Back in the early 1980s, little Derek Powazek collected several cups from Burger King with old-school Battlestar Galactica and Return of the Jedi art on them. Now he's rescued them from destruction in his family home, and has turned them into lovely portraits of a bygone era in scifi swag. Here are a few more, below.

Maybe these aren't the coolest, but when I was a kid C3P0 was my favorite. So there. Want to see the whole set? Check out Derek's Flickrstream.

Somewhere, I have a box full of these, perhaps at my parents home. I hope they didn't get lost in the 10 years of moves after college. I had/have all those Jedi ones there. Muppets, Starwars, star trek, Looney Toons. They were the best. Now we get flimsy plastic cups with giant heads on top. Not the same.
