Samurai Wars

Yep. More Star Wars. Deal with it.
Custom action figures can be a mixed bag, but these toys are decidedly awesome. The amount of thought that went into these designs is impressive and makes me wish Hasbro would branch out into new areas with the Star Wars line.

Here's a description from the website:

Samurai Wars is a line of custom figures that imagines what a Star Wars movie directed by Akira Kurosawa would look like.  George Lucas has said publically what a fan he is a Kurosawas and also the influence that Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress"  had on Star Wars.   At the bottom of the page is a fake write up that I did for a convention that claims this is a real movie.

The website has closer looks at each figure, as well as a ninja "Boba Fett" design.
