For a saga that spanned galaxies, it seems that Star Wars' pivotal moments revolved around three people trying to kick each other's asses: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and his son, Luke. How better to frame those bouts than as classic boxing posters?

Which is exactly what British design outfit Old Red Jalopy has done. And, really, what makes a thing like this work is the details: bits like the pay-per-view coming from the Empire Box Office, additional bouts which include "All-Terrain Scout Walkers vs. Logs" and the "Hooha on the Death Star" feature an "out of retirement" Obi-Wan Kenobi.

I'd buy one of these if I could, but methinks Lucasfilm's licensing overlords would have something to say about that.
