I stumbled upon Alastair Eales on eBay selling some of his watercolors paintings of vintage Star Wars figures on eBay. As he explains on his website, he intends to do paintings of the entire range of Kenner figures, and he’s done a little over 20 of them at this point. Most of the figures are shown in isolation, although he’s also done some recreations of vintage Kenner cardbacks as well. Naturally, I contacted him to see if he could do a Jabba the Hutt for me, which he kindly did. I’m very impressed with it.alistair_eales_vintage_jabba_close1

I understand that most of the paintings are scaled so that the figures on the page are roughly the size of the actual figures, but Jabba is somewhat smaller. The paper is about 11.5″ by 8.3″ and Jabba’s throne is about 8″ wide.
