Recently, we brought you news of the amazing Star Wars Movie Realisation Series of figurines, which have perfectly transformed Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Stormtroopers into awesome-looking samurai warriors.

But if you’re itching for a Japanese-styled Star Wars character of your own, you might want to do what this clever artist did and simply make one yourself. All you’ll need is a plain figure, some coloured pens and a little—make that a lot—of talent and patience.

Twitter user @yononaka_poison has spent several days inking up her figurine, updating her progress with photos on Twitter. This Stormtrooper must seriously be chuffed to have been paired with such a talented owner.

The astounding details even include tiny, falling sakura cherry blossom petals. The sakura was often linked to the world of samurai, due to the fact that the flowers bloom for such a short time and then fall at the height of their beauty, much like the short life and death of the warrior.

▼ An intricate demon with a striking resemblance to one of the Star Wars cast appears on one thigh while a carp, a symbol of strength, appears on the other.

▼ His latest ink is a Death Star on his left shoulder.

Now this is one Stormtrooper we’d like to see in action! In fact, all these Japanese-themed Star Wars characters need to come together in an animated or live-action film. Pet project anyone? Be sure to send your movies our way!
