Pics: Zombie Darth Vader

Darth Vader already represents a rather strange watershed confluence of speculative fiction concepts, being an evil cyborg samurai starfighter pilot technomage, but sculptor Michael Barrera proves you can add one more geek-niche adjective to the list and get something even cooler by invoking Fan Fiction Rule #1: "No matter who cool a character already is, that character can only get cooler if he is a zombie."

Thus, I give you Zombie Darth Vader. The first person to turn this design into a viable Halloween costume gets 10,000 Geek points. Same goes for Barrera's other undead Star Wars design, Zombie Slave Leia. Heh, metal bikini-clad zombie hotness.

O.O!! thinking on what are zombies, I guess even C-3PO would kick that zombie's ass easily, with a gun of course. Would be interesting if these zombie Darth Vader have some characteristics, of course it matches perfectly with the Dark Side of the Force (Fear, Anger, Hate and Suffering) but just going around munching brains isn't enough.
