Over on Geek-Art.net, there's this nice piece of fan art from Franco Brambilla of what appears to be Ultraman riding an AT-AT. Looks like Vader is down there watching, too. We love it, and it seems oddly fitting for the approaching holiday season. (More fun art on Geek-Art.net. What does the rodeo clown of this scenario look like?)
