Sillof's Patton Oswalt-Commissioned Road Wars

Back in April we saw a new line of action figures from artist and custom toy maker/designer Sillof that was commissioned by geek god Patton Oswalt. That line was titled Faster, Empire! Strike!

One of Sillof’s greatest inspirations is the Star Wars universe, creating multiple lines of action figures that fuse popular characters from George Lucas’s creation with different styles and genres like steampunk or westerns or fantasy. So what would be the inspiration for this new line of Patton Oswalt-inspired Star Wars action figures?
