He-Man was never the sharpest sword in the armory, which explains this Mr. Villains Class of 1983 “photo”; this fantastic retro poster by Christopher Lee is a must for MOTU fans.
Film the Blanks is an ongoing project to create abstract, minimalist versions of movie posters by blanking out text and reducing shapes and colors; see how many you can guess here.

Penney Design is the latest to get in on the retro book cover fad, but they do a triple mashup mixing modern movies, old books, and cartridge games; one copy of 2D Avatar, please.
Benson Chou revamps the classic Brand Alphabet with his own 21st-century version that includes everything from Facebook to DC Shoes; download the 11×17 poster free here.
Alex Roman’s The Third & The Seventh is amazing; this full-CG piece is technically a look both through the lens of a camera and aside it, but is best enjoyed abstractly. Thanks, everyone!

Outland Armour strikes back with Steampunk Star Wars, which debuted at Dragon Con 2009; top picks go to a WWI-styled Vader and an epically armored Boba Fett. (galleries: 1, 2).
Nils Volker’s slowly crawling Lightdrawing Robot seems more like the half-shell Da Vinci than the real one; still, there’s something charming about painting with LEDs and long exposures.
