“ABC’s of Star Wars” Throw (Star Wars Celebration Europe-Exclusive)

August 22, 2013

I haven’t yet managed to make it to one of the Star Wars Celebrations held in the US, so the chances of me being able to attend the recent Celebration Europe in Germany were not good. But there were a few interesting exclusives at the show. This throw was made specifically for Celebration Europe and features the art of Katie Cook. It wasn’t originally available outside the show, but the site Reed Pop Supply has been selling leftover stock of various exclusives at the same prices you would have paid at the show. (Today is supposedly the last day they will be available.)

I thought this would be a nice addition to my 2-year-old daughter’s room.  The throw reminds me quite a bit of my Han in Carbonite throw I got a while back. In fact, they both have the same exact colors of fringe (multicolored on two sides and black & white on the others), so they may actually have been made by the same company, or at least using the same process.

Katie Cook’s art is always a treat. I also have a sketch card of Jabba and his son Rotta by Katie.  Here, Jabba looks a little like he’s got a ribbon on his head, but I’m pretty sure that’s just Salacious Crumb peeking out from behind him.

    Very cool. I got the poster sized print for my friend’s son last year. I don’t normally go in for the “cute” Star Wars stuff, but I really enjoy Katie Cook’s work.
