Star Wars Steampunk Vs. Steam Trek

So perhaps Dr. Steel isn’t the world dominating horse you wish to back. Maybe you want to subvert your will to a stronger, more type A side.

And don’t give me any baloney about being your own free thinker. Look at the world. Look at you. Look back at the world. Look at you. Not doing so good is it? You’ve failed. Time to pick a side for world domination and get to it.

Dr. Steel is a newcomer. Maybe you’re looking for something more classic. The Emperial Empire! (steampunk style of course. This blog isn’t called The New Wave Opera)You simply cannot get more classic.

Finally you can help put an end to the utter chaos that threatens to envelope the world. Bring order to the planet. Don’t be a pussy.

The hard core approach. Hard to argue with it’s potency. Otherwsie what kind of future can there be?  Some nerdy “hard science” utopian vision? Well, if that’s you’re thing, perhaps you want to pull for the Federation.

Whichever side you pick, do it soon. The news is really bumming me out.

Steampunk Action Figures

Let’s talk design for a moment.

As far the show goes, the set and costume design is not in my area of expertise, and i will be leaving it to the professionals. I hope to give a juicy story and score for them and the director to run with, and then leave them to it. I’ll have done my design work in the instrumentation.

Never the less, the design and aesthetic of steampunk is a crucial part of its allure. Today i thought we’d have some fun and look at some well known pop culture characters re imagined in a steampunk design.

All of today’s figures are featured from  Sillof’s Workshop. This guy makes wonderful, wonderful designs and figures and i highly recommend checking his site out.

First: Star Wars

Star Wars Steampunk

Next up we have DC’s Justice League.

Steampunk Justice League

I swear, this collection give me a nerdgasm.

Now for the Marvel superheroes.

Steampunk Avengers

There’s plenty more stuff to gape at over at Sillof’s Workshop, including character lines set in the 1940s,  Samurai Star Wars,  Terry Gilliam films, and so forth. Mr. Sillof,  (note: not his real name, but it’s all i have to work with) i salute you and perhaps i shall name one of the characters in the opera after you.
