Blue Max, Bollux, Chewbacca and Han Solo by Chris Trevas


There hasn’t been much in the way of new merchandise or hand made good for me to post about recently, so i thought that i’d post on a couple of art pieces that i’ve seen. 😦

Back in the early 80’s, before Zahn’s Heir to the Empire Trilogy created the Expanded Universe, the only real Star Wars books your could look forward to were “A Splinter In The Minds Eye”, the Lando Carissian Trilogy and the Han Solo Trilogy. These books (Han Solo at Stars End, Han Solo and the Lost Legacy and Han Solo’s Revenge) by Brian Daley told tales of Han’s earlier days in the Corporate Sector and were pretty good.

A couple of characters in the book were Blue Max (a splicer computer) and Bollux (BLX-5). Chris Trevas has created this image (i think it was for the essential guide to droids), of the four of them just outside the Falcon’s entrance ramp.

As with all of Chris’s work, the details are superb.

About mffanrodders

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.
