Steampunk is one of those things that you actually need to SEE to appreciate.
Me, I never really understood the concept of re-tooling something to what it could have looked like in the 19th century when steam was used,but that is what steampunk is, along with a bit of science fiction thrown in for good measure.
Then I played the game Bioshock, and since then I appreciate it.
But this, these designs of Star Wars characters re-imagined into steampunk characters by Bjorn Hurri located below the jump are simply amazing. Even when his art is still a work in progress, as some are below, they still leap off the page.
Which is your favorite? Mine would have to be Leia (who looks smoking hot) and the Stormtrooper (who just looks badass!).
