Vintage Children’s Jabba the Hutt/Return of the Jedi Shirt by Union Underwear

November 27, 2015


When you’ve been collecting Jabba the Hutt items as long as I have, finding something new can be difficult, but it’s always a bit of a thrill when it does happen. This shirt by Union Underwear showed up on eBay a while ago and while it was frankly overpriced, I bought it because I had never seen one before. This shirt and its artwork is completely new to me. I also asked around a bit among collectors and couldn’t seem to find anyone who was familiar with it (although it’s probably fair to say that most people don’t pay as much attention to this sort of thing as I do). Have any of you seen this shirt before, or any other products using this artwork? I’d be interested to hear it. It doesn’t even appear to be on the Star Wars Collector’s Archive.


Anyway, I was glad to be able to get it for my collection. Years ago I passed on a couple of items I thought were too pricey (although they weren’t actually all that much in hindsight) and I’ve regretted it ever since, as I’ve been unable to find them anywhere. So I guess I don’t mind paying a little extra when something like this comes along.

I also have a Gamorrean Guard t-shirt and an iron-on from Union Underwear in my collection, but neither of those is particularly rare.

      My Dad used to have a vintage “Revenge” version of this made as a prototype for Fruit if the Loom (though it was sadly pawned off years ago). If you want to ask him some questions about it, I can get you his contact info!
