Star Wars Reimagined as a Western
Of the many alternative art reimaginings Star Wars has gone through, this Old West edition with characters based on the original ones is one of the best we’ve seen in quite some time.
Done by Sillof (Website), the custom made action figures resemble in look, name and background story the characters from the Star Wars saga, only do it with a Western twist, in a series called West Wars.

The story on this version of Leia is she’s the daughter of a very rich ranching families, and one of the few families standing up to the sheriff (more on him later).
