Any self-respecting Star Wars fan would love to see Darth Vader get his ass kicked, but one crafty little filmmaker decided to make it happen. A few times.

Using a few highly detailed action figures, stop-motion aficionado Patrick Boivin has put together some great little short films showing Darth Vader getting beaten up in a lot of fun and exciting ways. From Indiana Jones to Albert Einstein to Jack Nicholson’s creepy Shining psycho Jack Torrance, they’re all taking a pound of flesh from George Lucas’ most iconic baddie. Plus they all have their own unique styles.

Check out the shorts below, and try not to geek out when Indy pulls his Han Solo blaster. Classic.

So which one is your favorite?
