I finally got around to seeing the latest Star Wars movie “Solo” last night, about the life and adventures of a young Han Solo. I know the reviews haven’t been good, and it didn’t live up to expectations at the box office, but my son and I both enjoyed it. The first half had some corny moments, but the story got more-involved and I thought more interesting by the second half.

I’ve always appreciated the extreme creativity and originality in the way that Star Wars characters have been designed and envisioned over the years; Yoda, Admiral Akbar, and Tusken Raiders are just three of many who are quite unique in their appearance. However, one of the characters from the Solo movie appeared to me as having a familiar style: Enfys Nest, who leads a group of marauders, brings to mind the 1980s artist, sculptor, hip hop musician, graffiti artist, and all-around unique individual Rammellzee. We’ve got two pictures stacked on the left of Enfys Nest alongside two pictures of Rammellzee stacked on the right. Between the masks, the narrow-slit eye-shield, and chest-gear hanging from a necklace, I’d say these two make for a pretty good pair. Could the creative designer of Enfys Nest actually taken some inspiration from Rammellzee’s style? Seems like a possibility to me …
