These Star Wars photos look real but they're actually just life-like images of toys

A Finnish man has captured the Millennium Falcon on camera as it soared above and across the icy forest in his own backyard.

Well, not really. The fictional spacecraft from blockbuster franchise Star Wars does exist...but only in toy form. And you can see it alongside hundreds of other Star Wars toys via Avanaut's Flickr page.

Finnish artist and illustrator Vesa Lehtimäki (aka Avanaut) has spent many years meticulously setting up these Star Wars toys in and around his garden - all in the hopes that he could create a breathtaking, perspective illusion with his camera.

According to ItsNiceThat.com, Lehtimäki mixes miniatures Legos with classical licensed toys, and then he snaps carefully-angled photos of them. The result is a realistic scene made fit for a Star Wars film. Even George Lucas should be amazed.

If you're a Star Wars fanatic, definitely check out the Avanaut Flickr page. His photo-series has more than 300 life-like images. You may even feel inspired to grab your favourite Ewok plushy and spend the entire weekend trying to photograph him in action. Good luck with that.
