“Millennium Falcon at Bespin” by Ben Tankard


I bought a couple of paintings from Ben Tankard early last year and i like his broad style. This year, Ben contacted me and asked me what my ideal painting was. I must confess that i don’t really have an ideal image in my head as i like to see how the artist interprets the Falcon. However, Bespin has always been my favourite scene so i asked him to do something along those lines. Here’s what he came up with.

I must say, i really like it and for $40 plus postage, it’s a great price. There’s also a second painting entitled “Escape from Bespin” showing the top of the Falcon that i’d like to get when payday comes.

He’s also done a companion “Slave 1 over Bespin” painting that i’m rather taken with.

I thoroughly reccommend him. Check out his Etsy page and contact him if there’s something specific that you want painted.

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.
