I mean that's what you call some serous vintage Star Wars info ! " Breathes through he's opening of he's chest " and "he's brain is on the hump of he's neck"! Love it !

Wasn’t sure what I was looking at here. Hammerhead or an exotic looking artists’s sculpture :wink:

JabbaWookie u gotta a dirty mind on u !
But I like yeh thinking :lol:
Can't ever look that cup again without that thought in mind !

So next up is the scene from the Star Wars film where they plan to destroy the Death Star!
Text reads as follows :-
"General Dodonna explains to the Rebels Strategy to Destroy the Death Star..."
One of my least favourites here but it's still an important scene from the film and see why it was chosen.
Any Dodonna focus collectors out there???? :lol:
Anyways enjoy

I quite like the General Dodonna Dixie Cup. The Death Star trench run graphics remind me of Tron. Cheers for sharing Ricky.

Next up is Han Solo s "Millennium Falcon"......Everyones favourite ship in the galaxy !
Nice artwork of course and the bonus of having the words "STAR WARS" across it .
A small picture of Han Solo is also presence in the bottom corner as shown .
Also I've included a 2nd cup here which also has the Millennium Falcon but this time no Star Wars wording but a small picture of Luke Skywalker .
Enjoy

Love the Falcon cup. The simple striking symbolism of the red yellow and orange blocks of colour to indicate speed. Awesome.
