Japanese Star Wars art

Is there anyway that those of us in the states can get posters of some of the different art Japan gets, specifically posters of the covers for the NJO books?
Which is the more foolish, the fool (the OT) or the fool who follows (the PT)?

The "Phantom Menace" manga was released here in Brazil a few years ago. Bizarre. Well, any "ocidentilized" product in Japan comes out bizarre, such as the X-Men manga, the Ayrton Senna manga, the Schwazenegger japanese TV-ads...
“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

They had manga for ANH, ESB, and ROTJ as well. I have ANH and, I believe, ESB, but I never got ROTJ.

I loved the manga adaptations! They were spread over 4 books and kept the pacing of the films as well as most of the script unlike most crammed American movie comics.

All three were good, but the artist for ROTJ was just a little too stylized for my tastes. As usual the PM was the weakest despite some decent Asimiya art.
The original Star Wars trilogy: Our cultural history deserves to be preserved and should be available to the public like all great works of art!

I avoid at all costs reading manga that was adapted from something else (Evangelion's manga, Cowboy Bebop's manga), as it rarely remains faithful to the original; the results can be very nasty. Same goes for Star Wars manga (or should I say "Sutaru Warasu Manga desu ka"?)
