C-3PO Samurai???

Japanese Samurai C-3PO

Taken from Samurai Wars “Chiapo” — Samurai Wars is a line of custom figures that imagines what a Star Wars movie directed by Akira Kurosawa would look like. George Lucas has said what a fan he is a Kurosawa and also the influence that Kurosawa’s “The Hidden Fortress” had on Star Wars. At the bottom of the page is a fake write up that I did for a convention that claims this is a real movie.

Chipao / C-3PO

For 3PO I went with a tall and lean body type. I used various browns and yellows for his golden color. I tried to capture 3PO’s stuffy demeanor with the arm pose. The golden disc is representative of 3PO’s stomach disc, and the black sash would be his exposed wires.

I really enjoyed this and thought I would share it with the rest of the C-3PO fan base… see the rest of the characters here: http://linkive.com/home/browser/MTU5Njk5/Comedy/How%20Akira%20Kurosawa%27s%20Star%20Wars%20characters%20would%20have%20looked
