Star Wars recreated

At various times during these first four months of online groanin', I have written about my love of Star Wars.

I was three years old when Return of the Jedi was released, and spent my formative years with thoughts of Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Princess Leia and Han Solo taking up more space in my head than was probably healthy or useful.

And, to be honest, that love of the films has never really gone away.

Which is why I am delighted to present to you, dear readers, one of the most faithful recreations of the original motion picture I've ever seen.

That was something I really enjoyed. Imagine how long it took to make that little feature!

One of the first dreams I ever remember having, when I was about three, was of being trapped in a high-rise apartment in Coney Island (Brooklyn), hiding behind a love seat, and Imperial Walkers marching through blizzard weather (much like Hoth) coming to get us.

Damn AT-ATs. They were the size of skyscrapers!
