A Long Time Ago, in a decade far, far away...
This Colorforms "Star Snoopy" set begs the question, "Why didn't George Lucas sue Charles Schulz?" Granted, everyone had gone Star Wars crazy in 1977, but with elements like light sabers, land speeders, Death Stars, Storm Trooper helmets, X-Wing Fighters and barely disguised R2D2 and C3PO knockoffs, it looks like an open and shut case.
Given the outright intellectual theft, I thought I'd recreate some scenes from "A New Hope", with some artistic licensing (and limited characters), of course.
Help me, Obi-wan Snoopy, you're my only hope.
R3D3, where are you going?! Well, I'm not going that way.
