The Star Wars (1955)

Recently I've been poking at a fun mash-up side project.

So it's well documented that George Lucas had originally wanted to recreate Flash Gordon, but couldn't obtain the rights and so made Star Wars instead. My project imagines that Star Wars was actually a vintage show, which would have aired sometime in the 50s alongside Flash Gordon, and that it was this show that Lucas obtained the rights to and rebooted in 1977.

Here are a few of the props I've designed so far...

The Falcon

Star Destroyer

A Stormtrooper Bucket

and finally, R2-D2


  1. That R2 is worth building. I would love to see it roaming around with the others out there.

  2. thanks! someone on the RPF said the same thing.
