Star Wars Customs Of The Week: "Graffiti Wars" By Sillof

Bespin refugee - May 30, 2016

This week's Star Wars customs are "Graffiti Wars" by Sillof, a series of figures based on the characters/character types from American Graffiti and Star Wars.

"...I was struck by all of the similarities between Star Wars and American Graffiti, George Lucas’ earlier film. An average kid who wants to leave home, the cool loner with the fast car, even the final drag race seemed strangely reminiscent of the trench run. The line is meant to be a kind of combination of films in or about the youth culture of the late 50’s and early 60’s Most notably American Graffiti with some elements of Rebel without a cause, the Wild One, and the biker exploitation films that attempted to scare the youth away from motorcycle gangs.


The line is set in 1962 in the dry, desert town to Tucson (two suns…get it?) For the town’s teenage residents it is like most other middle sized towns of the era, somewhat boring with not much do except cruise around hoping for something to break the doldrums.
