Jon Acosta’s Steampunk Lightsaber is a one-off, so there’s absolutly no chance of anyone else getting one. (8+(

Whilst not strictly Steampunk go to here, which is a blog entry containing images of steampunk(ish) Stormtroopers, Bobba Fett and Alien, in that order.

Here we have a Steampunk Flux Capacitor. Steampunk Borg-style ocular implant, which has two lenses, two flashing valves, a leather strap for attachment to your scalp and another piece providing a microscope effect.
A fully functional steam powered R2 unit and I’ve already made an entry on Steampunk weapons of the retro-future.

EDIT – There’s also a Steampunk Dalek, together with YouTube video
