Darth Vader is now running for Ukraine presidency, thanks to the Ukrainian Internet Party (UIP) that now backs a guy dressed as the Sith Lord to be their official candidate for the May 25 presidential elections. In a statement issued by the party, Vadar is quoted as saying: ‘I alone can make an empire out of a republic, to restore former glory, to return lost territories and pride for this country.’

When Marty Van Dyke (or SenseiMonkeyboy, as he’s known on DeviantART) was asked to paint Darth Vader on a friend’s mailbox, he admitted that ‘it started that direction then veered off sharply into this.’ What he means by ‘this’, is that he smacked a realistic replica of Darth Vader’s masked helmet head right in front […]
