Japan Vs. Star Wars: The Hello Kitty Stormtrooper

Try to imagine the most unholy union of historic geekology and annoying Japanese cuteness and you might just come up with the Hello Kitty Stormtrooper pictured above. Outfitted in hot pink Imperial Guard armor, the figure is not just a simple case of slapping a Hello Kitty head on a Star Wars figure.

If you look closely you'll notice the details that include the well known Hello Kitty paw prints on the gloves as well as the helmet shaped to accommodate cartoon cat ears. Although this was originally revealed at the recent Comic Con event, somewhere out there a little girl with Hello Kitty drapes and an obsession with all things Jedi is very, very happy.
