“Docking Bay” by Pablo Olivera


Pablo Olivera, first came to my notice earlier in the year for his beautiful trio of Blade Runner prints showcasing the Tyrell pyramids. Alas, I was too late and wasn’t able to score a single print. Hugely disappointing, to say the least.

You can see why, can’t you. They are beautiful.

This time, the Bottleneck Gallery is showcasing Pablo’s Star Wars art. “Docking Bay”, which is his A New Hope print, fits right into my collection and depicts Han and Chewie in their firefight with imperial forces just before blasting off from Tatooine.

The prints are $50 each and are limited to a hand numbered edition of 375 prints. There is a beautiful foil variant which is $60 and limited to 150. (This one sold out in 20 minutes, so expect to see them for a high price on eBay.) both prints are a nice 36” by 12” in size and should display nicely.

I have one criticism. The boxes in the underside make it look like the Falcon from The Empire Strikes Back and shouldn’t be there. Pedantic, I know, but fortunately, it doesn’t detract from my enjoyment of the print.

To finish off the trilogy, Pablo also has “Battle of Hoth” for The Empire Strikes Back and “No Bargain” for Return of the Jedi.

Both are available in either regular or foil variants. Again, the foil variants were sold out really quickly and I suspect the regular versions will be sold out long before the day is over.

I decided against getting the set and I think I’ll regret that. I should’ve also bought two of each. Pablo is a talented artist, to be sure and I’ll keep a close eye on his work in future.

Check out Pablo’s website for more examples of his work. I’m quite enamoured by his dramatic Bounty Hunters.

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 collectibles as it increases.
