Been awhile, right? Well, no we haven’t given up on Atomic Moo, but life is getting a little better and making semi-regular posts should become a thing again. I hope.
Anyways, let’s kick things off (again) with some cool geeky fun provided by Nukazooka on the youtube. Now, I’m pretty sure a dark lord of the Sith could kick the living hell out of a “space ranger” in a manner of seconds, if that were a thing, but the video is still a lot of fun to watch. Despite Disney ruining both Pixar and Star Wars. Yeah, Rogue One sucked and I still hate Disney for every ounce of non-creative garbage they push on a non-thinking public. Sorry, I’ve also been spending time on political blogs, and I’m pretty sure there is a legit tie between the Force Awakens and the Trump attack on American government. But totally enjoy the video!!!
04/22/2015 / Trog / Comments Off on Three Beautiful Star Wars Posters from Andy Fairhurst
Via Deviant Art: Hello, El Moochadores and check out the above, and wonderful, Star Wars poster art from UK artist Andy Fairhurst. According to Fairhurst’s Deviant art page the posters are “officially licensed limited edition prints” for Bottleneck Art Gallery and Acme Archives and they’re so good that you kind of just feel the magic of the force when looking at these. Keen.
Anyways, according to the bottleneck page, the posters are currently sold out, but I did post a few more samples of Fairhurst’s work below, so that you can all enjoy the talent in a digital way.
Good morning El Moochadores! Did you ever eat a bunch of pizza, and then fart yourself awake all night? No. Mean neither. Anyways, on this Morning Moo we got some amazing creative projects.

Via… some geek-site… Sorry, I forgot to write down who posted this first. heh. Anyways! Check out the Star Wars paper toys of Momot! Now, I would tell you more about Momot, but his site is in all Korean. I don’t read Korean. Hell, I can barely read and write English, and it’s my only language; However this is really great work and Momot has several other great Paper craft works on his website (link above) and on his Behance page.
Hey El Moochadors, here’s a super quick post before I run out the door for work on something cool I came across this morning (via… shit I lost the link…). It’s a Star Wars Steampunk fan film based on Boba Fett. Anyhow, check it out below, or visit their channel here. Crap, I better get out the door or I’m not going to have time for a bear claw. Later!
Hey El Moochadors, just a quick post this morning of some awesome crossover geek-art by UK illustrator Robert Shane. That Iron Trooper looks pretty kick-ass, and I’m digging how he worked the Imperial symbol into that power generator… chest thing… What the hell is that thing called??? Check out the other pieces he’s done below, and also check out his gallery for more awesome geek-art.
Via Geeks are Sexy: Good morning El Moochadores! The title of this post kind of says it all, but I really hope you enjoy watching The Unipiper work his magic. I think we should all strive to be even just half this awesome every day.
05/21/2013 / Trog / Comments Off on Darth Vader Cloth Doll… with Removable Helmet!!!
We all love Darth Vader (well… maybe not Captain Needa), but I think Deviant artist, Rono22 (aka: Marta), might love the big guy a little more. After all she made a really, freaking, amazing Darth Vader cloth doll, with a removable helmet. Check out what she had to say about making the doll on her Deviant page;
Here’s my opus magnum, my most favourite character of all the times, Darth Vader. One month of work, sometimes up to 8 hours a day. Roughly 40cm tall, random fabrics, felt, faux leather, ballpen parts etc. No wire frame. Hand sewn. Based the look mostly on “The Return of The Jedi”, the costume references found on 501st website and Sideshow’s Darth Vader bust. Not to mention I made some serious research on Sebastian Shaw (the man who played Anakin in the Original Trilogy)
You might say he’s a product of a little bet with my mum (or a challenge rather). Back in the day when I was 10 or so I started to make Star Wars dolls. When I was, like, 18, I bought a Darth Vader plush. And my mum was all like “pfff, he looks lame, even you could do it better!” And I was like yeah, how about no—- wait- you are right! I can make it better!
And I did! (although, 3 years later)
Good job Rono22! My only problem with it is calling it a doll. I’m a boy and that’s a Darth Vader. Boys don’t want to play with Darth Vader “dolls.” So, great work on that cloth replica of a Sith Lord! It’s very much a CLOTH REPLICA I’d want in my collection of ACTION FIGURES and REPLICAS. Not dolls.
Good evening El Moochadores! Okay, I didn’t post all 66 images here. Sorry, but I’m very tired, and I want to go to bed soon. However, I did post a few sample images (mostly of Carrie Fisher, she was just so damn cute!!!) and if you want to see the rest please go visit Joinyouinthesun’s page on IMGUR. Anywhat, check out a few of the images below. Some of the 66 in the album are very popular, but there were many in there that I had never seen. Like the Wampa attacking the Snowtrooper. Give them a look at let us know which pictures you liked the most!
Well, golly! I never thought of it that way! Check out Graham Putnam’s funny mockumentary that digs deep into the “conspiracy” surrounding the destruction of the Death Star and the loss of thousand Imperial soldiers lives!
