A Look at the Easter Eggs of Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities

Dok-ondar featured

When Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opened over the summer at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it received plenty of praise from guests, but it also got a bit of backlash for focusing heavily on the recent sequel trilogy at the expense of the classic films that older fans grew up with. Well, if there’s one place in Black Spire Outpost that pays homage to the entire saga, it’s Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, the land’s largest collectibles shop and the home of countless Easter eggs from every cinematic era and several television series.

Dok-Ondar, for those who haven’t already been to Batuu, is an Ithorian antiques dealer who has been known to consort with Chewbacca and other members of the Resistance; you can learn more about his exploits in Marvel’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge comic books. We will never know how Dok-Ondar acquired the many artifacts on display at his Den of Antiquities, but we do know that guests will love discovering them. From Felucian Fireflies to the Ark of the Covenant, he seems to have it all!

Watch this video tour of the Den of Antiquities, and then continue reading for details on a few of our favorite hidden treasures from across the Star Wars galaxy.

Dok-Ondar’s Prequel Trilogy Easter Eggs

The Phantom Menace and its fellow prequels didn’t get the warmest reception upon release, but in the 20 years since they’ve been embraced by a new generation of fans. Dok-Ondar must be once of them because he’s got several tributes to Episodes I through III on display.

Jar-Jar Binks was many critics’ least liked character in Episode I, but at Dok-Ondar’s he’s golden! A gold bust of the bumbling sidekick (or at least another Gungan that looks suspiciously like him) lies on Dok’s balcony.
This toothy creature is a Nexu, one of which tried to eat Queen Amidala in
Attack of the Clones.
This bas-relief sculpture of Sith battling Jedi resembles a mural seen in Palpatine’s office during Revenge of the Sith.
Jedi statues like this one outside Dok-Ondar’s once stood outside the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in the Prequels.

Classic Trilogy Easter Eggs

For guests of a certain age, the Den’s hidden references to the original Star Wars films will spark the strongest memories.

You’ll recognize several blasters on this wall from A New Hope, include Han Solo’s pistol and a standard-issue Stormtrooper rifle.
This tank full of tentacles is a Dianoga, better known as the Death Star’s trash compactor creature. You can also spot a Dianoga’s eye-stalk swimming in the water fountain at the other end of Black Spire Outpost.
Dok’s biggest trophy is this full-size Wampa from The Empire Strikes Back
…which may have snacked on this Tauntaun, a fellow native of the snow planet Hoth.
Our absolute favorite Easter Egg in Dok-Ondar’s is this animatronic baby Sarlac, as seen on Tatooine in Return of the Jedi. Not only can you see his mouth and flailing limbs…
…but we now finally know what the Sarlac’s body looks like beneath the surface!

Television Series Easter Eggs

Hardcore Star Wars fans know that the animated television series—Clone Wars, Rebels, and Resistance—have provided some of the saga’s greatest moments. Until now those images have only existed in computer-generated form, but Dok-Ondar’s gives physical form to some iconic props from the small screen.

This red-and-yellow scout helmet was painted by Sabine Wren for Ezra Bridger to wear
in Rebels.
This Kalikori is a family heirloom belonging to Hera Syndulla from Rebels.
If you want to be an honorary Twi’lek, you can take home a Kalikori of your own!

Finally, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is set immediately after the events of The Last Jedi, so Dok-Ondar hasn’t yet collected many artifacts from the sequel trilogy era. But observant visitors will notice a few empty spots on his shelves, which may be filled with new items after Rise of Skywalker is released. That’s just another reason to return to Batuu in the future, and to pay another visit to Black Spire Outpost’s Easter Egg headquarters.
