Vintage Return of the Jedi Scrubbable Wallcovering by Specialty Wallpapers

November 25, 2011

I won a couple of rolls of this wallpaper from 1983 in an auction. Until I saw it, I didn’t realize that they had made wallpaper with Jabba on it, so it was a nice surprise when it popped up on ebay. One of the rolls had the shrinkwrap coming off, which solved the dilemma of whether to open it or not. Luckily, it was the one that didn’t have Jabba showing on the outside, so I’ll be keeping the one above as a sealed example. I was a little afraid that the entire roll would be stuck together, since it’s pre-pasted, but it was fine.

The design has paintings of various characters from Return of the Jedi: Jabba the Hutt (of course), a Gamorrean Guard, Lando as a skiff guard, Luke, Leia, Chewbacca with C-3PO & R2-D2, Darth Vader and some imperial guards (in front of the imperial shuttle), some ewoks and a biker scout. They’re well done — especially the Jabba section looks really nice.

I don’t know if I want to actually put this on any of my walls, but I may be able to find a use for it somewhere. Do they still make character wallpaper like this for kids?

    I had this wallpaper growing up and it’s so cool to see it again on here. Thanks for the flashback.
