he was re-designed by arts of today? What would Vader look like?
Artists created brand new images for the iconic figure based solely on Lucas‘ original description in the script for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
INTERIOR: REBEL BLOCKADE RUNNER – MAIN HALLWAY. The awesome, seven-foot-tall Dark Lord of the Sith makes his way into the blinding light of the main passageway. This is Darth Vader, right hand of the Emperor. His face is obscured by his flowing black robes and grotesque breath mask, which stands out next to the fascist white armored suits of the Imperial stormtroopers. Everyone instinctively backs away from the imposing warrior and a deathly quiet sweeps through the Rebel troops. Several of the Rebel troops break and run in a frenzied panic.
Check out the amazing work below the jump! They are, to steal a line from Lord Vader, “most impressive.”
