Lyndon is a Digital artist based in Australia with a passion for fantasy and conceptual artwork, his posters and conceptual artworks are among some of the best fan art we’ve seen. This intriguing depiction of a ruinous throne room shows a lone warrior with some clear issues about where his loyality lies. Looking out over an imperial occupied Coruscant the protagonist has each blade drawn that of the Sith and the Jedi knight.
Is this Mace Windu?
Certainly the figure appears bald! Considered one of the greatest swordsmen ever produced by the Jedi Order Mace Windu met his death at the hands of the former Emperor Palpatine and Anakin, in the dramatic scenes from Revenge of the Sith. So getting hit by force lightning and thrusted out of the window 100′s of stories up, without any arms to break his fall, you’d expect the Jedi Master to be dead.
However he was not featured in the line up of ‘force ghosts’ at the end of ‘Revenge of the Sith’, If Qui-Gon acquired the skill you would have thought Windu would have learnt the ability. Looking to the Expanded Universe Windu is the creator and sole master of a style of lightsaber combat called Vaapad (Form VII), in which the combatant skirts dangerously close to the dark side — without giving into it — by actually enjoying the fight and the thrill of victory. Others who attempted to master this form of combat either gave in to the dark side or were unable to master it. Has Mace somehow survived the fall but tumbled to the darkside?
Who wants to see a fight between the orphan Boba who somehow escaped the Sarlacc pit to track down his fathers ageing killer. Maybe this is taking it too far!
Samuel has certainly expressed interest in reprising his role in the sequel trilogy.
