More Machine Now Than Man

One thing I’ve always loved about the models of the Original Trilogy is the extraordinary amount of kitbashed detail that went into making each of them, from the exposed wires covering the hull of the Millennium Falcon to the various model tank bits on the X-wing. It contributed to the beautifully weathered look of the film’s ships as a whole, evoking thoughts of Deshevov, Steampunk, and other facets of the heavily mechanical theme.

It is therefore only natural that I would invite you to take note of this mecha interpretation of the Dark Lord of the Sith by jean-mat. It appears that he’s made extensive modifications to a Technic Darth Vader using Bionicle and various other parts, retaining only trace elements of the original framework.
