Star Wars fans are one of the most dedicated fans in the cinematic universe.

A few days ago, we reported a teenager who created his own fully-working BB-8 droid out of homemade materials. We also showed you a woodwork artist who made an exceptionally-detailed wood version of a Millenium Falcon.

Most recently, another artist named Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey  has captured the attention of many after creating a bunch of badass samurai versions of some of Star Wars: The Force Awakens characters.

Check out his awesome work on Star Wars below.

This one’s incredibly cool, an Ashigaru Nines creation where the artist mashed the Jutte, Tonfa and Katana in a single weapon.

All of Nikolas’ reimaginings on some characters of The Force Awakens are incredibly creative. I can’t wait to see more of his work on other characters especially of the original trilogy.

See more of his incredible art on his Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
