Star Wars has inspired a universe of fan art, but it's been ages since we've seen anything as cool as artist Bwana Spoons' paintings of every classic Star Wars action figure from 1977 to 1985. Check them out!

According to the official Spoonful of Star Wars site:

This special exhibition of over 100 original paintings by artist Bwana Spoons features portraits of vintage Star Wars™ action figures done in the artist's signature style. Bright colors, rainbows, humor and fart jokes come though in what Bwana calls, "an awesome dream project." Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys commissioned Bwana Spoons to reinterpret each vintage Kenner Star Wars™ action figure from the original line 1977-1985.

The show will be on display for one day only at DesignerCon, an art and design convention that smashes together collectible toys and designer apparel with urban, underground and pop art. For more information on DesignerCon visit www.designercon.com.

Spoons has been posting the images of each action figure painting over at his own site. Here are some of our favorites, and check out the rest at the link. [via StarWars.com.]
