Q: The greatest Star Wars Knock-Off… EVER? A: Yes.

Q: The greatest Star Wars Knock-Off… EVER? A: Yes.

   This knock-off figure, Femme Stellarii by Suckadelic, is a beautiful example of a mashup. The wonderful packaging is Leia's head, on a Wilma Deering (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century) body, with legs from another source that I cannot identify yet.

It was pretty entertaining. Nothing too spectacular visually, about what you would expect from a film from the 1950’s. Overall I enjoyed it, and found it [...]
