293 days until Star Wars: Not even the Empire can resist the power of selfies

In a galaxy far, far away there are comlinks and holo-communicators in lieu of cell phones. While a tiny (or life-sized) 3-D rendering of the person you”re talking to is pretty cool, where are the added features?

After all, cell phones aren't just for communication! They are a lifeline to infinite information, instant entertainment, and a never-ending stream of selfies. Redditor Local-Lynx imagined how much different “Star Wars” would”ve been if stormtroopers had an Empire version of Facebook.

Gotta immortalized those memories for the folks back home on the Outer Rim, right?

Not to be outdone, Mioriti turned up another Trooper selfie, this time with the Sith Lord himself.

Both may owe their inspiration to this image that appeared on the Official Star Wars Instagram last year that had Darth Vader lamenting about another boring day at the office.
