Vintage Return of the Jedi Iron-On by Union Underwear

September 12, 2010

I remember iron-ons being pretty popular back in the day. You could buy one and apply it to any shirt with just an ordinary iron. I bought this unused and had originally intended to just keep it on the paper and display it that way. But I had forgotten that iron-ons are reversed and backwards — the only part you can see is the underside of the transfer, which basically looks like nothing. So, after a little trepidation, I decided to actually use it and put it on a plain t-shirt. It worked pretty well, I think. It doesn’t seem to have suffered from being close to 30 years old. The colors are vibrant and the whole transfer is nice and glossy, like a photograph.

In terms of subject matter, this is an extremely Jabba-centric image. You’ve got Jabba and Bib Fortuna in the center, with Salacious Crumb, Toothface (aka J’Quille), Ree Yees, Yak Face (aka Saelt-Marae), a Gamorrean Guard, and Max Rebo. And don’t forget about Jabba’s sail barge in the background. Wow.
