I love the work of Finnish artist Vesa Lehtimäki aka Avanaut, a brilliant illustrator and photographer who likes to take pictures of his kids' toys in his spare time. Check out these series of Star Wars toys set in the real world. Some of them look so real that you may think he actually build 1:1 reproductions of the spaceships. Flying ones.

This is the best I could do as a kid. Took this photo sometime in the 1990s after playing with my hand-me-down Star Wars toys. Still kicking myself that I sold them to buy a new computer when I was barely a teenager.
