Sounds like fun. May I bother you for a link kind sir?
Love your work SkyderHouseMafia. This was the sort of thing I had in mind when I started collecting digital posters. I was going to wait until I had scoured the entirety of the Heritage Auctions site to re-upload my collection but have been slack (I’m not even close). No Solo posters and many probably missing from R1/TLJ, but here is the latest Posters.rar anyway if you want to update links and check it out (1.92 GB). I have already replaced quite a few with superior examples from Heritage Auctions. I haven’t seen everything you have put up yet, but here are some suggested updates/additions off the top of my head:
Star Wars Style A has glue marks, the latest rar has 3 from HA that I think are better overall (not sure which printing they are though)
SW '82 Re-release with no bubble
More textless transparencies, including Star Wars Style A without droids (colour corrected version by NeverarGreat)
ESB Style C (Australian) with fold lines removed (courtesy of CarboniteSolo). This could use a colour correction or at least a bump in saturation
I believe ESB Unknown was an unused poster design and I’m almost positive it was done by Tom Chantrell, although I can’t remember where I got that information
ROTJ SE is horizontally stretched, better one from HA (Date says March 14, not March 7 so I guess there are variants of these)
Struzan Caravan of Courage with no fold lines
SW Style B 15th Anniversary less blown out/more detail
1995 VHS “Faces” posters
I often find it hard to pick one best example, I’m glad it’s not me doing the choosing!
I am looking for a hires version of the cbs box set art. The poster mashup one. And I know CrplHicks uploaded a version of the Vader in the star field, but it has so serious moire pattern on it. Has anyone cleaned it up?

Sweet! Looks good to me, thanks CarboniteSolo.
Good work CarboniteSolo. Any chance you could remove the creases from this poster?
Those corrections are great too Neverar, any more you feel like sharing would be most appreciated.
Found the mother lode: Heritage Auctions
I’m quite sure this is the source of almost all the best vintage posters on the 'net. It took me a while because they don’t come up in Google image searches when you are searching for large images. You have to go to the page and click the image to actually get hi-res. Pretty sure I’ve just been uploading cropped and compressed versions of many of these posters. I’m going to wait on uploading the next rar archive until I’ve sorted through all of these.
Finally found my holy grail too, it’s from a transparency and needs correction, but check it out: Tom Jung’s style A without the droids!
A tinfoil hat and a high horse is not a good look.
Yeah, I’m going to look the other way. Somebody PM me when he’s gone.
^ VERY early.

In ROTJ, Leia is captured by the ewoks while wearing her assault garb.
When Han and Luke arrive to be eaten, she is wearing a medieval gown.
Did the Ewoks happen to have one that fit her? Do you think she had just accepted that this was her life now? Her lover and that other guy she kissed are still in the woods being chased by the Empire on their way to destroy a planet killing weapon and she has gone through a wardrobe change. Do you think she intended to take a native lover and live as one of them until Han/Luke showed up?
Normally I’d chime in here, cynically opining that they just did it to sell more action figures. But they didn’t even make one with that outfit. At least not in the vintage collection.
Howdy Liam. Love your work, especially the earlier stuff that is mostly triangles.

Think of LBJ as many people can compare him to Kobe and Jordan but the widespread conversation of “is he” and a consensus that he’s one of the greatest hasn’t arisen yet.
That took me longer than it should have. LBJ means somebody else to old people. You can praise LeBron and Kobe all day long, but there is only one GOAT in that conversation.
Off whom, Olly Moss? If so I would also love a PM with links. Also interested in the fan art folder you mentioned in your thread. Cheers!
^ Wrong thread? That definitely qualifies as Awesome Star Wars art. (Better copy in my rar archive if you have it - look in Textless for TESB).
The Tusken poster definitely looks like it belongs in the set, but Greedo looks a bit half-finished. He doesn’t have the same amount of shading and detail on his jacket.
JEDIT: Now that I’ve looked at more of his stuff, it does seem legit. Some of his other non-SW posters are very similar.
Larger one here: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/7d/47/81/7d478125639a9ec0dcb03a4a539f1389.jpg
I wonder why it isn’t in the Mike Mitchell Series? I find it hard to tell if those larger ones are actually larger or just blown up from the ones on the Mondo site.
JEDIT: Just noticed the Tusken isn’t there either.
Suspicious suspiciouscoffee, is Suspicious.
TIE pilots seem to have much smaller helmets these days. Or much longer necks.
Love that Rosado poster, just found it yesterday. Seems you’ve found some of the IMAX AMC ones in better quality than I did, good stuff!
If they are the vectorized ones made by Man_Overboard, they have missing detail and some spelling mistakes. Still good though. Star Wars is the only original one I have found above 853x1280, at Gizmodo. 1280 is probably fine for Kodi/Media Center, just image search Google for “Olly Moss Star Wars” using those dimensions.
More like SUPER High-Res. If only I could get one-sheets from the OT in this quality…
JEDIT: Collecting Rogue One stuff ATM, will upload a new rar soon.
Thanks crpl_hicks, textless would be great! JEDIT: Though you don’t need to post it in four different threads
I found a poster of the same image a while back:
While I enjoyed Q2’s edit of TPM (especially the first 30 minutes), the major problem with it is that a no-name pilot destroys the control ship at the climax of the movie. L8wrtr’s edit has Anakin doing this, edited to make his actions seem deliberate and confident. It is a needed payoff.
I also didn’t like Q2’s removal of Qui-Gonn influencing the chance cube. His removal of galaxy-shrinking cameos and OT spoilers is great though. You really don’t miss the droids and the less Sidious shown in TPM the better. He also removes even more annoying moments from Jar-Jar, Anakin and Padme than L8wrtr does, and removes the battle droid voices entirely.
The best edit of TPM would be a combination of these two.
So, yep… over 48 hours later and no toothache.
I hear it’s full of Americans.
