Because the magical blue cat can make even the weirdest scenarios a reality.

Japanese model maker @momiboku recently caught the attention of Twitter users online with his unusual take on two of the Hollywood movie world’s most best-known characters. It all started with a couple of ordinary plastic model sets, designed to be used to recreate the famous Star Wars droids.

Instead of coming to life in their usual form, though, these characters were destined to cross over with the magical world of Japanese manga. After undergoing a special treatment which strips the parts of the gold-coloured gilding, C-3PO is ready for a new coat of colours to transform him into Doraemon’s friend Nobi Nobita, complete with his distinctive orange shirt and round glasses.

▼ Imagine what C-3PO would have to say about this situation!

R2-D2’s domed head makes a perfect canvas for the round-headed blue cat Doraemon. The animated character’s distinctive magic pouch, from which he can pull all types of gadgets and gizmos, is crafted from a tiny piece of cardboard and glued to the model’s mid-section.

The finished product makes it look like Doraemon and Nobi have stepped through their Anywhere Door and into another dimension, starting a new adventure as BFFs from another galaxy.


Instead of the word “Doraemon”, the well-known font from the Doraemon series is used to spell out the words “Star Wars”, completing the unique transformation.

If you’d like to check out the unusual models in person, they’re currently on display as part of a contest being held at the Yellow Submarine hobby store in Chiba City.
