Jabba the Hutt and Han Solo ChromArt Print by OSP Publishing

January 30, 2011

The certificate of authenticity for this reads, “This ChromArt Chromium Print is made by a special patented process to create an illusion of depth.” And I guess there is a subtle three-dimensional effect there somewhere. Basically, they’ve printed a still from the film on a metallic sheet that has been embossed somehow. You can see it better in a closeup:

It’s not unattractive, but of course I would have preferred something other than the “Special Edition” Jabba. But since this came out in 1997 when the new versions of the films were being re-released, I guess it can’t be helped.. Frankly, I’m not sure why the average person would want to display something like this. The made a number of different ChromArt prints, but they must not have sold very well, since I got mine for under $5 still in the shrink wrap. Its outside dimensions are 11 x 14, but the actual image is about 9.5 x 6.5.

    Yeah, i have a couple of these in my Falcon collection and they too were pretty cheap. Not to sure how i feel about them as i felt that all the pictures they produced were pretty generic and there wasn’t a single outstanding one as i recall.

    Still, you can get them at a good price.
