Unknown Millennium Falcon Art #16

I found this today on MoonZeroTwo and it’s awesome. It really looks like a Matt painting that was used for the hanger bay in Home One on Return of the Jedi, but the angle seems wrong and i can’t see a blank area where for projecting the movie images.

I just love how beat up everything looks. Here’s the full image.

Perhaps it was used for Han’s goodbye to Lando before departing on the Tyderium. Either way, i love this picture. Perhaps Acme could release it as a print? 🙂 (In fact, there were a few stunning matte’s of the Millennium Falcon used throughout the trilogy that would make a nice artwork to collect.)

I’ve also added the original Matte painting from Return of the Jedi of Home one’s hanger bay.

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.

    This is a matte painting from ROTJ. There was a second very similar one done as well. Both were used as backdrops in the scene between Lando and Han as Han is about to depart for Endor.

    There are no cutouts for live action because all the live action was in front.
