Star Wars themed floats at the Aomori Nebuta Festival, Japan

The Aomori Nebuta Festival is one of Japan’s most colourful festivals as paper floats are paraded through the city of Aomori by enthusiastic locals. The floats are mostly inspired by Japanese folklore and regional myths but recently modern ‘pop culture’ style floats have joined the mix. This year the festivals organisers were approached by the mighty Disney Corporation / Lucasfilm Ltd. and a series of Star Wars inspired floats, built to promote the release of The Force Awakens, were designed and created.

Despite not being included in the parade that takes place through the towns centre, the floats have attracted much attention from Star Wars fans on social media and the 30,000+ festival visitors alike. In typical Disney style the floats were unveiled during the opening ceremony on the eve of the festival with Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and R2-D2 making guest appearances and meeting the towns Major on the red carpet.

Star Wars Nebuta are on display at the Aomori Nebuta Festival August 2 -7,  Nebuta House Wa Rasse in Aomori City, Japan.

Just when you find something good, the company blinks out of existence.

In memory of these amazing custom Nike trainers by Daniel Reese, and the now defunct Brass Monki, here are several of the best designs to drool over (courtesy of Geek Tyrant).

Scratch built Star Wars R2-Unit

“This R2 builder has a good motivator!”

R2-Unit made by Eric Solvesky for his son as a super Star Wars Christmas present. Not a kit, made from steel and imagination juice. The droid bears a striking resemblance to the famous R2-D2 but, due to a cease and desist letter we received from Mickey Mouse, we probably shouldn’t mention it. “Help me Obi-Wan, I’m an addict!” Great work!
