The Internet Loves Star Wars More Than You Do

Unless you actually live in a galaxy far, far away, you’re probably aware that “The Force Awakens” is set to smash just about every box office record there is when it opens this week. We’ve waited ten long years for this latest Star Wars installment, and expectations have reached Death Star proportions. So we thought we’d ease the tension — and fan your fanboy or -girl flames — with a baker’s dozenof the best Star Wars themed art the internet has to offer. Because as much as you love Star Wars, the internet loves it more.

Even R2-D2 has trouble parking

A lot of Star Wars figurines never leave the box theyshipped in, and, eventually, become worth an obscene amount of money. How boring. Daniel Picard’s collectibles will never reach their full monetary potential, but, as evidenced by his photographs, they are living their lives. Not unlike the rest of us.

9.Pop Art

If only this Han Solo Pop Tartwere edible, it would be perfect.

10.Victorian Wars

Chancellor Chewman, Baron von Three PO, and Lord Vadersworthlook right at home in the 19th century.
