Matt Busch Anniversary prints
« on: August 20, 2008, 01:55:18 PM »
Ok, did anyone else get these, or any of them? The ESB one was released first, as an exclusive on SWS.com - then the ANH was issued at Celebration 4. The ROTJ came last, available through Busch's website, as a fund raiser for the National Lymphoma Society. I was lucky enough to get the ESB from SWS.com when it went on sale, and then I was extra lucky and got the Artist Proof version of the other 2.



I'm not very fond of the crappy frames I have them in right now, but I can't afford to get some nice matted frame jobs at this point... but when I can, these will be the first three that I get done.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

Dude, those are gorgeous prints! I really dig the ESB one. I can't tell from the camera angle, is the emporer on the Jedi print?

Yeah, I had to take the pic on a really bad angle because of where they are on the wall and the glare from the glass... I don't know how to take any better pics through glass besides at an angle  :-\

But yes, right below Vader's helmet on the ROTJ is the Emperor in his chair.

If there's one thing I don't like, it's the fact that Busch painted Boba Fett front and center on two prints. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Fett man, and he's my favorite character and has been since 1979, but I just think that it throws the balance of the trilogy of prints off having him on what turns into the middle and right prints when you look at them straight on.

That and the fact that he should have painted Vader's helmet facing in towards the center on the ANH and ROTJ prints while having Vader facing front on the ESB, because again when you look at the trilogy together it looks weird with Vader facing left, left, center.

I guess he didn't think that far ahead, or think that too many people would actually get all 3  :P

Will there be an Alliance series with the droids, the rebels, some twins, a pirate,  a wookie and the Colt 45 spokesman?

I was able to get all three as AP.  I still have them all in the tube they came in though.  Just not enough money to get them framed and I'm hoping to get my own place in the next year.  Just figure the easier it is to move the better off I'll be.
