POWER OF THE DARK SIDE Print by Andy Fairhurst x Bottleneck Gallery Drops March 28th


Join the Dark Side with U.K.-based Andy Fairhurst’s “POWER OF THE DARK SIDE” print releasing Tuesday March 28th @ 12pm eastern via bottleneckgallery.com! Produced by Bottleneck Gallery, the “Power of the Dark Side” fine art giclee is sized 16 x 20 inches, in a hand-numbered edition of 200, each priced at US$50.00.


BOTTLENECK GALLERY PRESS: ”Rouge One: A Star Wars Story is a film filled with memorable scenes. Today, Andy Fairhurst brings us the most brutal of those scenes with his depiction of Darth Vader dispatching an entire hallway full of rebels in ruthless fashion. Andy’s take on Darth Vader’s show-stealing scene at the end of Rogue One is a brilliant depiction of the classic villain. Vader’s presence in the print is devastating, as he decimates the Rebel soldiers, and shows just how relevant and iconic he truly is, even forty years after his first appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV.”

“k-4SLO Security Droid” Custom by Mike Slobot


Mike Slobot shares with us snaps and word that his latest custom robot is currently available for purchase online. The “k-4SLO Security Droid is customised from a ”K-2SO” collectible from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, and stands about 20″ tall. It features a glow in the dark eye, custom painted lime green and silver body, and glow in the dark wires.

The k-4SLO Security Droid Story: "Truth be told, I’ve always wanted a protocol droid to help out in the Slobot factory, but we’ve just never taken the plunge. A few weeks ago, one of these KX-Series Security Droids went Rogue and stumbled into the Slobot factory looking for repairs. Like K-2SO from Star Wars Rogue One, he is a re-programmed Imperial Droid. In need of repair and tired of looking like he still worked for the Empire, the newly rebranded K-4SLO got an upgraded processor pack, a fresh lime green paint job and some new wiring. Now the factory has the best parts of a protocol droid and a protector droid. No word yet on whether he speaks Bocce."

In lieu of a “life-sized” ride, we can relive our glorious memories of the galactic adventure via desktop/toy-display collectibles!

The “coin op machines” are all ridden by a faceless female costumer/cosplayer character created Fools Paradise, named “Keiko”, who adorn enlarged stylized helmets, gloves and boots, and very little else.
