This Incredible Star Wars Mural Is Loaded With Everything From Toys To Yul Brynner

This crazy cool mural is the work of artist Robert Burden who created it as a tribute to the classic Kenner toys. The images represent both action figures and vehicles from the vintage toy collection (click to enlarge).

It took him 2,000 hours and 18 months to create the 15′ x 8′ mural as an oil painting. There are a few symbolic images that are a nod to the influences that helped create Star Wars (like Yul Brynner in The Magnificent Seven) as well as some newer toys, but it’s mostly old-school.

You’ll be able to see it live at Star Wars Celebration next month and even pick up a 36″ x 24″ print from Burden’s online store. If you’ve got deep pockets and a lot of wall space, then buy the original for $200,000.
