Japanese Figure Photographers Explore The Misadventures of "Star Wars" Dark Side

The lives, loves and battles of Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Darth Ranko and that new, mopey rage-aholic Kylo Ren

The Dark Side is strong on Japanese social media. The lives, loves and battles of Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Darth Ranko and that new, mopey rage-aholic Kylo Ren have been celebrated in a series of photographs, many using their S.H. Figuarts surrogates from Bandai. 












Chica Umino (Honey and Clover, March Comes In Like a Lion) especially liked this one


Muco, the real shiba inu guarding a glass shop in Akita prefecture who inspired Takayuki Mizushina's Lovely Muuuuuuuco! manga, which inspired last season's anime, also did a bit of cosplay


Also a particularly popular bit of image manipulation


And a fun New Year's mash-up
