Looking for something colorful or breathtaking for your Geekcave? Some new Boba Fett artwork have made their way onto the Internet this past week.

It’s not too often limited edition prints are made at affordable prices, so it’s not shocker that Tom Hodges’ “Boba and his Bounty” sold out pretty fast. In fact, as you read this, the item has been removed from his etsy page – sold out before 8 a.m. two days ago.

If you missed out on Hodges’ piece, another affordable, but fantastic piece is available for pre-order at “Luke To The Rescue,” is a hand-numbered limited edition of 95 pieces, measuring 19 inches tall by 13 inches wide and available for $89.

The piece illustrates Luke’s heroic scene on the Desert Skiff in Return of the Jedi, as he faces off against Boba Fett during his rescue mission. The artist, James Silvani, has a unique and fresh approach to his artwork – fantastic for your child’s room or hanging over your collection of animated style Star Wars toys.

Artist Robert Shane was always bothered by what happened to Boba Fett in the beginning of Return of the Jedi. One of his most recent illustrations features Fett’s resurrection from the Sarlacc pit. Here’s his proposal for the return of our favorite bounty hunter. What do you think of his proposal?

In my drawing I’ve shown Fett emerging from the Sarlacc pit after being trapped unconscious for 30 years. The Sarlacc’s stomach acid has been wearing away at his armor all this time - leading to the added corrosion and cracks I’ve drawn - until the acid created a short circuit in Fett’s jet pack which ignited the rocket on his pack, killing the Sarlacc and allowing Fett to wake from his stasis and slowly, wearily crawl up out of the burning pit… just in time to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII - looking to take revenge on Han Solo!”
