STAR WARS NIXON LAUNCHES

Nixon Watches have created a special Star Wars collection of watches, Star Wars Nixon.  They are launching this #ForceFriday so what better time to discuss the most iconic Star Wars Villains.  Phase one of the Star Wars Nixon Watches include: Imperial Pilot series, Stormtrooper series, and the Darth Vader Automatic.  More Star Wars Nixon Watches will be launched in November.

5.  IMPERIAL PILOT

The Imperial Pilots are the pilots for the Galactic Empire.  The Imperial Pilots flew the TIE fighters.  They needed to use their lightning quick reflexes during attacks.  The Imperial Pilot uniform looks like a black color version of a stormtrooper uniform, but there are a lot of differences.  While the helmets may look similar, the Imperial Pilot had a larger helmet that was vacuum sealed.  Other than that the Imperial Pilot wore no armor.  This was so they could move better in the TIE fighter.  If the stormtroopers are the ground-force, the Imperial Pilots acted as the Galactic empire's Air-force.   While Piloting they had very little protection so they had to be fearsome and calculating or they may not survive.

Their armor and training are modified for their environment, the cockpit of a TIE fighter.  The Imperial Pilot Uniform was designed by legendary concept artist and illustrator Ralph McQuarrie.

4. DARTH MAUL

"A figure from your worst nightmare" is how Star Wars creator George Lucas described Darth Maul.  Darth Maul is the only character from the prequel series mentioned in this article.  He might have only been in "Episode 1" for mostly the second half of the movie, but he instantly became an icon. 

Darth Maul is quite a character with his black and red color scheme and crown of horns.  Darth Maul was designed by Ian McCaig, David Dozoretz & Gavin Bocquet.

3.  STORMTROOPER

The Stormtrooper is one of the most iconic designs in the Star Wars universe.  These soldiers with their white armor and black detailing have a striking look and have become Star Wars icons.  While it is debatable if they are really good soldiers, they never seem to hit anything with their guns, they instantly scream “Star Wars”.  Stormtroopers are the ground-force of the Galactic Empire. 

Their armor and training are modified for their environment.  Some of the specialized stormtrooper armor include, Snowtroopers, Sandtroopers, Shadow troopers and Imperial Scout Troopers.  The stormtrooper armor was designed by legendary concept artist and illustrator Ralph McQuarrie.

2.  BOBA FETT

Boba may have only a few minutes of screen time in the original Star Wars movies, but he left a legacy.  By far one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe is Boba Fett.  Just what makes Boba Fett such an iconic character?  The mystery? The fact that he is a bounty hunter?  The fact that Darth Vader seems to respect him?  Whatever you think about Boba, he is surely a man of mystery.  

Boba Fett's character was inspired by gunslingers of the old west.  Much of Boba's design was originally designed for Darth Vader.  The overall design of Boba Fett is attributed to Joe Johnston.

1.  DARTH VADER

Darth Vader is the most iconic designs in the Star Wars universe.  You can never go wrong with all black.  The story of Star Wars are really about the Skywalker family, especially Darth Vader.  Once a heroic Jedi knight,  he was seduced by power and became a Sith Lord.

Darth Vader was once Anakin, a Jedi Knight.  It was believed that he would bring balance to the force.  Darth Vader is such a cultural icon that he was voted as third greatest movie villain by the American Film Institute.   Darth Vader's Mask was designed by legendary concept artist and illustrator Ralph McQuarrie.

THERE’S BEEN AN AWAKENING.  HAVE YOU FELT IT?

Introducing Star Wars Nixon Collection.  The Star Wars Nixon Watch collection is a series of watches designed after the iconic Star Wars Characters.  These Star Wars Nixon watches would look just as awesome on you, as it would on a stormtrooper, Boba Fett or even Darth Vader.
