What would it look like if an Imperial TIE Fighter got into an accident on the highway and got stuck on the side of the road? One fan made such a video, which is shown from the perspective of someone driving past. We see one wing of the TIE Fighter in flames, while the bulk of the Star Wars spaceship is further up the snow-covered highway, with two Stormtroopers sitting alongside awaiting roadside assistance.
First there were those low-quality images of what was supposedly the Batmobile on the set photos of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which director Zack Snyder quickly debunked by releasing the first official full image of The Caped Crusader’s primary vehicle. Then there was also the recent rumor that the Batmobile was stolen from the Detroit film set. To combat that rumor, Snyder used his on-going Star Wars mash-up joke to clear up the situation — the director posted a photo to Twitter of a Stormtrooper (the famed Star Wars Imperial soldiers) being put into a GCPD squad car by the Gotham City cops, with the Batmobile nearby. Snyder captioned the photo “Case closed.”

I love action figures; always have, always will. As a child, all I wanted to receive as gifts were action figures — many of which were Star Wars related. I don’t collect toys like I used to, but every once in awhile my wife will surprise me with one from my Amazon wish list.
When I first stumbled across Stefan Le Du‘s Stormtroopers 365 photography about two years ago, the fond memories of my childhood returned — playing with Star Wars figures in my bedroom and recreating the “Battle of Hoth” or the fight over The Sarlaac. Though those days are long gone, my appreciation and admiration for those figures returns every time I see Le Du’s creatively whimsical Star Wars related photos.
