Darth Vader vs Buzz Lightyear

We’ve seen plenty of videos of various fictional characters going head-to-head in a fight to see who would emerge the victor. But I’m not sure there’s ever been one as ridiculous as this one. Thankfully, it’s also super entertaining.

In the video, we get to see what might happen if legendary Star Wars villain Darth Vader crossed paths with a human-sized, more realistic, weaponized Buzz Lightyear from Pixar’s Toy Story.

You can find out how the battle plays out in the video below.

May The 4th: When The 1976 Comic-Con Teased The First ‘Star Wars’

Star Wars Mark Hamill

Since today, May the 4th, marks the annual celebration of that film in the galaxy far, far away known to the billions of generations as Star Wars, I thought it would be fun to go back to 1976, the year right before the film was released when filming was still underway and a generation of science-fiction fans were being teased with elements and characters from the upcoming space opera, most notably at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

The SDCC that everyone knows today circa 2016 was nothing like what it was four decades ago. There was no social media; there was no hint of that kind of anticipatory buzz that comes with each upcoming Con as the New Year bell tolls; cosplay was a term that was non-existent in those days, as well as even trying to get licensed or unlicensed for that matter favorite character paraphernalia to dress up in. You wanted a Spidey mask to wear? You best ask your mom to ask your grandmother to knit one out of itchy yarn. The things that Comic-Con goers take and see as gospel in today’s climate was light years away, unheard of, in 1976.

‘Star Wars’ Villain Darth Vader Is The Ultimate Grinch In “Darth Santa” Christmas Short

Darth Vader Star Wars Christmas Short "Darth Santa"

A new short has been released titled Darth Santa that brings together Christmas and the Star Wars universe. And no, it has nothing to do with the infamous holiday special.

The short features everyone’s favorite Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader taking over the job of Santa Claus, and not doing a very good job of it at all. In fact, Vader is a real grinch, playing pranks and generally wreaking havoc wherever he goes. It’s basically The Nightmare Before Christmas if Vader took the place of Jack Skellington, though intentional. The music used is even an impressive fusion of Star Wars music and Christmas music, including the Grinch’s song from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Renaissance Heroes and Villains Cosplay Shoot Header

Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?

Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.

You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.

Darth Vader in Ukraine

The Ukrainian Internet Party is pushing for reform in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and who better than the Dark Lord of The Sith, Darth Vader, from Star Wars to get things done!

The former Jedi and evil henchmen for the Galactic Empire (or at least someone dressed like him) is running in the upcoming parliamentary elections there as a legitimate candidate. Vader even has an ad campaign making rounds on the internet this week featuring beautiful fields (not unlike Naboo), a horse, and even a traditional Russian instrument being played by Lord Vader to a familiar stirring tune.

Check out the ad campaign videos here below.
