This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Star Wars bookends whose rich detail is a feast for the eyes. (In fact, it’s our third–go here and here for the previous posts.) What you see below are a pair of Jabba’s Palace themed bookends for whatever collection of yours needs bookending. It stars Boba Fett plus that orc dude with an axe, another bounty hunter who’s actually Princess Leia in disguise, and dear old Han Solo in his carbonite prison. The Tauntaun head adds extra coolness, in our opinion.
To be honest, we’d prefer Leia in her exotic string bikini after she was caught by Jabba’s henchmen. Anyway, moving on…the bookends are available at the official Star Wars shop for a discounted $224.99. A bit pricey, but the treu collector knows no pain. Here’s a decent chunk of text describing the product:
“This poly-stone set of bookends captures Princess Leia Organa’s valiant attempt to save Han Solo as he hangs suspended in carbonite in Jabba the Hutt’s trophy room. To her Leia’s surprise, the feared Bounty Hunter Boba Fett and a ruthless Gammorean Guard stand to her left.
The detailed bookends measure a substantial 14-inches wide, 9-inches tall and 6.5-inches deep. The modular aspect of the bookends allows for several display options: Positioned together as a stand alone piece or simply supporting your favorite books or DVD collection. Made of quality materials, no detail was overlooked. This strictly limited edition collectible comes hand-numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.”
