When I purchased this set of vintage Japanese karuta at Tokyo's SuperFest convention this Sunday, I heard the voices of millions of copyright attorneys crying out in terror... then suddenly silenced. These trading cards appear to be based on some Seventies science-fiction film that I can't quite place. Let's take a closer look.
A bleary-eyed C-3PO, a disturbingly angelic Darth Vader, and Daitarn 3, together at last. I can only assume that pink Deathstar is where the Galactic Sucklord resides.
Look who just jacked Captain Harlock's personal spaceship! This is even better than the "wookie porn" scene in the Holiday Special.
Speaking of which, here C3P0 trades his usual codpiece for a metal miniskirt and a new lifestyle... Apparently burning out his little buddy's visual sensors in the process.
Unlikely allies forge an alliance based on a shared desire: running C-3P0 down like a dog.
Remember that scene where C-3P0 snuck up and pushed Carrie Fisher off a cliff?
Pulling on the rubber gloves to rid the world of those damned Micronauts once and for all.
