OK we all know what happened in 1997 with regard to Star Wars’ 20th anniversary. But I was wondering, was something released in '87 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first star wars film? I can’t remember hearing of anything being released back then. Just a thought.
I’m pretty sure that there was a poster, but thats all I know of.
Although Star Wars was largely forgotten by then, even the long-running Marvel comic series had been cancelled. Nonetheless there were a few items of note for me to celebrate. The VHS tapes were re-released with a tenth anniversary trilogy commercial added (wouldn't mind seeing that again); the Trilogy was released in widescreen for the first time (!) on laserdisc (drool... they were so expensive I thought I would never own them); Blackthorne publishing picked up the license and launched a 3-D Star Wars comic set during the trilogy time period (not after ROTJ like Marvel and despite a bad 3-D gimmick it was a pretty decent book with great art, managed three issues before it went under) and Marco props produced the most authentic and realistic Star Wars props including lightsabers that actually lit up with lights and sounds (wish I could've afforded their $125 price tag back then) that have only been equalled by Master Replicas in recent years... that's all I can remember for now but I'm sure there might have been a few more, ah, good times...
also whats the file size/dimensions that gets considered hi-res for a poster. ill try and go through the posters i have and identify the hi-res ones

"No. No. That's not true! That's impossible!" - Anakin

Believe it or not, Spaceballs was being promoted there. Dark Helmet's costume was on display.
