This is one of the most notable Star Wars rip-offs in the film's history. Coca-Cola took the liberty of stealing the R2D2 robot design and repackaging it for their advertising and merchandising purposes.
This very rare poster was issued to advertise the Cobot a. Coke Bot to a more than Star Wars hungry country.Actually, this campaign went worldwide. When Lucas got wind of it, he was said to have had a hissy-fit! Immediately, his bank of lawyers went to work to stop it! Subsequently, the Coca-Cola Company withdrew the toys from the market and surrendered this campaign for good, making the posters rare to find.
It's among the rarest of the early Star Wars related posters out there, and, certainly a stellar Coca Cola collectible as well. Not many were ever distributed and only a handful has survived. These are much rarer than the movie theater posters.
They're rarer by about a margin of about 10,000 to ONE! This is a chance to own a real time capsule for any advanced Coca-Cola or Star Wars collection. This poster was issued 17.75x22.75 inches. The poster was designed and printed WITHOUT a white border.They call that a full "Bleed" in the advertising industry. It makes it much harder to handle a poster if it's a full Bleed, and so I had this poster museum linen-mounted to protect it and to make it easy to frame. It only had a cou.

LINEN-MOUNTING: is an accepted form of poster preservation by the Library of Congress and every museum in the country. A lot of advanced poster buyers request and prefer linen-mounted posters because it makes framing and displaying the posters much easier - ESPECIALLY on borderless posters. As I pointed out, this poster was made w.
The white you see in the photo is the white of the Japanese paper lining the linen border margin. You can see how easy it would be to damage the original poster without that extra margin of protection.The backing makes the poster much safer to handle - it GREATLY reduces the risk of damaging the original. Also, all of my linen-backed posters have been stored FLAT so they DO NOT have a curl to them - They're ready for framing and display. If you're looking for an investment/museum quality item.

It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock - Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won't inspire anyone!
