One of my favorite magazines is Hobby Japan, one of Japan's premier modeling magazines. Heck They even had a Manga version of The Clash in the back pages! This Star Wars themed cover is from the July 1983 issue which features these two funky...but very cool...renditions of Darth Vader and two Storm Troopers. What a great cover from the Return of The Jedi era. Hobby Japan is never a let down!
