“Jabba the Robber Baron” (Late 19th Century Jabba) by Greg Peltz

July 20, 2010

Greg Peltz recently unveiled a series of digital paintings showing Star Wars characters in 19th century dress, including brilliant versions of C-3PO, Boba Fett, and Chewbacca, as well as slightly different versions of Darth Vader and Luke & Leia. I really liked this idea (kind of reminds me of the steam punk-inspired “Steam Wars” figures that Silloff made). Anyway, I commissioned Greg to do a Jabba painting for me.

While Jabba is generally thought of as a gangster, my concept for this piece was that Jabba would be a merciless robber baron from the late 19th century, and I think Greg captured that perfectly. I plan to print the high-resolution version of this and put it in a nice oval frame.

EDIT #1: Here it is printed out and framed.

EDIT #2: This piece and the other ones that Greg did in a similar style are now available as officially licensed prints from ACME Archives Direct.

    Jabba and Raffles in the same crew, huh?

    I have seen some of these and i have to say that i like them a lot. They’re a pretty unique take on the whole saga. Nice commission.

    Now I think it’s kinda too realistic I mean if Jabba were real he would probably look the way he does in the movies and no cigar I mean he has his hooka he would smoke from he would be buying bongs every where instead of cigars.
