Re-creating Classic Star Wars Scenes With Star Wars Toys

Playing with my Star Wars toys are some of my happiest memories as a child.

The number of adventures I had beside the creek in my backyard with my X-Wing and “Farmboy Luke Skywalker” would have impressed the creator himself, George Lucas. Those times are gone, and if I do happen to purchase a Star Wars toy today, it is either a gift to my fangirl daughters or it is relegated to a shelf in my “NERD CAVE” where it will only see a room filled with nostalgia while collecting dust. Don’t throw out those old action figures! There is a way to keep those toys relevant in a creative way.

Photographer, Matthew Cohen, has taken these simple toys and re-created some classic Star Wars scenes in creative ways. Here is a small sample of some of my favorites from his creations.
