Star Wars vs. the opening themes of 80’s TV shows

The Star Wars

There is no shortage of Star Wars mashup videos littered across the internet and they are normally of the “watch once and forget” variety. However, those of you with a certain nostalgia for 80’s TV shows and their ever-so-catchy theme tunes might enjoy what the Star Wars Mashup Channel has put together on Youtube.

Get ready for Star Wars visuals mixed to the intros of The Love Boat, MacGyver, Airwolf (Imperials and Rebels!), the A-Team and Dallas!

If you like these, check out the Star Wars Battle Tribute on the same channel which mixes The Prodigy track Voodoo People to various battles from the Star Wars saga.

The A-Team Corvette

I found myself looking at a collection of A-Team die-cast vehicles recently and it reminded me that the popular GMC van wasn’t the only mode of transport for the soldiers of fortune.

Face owned a very nice ’84 ‘vette that was occasionally seen too.

I can’t recall any missions that really needed the Corvette but it sure does look good and was an obvious choice for its owner, Face. I’m not sure it looks as good with Murdock at the wheel though!

Retro Vehicles by SM-Artworks

SM-Artworks

Browsing around Etsy during my lunch break and stumbled upon the art of SM-Artworks – a very talented artist who creates some great retro pieces. I particularly enjoyed his vehicle prints.

The Knight Rider/Airwolf/A-Team/Streethawk print above is my favourite, but the Honky Tonk work below featuring Smokey and the Bandit’s Trans Am, The Dukes of Hazzard’s General Lee and the Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch is a very close second!

Check out the Etsy shop for more work from the artist, including a very nice James Bond piece featuring various Aston Martin’s.

LEGO A-Team

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The LEGO A-Team.

Now this is a LEGO video game concept I could get behind. Great work by The Incinerator14.
