We are almost all familiar with the look of the original cast of the Star Wars films, but artist Bjorn Hurri has designed a new look for them all, in that ever growing 'steampunk' fashion.

Here we have that little lovable R2 unit, looking like he's from a lot longer than a long time ago. Below is the villainous Darth Vader, definitely looking the part of a steampunk villain, either that or a Space Marine.

Other images include Luke, Leia, Han, C3PO, Chewbacca, Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett, Yoda, a Jawa and a Stormtrooper and can all be found on his website, located here.

I think this work is truly magnificent, it still manages to capture the traditional look and feel of the characters whilst adding some new features to keep them looking fresh. I'd even love to see a movie or TV show with the characters and world in this style... Not overly confident with those 'steam sabers' though. They could go either way.
