See in the 3rd poster, unbeknownst to most fans....Darth Vader was also a trend setter.  He was one of the first to really make the preppie "collar-up" a popular fashion statement...way ahead of the 80's fashion fads to follow.

Thus making the vintage Kenner figure quite accurate. :D

Thanks to Hemish, I'm now the proud owner of this beauty (as well as a couple other new posters):



 8)

Still perplexed as to why this is an Australian exclusive, and not available anywhere else...  It's a real nice poster - glossy, made of high quality sturdy stock, real sharp.  So now I'm almost all caught up on the figure posters again.  Still need a Saga one that showed something like the first 48 or 52 figures (different than the one with 40 figures), which may have been an oversees exclusive as well.

But for now, I'm happy (and VERY lucky) to have this OTC poster.  Hemish, you're the man.  Thank you.  I owe you big time, mate!

That is a cool poster Matt.  The "figure collection" posters are always kind of neat, and it doesn't get better than an OTC one.  Plus, since we know that the line "ends" at 38 (aside from the exclusive Emperor), you've got the whole collection displayed on one poster.  The figure posters always kind of remind me of the vintage cardbacks, just enjoyed seeing the whole collection together like that.  Of course, when I was a kid in the vintage days, you had to actually use the cardbacks to know what was out, or what was coming out :P

And what was even stranger was the fact that figure number 10 the Darth Vader isn't being released here due to safety reasons.
The original deathstar clash vader was recalled here and otc #10 was canned but for some reason they still printed it on the poster that was distributed here.
That poster should be available all over as HAsbro Australia only had 20 of them and the gang at www.mousedroid.com managed to get 4 for his competition.
So they should be available elswhere.
Oh and Matt check your pm ;)
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Saw there is a new poster coming out, celebrating the DVD release:



Not sure if I'll get it or not, but it might be a neat addition.  I'd really like to get into collecting more Star Wars posters, but I want to be sure I have the room to display them too :).

There's a 39" x 27" "banner" (limited number, too) up at SWS.com. Looks ok, I guess.

I saw that "banner" too, and was tempted to order it.  I've held off so far, but it might be kind of neat.

Star Wars Style "D" is my favorite, and actually something I have yet to frame.  I can't decide exactly how to frame it yet- that's part of the problem.  Anyway, it is going to go in my dining room when it finally goes up.
You are starting to damage my calm.

By the way, anyone that sees the SW/Mardi Gras poster of Yoda sitting on the Bourbon St. street sign.  PLeeeeaaaassseee email me a link, or let me know, I really really really want this poster, and I know it's not cheap.

I've been to New Orleans different times, and stop in a lot of the poster stores but no one knows what I'm talking about.

 I know it's a tough find, so  any help would be appreciated.
