With Star Wars day now upon us. May the 4th has become the most iconic day within the Star Wars calendar. May the 4th be with you (its full title), has become a day to worship all things Star Wars.
An imaginative idea first brought to the big screen by its creator George Lucas, has now transcended the Star Wars brand into a multi billion dollar industry, with Disney purchasing Lucasfilm for a reported $4.05bn (£2.5bn) in 2012.
Over the years many iconic characters have emerged from the Star Wars franchise, such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Yoda etc. However, the darkest character (pardon the pun), has got to be Darth Vader. This iconic villain, who was introduced in the first Star Wars movie, was an imposing character standing well over 6ft, draped in black curtains, with a severe nasal problem, and was petrifying and intimidating when dealing with both his enemies and colleagues. (Not the ideal traits for a senior manager in today's workplace).

In contrast Yoda was a legendary Jedi master, being among the oldest and most powerful. Standing a mere 2 ft tall, Yoda served as the last Grand Master of the Jedi Order. And despite his small stature, this popular character has become an important figure in the Star Wars saga since his introduction in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back, were he guided Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force........for free. (Maybe a piggyback ride too).

Stormtroopers were first introduced in 'A New Hope' as the foot soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Their distinctive look quickly became a hit with the films fans, and later cosplayers. Over the course of the Star Wars saga many variation of Stormtroopers have been seen, however the original white battle armour is still the most iconic look.
