In Solo, we see Dryden Vos has a number of different artifacts, most notably a set of Mandalorian armour and a Sith holocron. How did he collect these items since they are incredibly hard to get hold of?*

*- I assume that from watching the Clone Wars and Rebels that no Mandalorian would easily give their armour away, without a fight at least.

    The Sith hardly give up their holocrons easily either. – Essen Jun 13 '18 at 17:23

    Did you miss the part where he's fabulously wealthy and has a tendency to pay people to steal him things? – Valorum Jun 13 '18 at 18:00

There's some additional details in the film's Official Guide. In short, Dryden uses a mixture of legal and non-legal methods to acquire the items in his collection.


The displays in Dryden's study are only a fraction of the rarities in his collection. Vos rotates out the galleries at whim, requesting items from storehouses on Tanaab, Byblos, Cato Neimoidia, and elsewhere. He employs well-paid buyers and relic-hunters to risk their lives in order to find him new trophies.



Dryden Vos does not follow any of the regulations that prevent ethical archaeologists from taking items sacred to other cultures. His display of mystical antiquities includes Rafa life crystals, arks that hold the ashes of Chancellor Contispex I, Rakatan wraith boxes, and the Dancing Goddess idol of the Godoan people.

As to the presence of a reconditioned Sith Holocron, there's another Sith item in his collection, raided from a Sith Temple. It's possible (and in fact, downright likely) that they came from the same source.
