As a Star Wars poster expert, this is one of my favorite items. I love that it features art from Joe Johnston, which is almost never done. In fact, I can't think of another original vintage Star Wars advertising poster that credits Johnston on it. Beyond that fact, this is a VERY unusual Star Wars poster for a host of reasons: Usually, Star Wars advertising posters follow an archetypical design. Let's not forget the clusters of main characters you'll almost always find in the foreground.
This little gem is a happy departure. It depicts one of the standout model designs from the trilogy, which is the only time this image was used in a promotion! It wasn't even used on the cover of the book. There are also some rare design sketches shown on the poster as well.It's also an unusual poster in its size, measuring 13x22 inches. I don't know of any other Star Wars poster that measures this size.
The fact that this litho also says "COMING" on it, proves it to be an advance, which is extremely rare for a product advertising poster. The poster also credits the legendary Star Wars designer, Ralph McQuarrie. There were not many of these posters made, which is why it never comes up. It's in great rolled shape, but has a few minor imperfections that would be very easy to erase if it were linen-mounted. Because of the extreme rarity of this original, I've decided to sell it as is, to let the new owner decide if they want to back it or not.
The scans leave NOTHING to the imagination. I'VE POSTED DIRECT HIGH-RES IMAGES OF THE ACTUAL POSTER YOU'LL BE GETTING, SO YOU CAN SEE HOW NICE THIS BABY TRULY IS. Notice that this poster has NO white border.That's another interesting design element to this rare item. Looking for an investment/museum quality item.
Han Solo Billy Dee Williams.... Princess Leia Organa Peter Cushing....
Grand Moff Tarkin Alec Guinness.... Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi Anthony Daniels.... Darth Vader James Earl Jones.... 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! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society.
