Custom action figures mix 'Star Wars' with Russ Meyer

Comic actor Patton Oswalt commissioned an action figure series from the legendary Sillof. The result is "Faster, Empire! Strike! Strike!"

Sillof is rather famous for his custom action figures. In the past, he's done steampunk Star Wars, noir Star Wars, Wild West Star Wars, and many more.

His latest collection is a commissioned custom range for comedian and actor Patton Oswalt. Called "Faster, Empire! Strike! Strike!" it combines "Star Wars" with Russ Meyer's cult exploitation film "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!"

With gender-reversed characters like Darla Vade (pictured below) and R2-D2 represented as a drinks trolley (the Rest/Relaxation Drinks Dispenser), it's a masterpiece of work, even by Sillof's standards.

You can see the full range here and then read Oswalt's essay on the figures here. No, sadly, they're not available to buy.
