I’m not sure if anyone else has done something like this on here before, but I figured I’d post anyways… I have always loved the 1995 “Faces” covers. I had the idea to make DVD covers for the entire Star Wars Saga. Here is the mockups I have for the prequels so far.

let me know if you have any better ideas for what faces and scenes to use on the covers. I will probably end up doing multiple versions of each cover so I’ll keep you updated.

I would not show the second eye, as that is what the originals look like.

I like the covers, but for

TPM, definitely keep Darth Maul, but I would use a Naboo starfighter or maybe the queen’s ship. (EDIT) now that I think about it, maybe use Darth Maul’s ship. One of the three is fine.

AOTC, I would keep Fett, but I would use the battle of Geonosis to match the Hoth battle on TESB.

ROTS, I would use the Emperor or maybe even Anakin for the face, and I would keep the lightsaber fight between Anakin and Obi-wan, just like the ROTJ original with Vader and Luke.

This way, the themes match.

Spyderbyte did some intriguing work on his Faces set which may be of interest? - http://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/512445

doublex776 had an intriguing set (but unfortunately lost it) - http://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/428359

RickWJ324 did this cool take on the OT set…

Good luck with it 😃

Love them! I always preferred the “Faces” set. Just a bit of criticism, the blurb on the back of ROTS contains several spelling errors like figting, ars, ar,y, and Grevous. Please consider changing them. Also, you should take out the part about Dooku still in hiding as that doesn’t make sense.

Otherwise I love these sets.

Lord Starkiller- thanks, will fix it ASAP

Looks good now, just change “figting” to “fighting” and it’ll be perfect 😃

Can’t wait to print these out and use them for my prequel discs!

tommyauck, that’s a really impressive set - they really look good and fit well with the OT Faces covers - nice work 😃

always thought it strange there hasn’t been many Faces-based custom covers down the years - so the more Faces-based covers, even for the Prequels, the better 😃

will you be doing one for TFA, and maybe the other 2 Sequel Trilogy films, somewhere down the line?

Wow I had no idea I was so bad at spelling! Thanks starkiller for proofreading… Carbonitesolo… I agree, although I had the same problem you did… the colors for the battle of Geonosis don’t match the rest of the cover. I was thinking about doing an alternate version using a clone trooper instead of jango. Let me know what you think

Also oojason yes I will do covers for TFA TLJ and episode 9 as they come out… maybe I’ll even do one for rogue one even though it’s an anthology

I do love your Episode III cover with Anakin, that’s a good choice. I will try and add a clone over your Jango Fett, then add the battle of Geonosis in the original color.

It’s not my fault!

Hi tommyauck - really great work, though I noticed there is a slight spelling error in ‘separitists’ on the Clones back cover (though is spelled correctly ‘separatists’ on the Sith back cover).

Also on the TPM cover it may be worth capitalising the word ‘Jedi’ (from the text ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi, the wise old jedi’) - as the word Jedi is capitalised on the other covers.

^ this my inner ocd anal spelling nerd coming out - feel free to ignore (and check my spellings of separatists too - just in case!)

They are very well-executed and interesting covers - am looking forward to seeing TFA and possible R1 Faces covers too 😃

That’s cool. Any idea who should be on Episode 8? Luke, Rey? or another villain? Snoke perhaps?

Luke probably should be one one of them - given the number of films he’s been in?

T’is a really great yellow colour on that TFA box above.

Maybe Jyn, K2S0 or Tarkin on the front for any R1 cover? (possibly Krennic - though maybe not iconic enough a character?)

Actually I’d argue Krennic would fit best since he is the one who arguably drives the plot forward and for the picture it should be a picture of Scarif with the building front and center. I’ll try and do a mock-up but I’m good at editing an already existing picture. Not so much from scratch. Can you link me the font used for the “Faces” set?

Another I guess would be a Death Trooper.

You could well be right there mate.

Off hand, I think the font used is ‘Star Jedi’ - http://www.fontspace.com/boba-fonts/star-jedi

tommyauck will know for sure - he’d have used it for his Prequel Title lettering 😃

For the subtitle font / text, that is Bank Gothic - https://ufonts.com/download/bank-gothic-medium/97517.html
 

Somewhere in this section of ot.com someone put together a great font / logo collection with pics from many of the various sets - but I can’t find it right now - doh!

Jedit - found it 😃

Hopefully, this may be of use to anyone looking up info for fonts and logos - the superb Trooperman and his ‘SW fonts’ thread from 2005:-

there is also some large-ish poster art for Rogue One - which may be of use for a Rogue One Faces-style cover - in here:-

Here’s my TFA cover… decided to continue the trilogy color scheme

On the one hand I enjoy the symmetry but on the other I think for a new trilogy it should have a new color scheme. I think a yellow-ish gold would be preferable and red for “The Last Jedi”.

On a similar note, I feel R1 should have a turquoise color scheme.

I think you’re right about the turquoise

This is a Rogue One faces cover I created really quick as a mockup.

I wanted to use Tarkin, but there aren’t any pictures of him I could find where he is looking at the camera. So I used Krennic, as LordStarkiller suggested. I also wanted to use the tower on Scarif, but I couldn’t find any pictures of the whole tower, just the base of it. Also, all the pictures I could find were stale pictures–not from battle action, which is weird because the OT faces covers all have some sort of action going on. I felt the picture of the heroes running worked better in that respect.

Since this is just a concept mockup, I didn’t create a back cover or spine.
