It's okay. A lot like the TAC coin album, which I think works well. Seems quite PT heavy for characters. Would have been nice to see the other ESB bounty hunters, Cantina patrons, Jabba's palace. Of course, this picture has been cropped down, too, so maybe they are on there and didn't make the cut.

It's a repro of Tsuneo Sanda's art from the 30th Anniversary.

I noticed that, too. A Twilek with no dialogue and in the movie for a brief few seconds gets in, yet the better looking Aayla Secura doesn't. 

And if she can make it, then the Tonikka Sisters better be getting some figure time.

Looks pretty bad to me. Time to learn to use Photoshop and make my own covers.

Not loving this.  It looks a little....amateurish.

I don't mind that piece, but I've seen some of the other illos and some of them are pure crap.  And, yes, I can say that as a professional illustrator.

What confuses me about Lucasfilm's choices is that they have so much amazing stuff in their archives, why create new, weak, stuff?  The front of the box alone is a terrible, terrible drawing.  I'm really not sure what they were going for.

Wicket Rocks!  Yub Nub!  I would have preferred a log somewhere in there, but that's just me.

I like how Palpatine looks like he's giving a thumbs up for no reason.

Maybe now we know where the other one is and why Jar Jar's smiling.

Because it's a horrible photoshop chop-up that's why.  When I checked out the link you put up earlier, I was really surprised at just how much they resized and moved some of the characters around...  very stupid.  Like someone already said, with all the art they have at LFL, this is the best they came up with for the blu-ray box?  ::)

Here's that original for those too lazy to click...


And on another note - why the hell does Leia look like something off a Richard James album cover?  ???
