 (Edited)

Hi! I am new here. My sister and her husband just bought a house and they really want the original posters from star wars, or copies. So I have looked for them but there are alot of different ones. (I am trying to surprise them for Christmas) I was wondering if anyone could help me, please, I am looking for the ones put out at the time of release and she said something about them making a picture when put together. I am talking about episodes 4, 5, and 6. If this makes sence to anyone and you have a minute please email me anything that could help. Thank you so much!

Making a picture when put together? Huh? I'm a bit confused about what that means. Please clarify because it doesn't sound like anything I've ever heard. There are official posters for each movie, but that's about it. If you're talking about posters that line up to form some huge uberposter, I don't think that ever happened. At least not officially from LFL.

Actually, I believe you can do that with the covers of the first VHS boxset (the one you have, Bossk). As for posters that are like that, I don't believe that such a set exists.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Just checked it out and my box set doesn't do that.

Just looked at the back of the boxes as well and the set is copyrighted 1990. I'm doubting this is the earliest box set available on the retail market. Am I right about that?

That and I wasn't logged in which means I can't edit (read: "add to") posts. You can only edit posts when you're logged in. I was just signing in with each post.

SORRY SHIMRAA!!!

I still don't know why it did that. On this BB, you can only click the submit button once. If you do it twice (or more) you get error messages. Must've been one helluva glitch.

Or we could really have some fun and chloroform him and stuff him inside the carcass of a Taun Taun and let him wake up in there. Gotta make sure we have A/V of him waking up though.

i have another poster hunt for you guys... lol this ones a bit more simple...

theres a mosaic poster out there of Darth Vader that is horizontal...
it has a black border and is made up of scenes from the Star Wars trilogy (of course)... its not a hard find im sure.. but lately i cant find it even mentioned on the internet let alone in stores... so if anyone could possibly point me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, as this would complete my Star Wars art gallery..... except for that print of Revenge of the Jedi which i wanted ever so badly...

happy hunting.. and thx guys

One word, Luke: Imaginus. I've seen both the Darth Vader and Yoda mosaics there.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.
