Here's a link to the autographed poster I take around with me.  Over 2 doz. original cast/crew (more now than when the pic was taken) I've since had Irvin Kirshner and a few others added.

Hope the link works:

It's a retail TXH poster mailed out to a handful of stores for the release of the Trilogy VHS in THX.

Very cool, BobaFett14! I have something similar myself. How do you display yours, or do you keep it in a tube for now? (always a work in progress..) ;)

No, custom black frame, but I can still take the poster out for the conventions.

It's in the back behind the wood post.  None of the guys in the pic is me. ;^)

It's close to a standard 27" x 41" (don't recall exact measurements) in landscape on thicker paper.

Tydirium,

How big was this poster?

Anyone get a crack at the vinyl teaser poster at SWS.com? I guess they went up this morning (Wednesday) and I just only now found out. Now there's just "item not available." I'm extremely pissed, since I have the other two vinyls from TPM and AOTC.  >:(

EDIT: NM, they posted it again today. I can go on living.

Anybody know anything about a hologram version of the Wal*Mart exclusive posters that were given out for the release of the Trilogy DVD sets? A buddy of mine is telling me that there were some limited edition posters made up in that set that were holograms... I've never seen/heard of anything like this, but if they are out there, I need to have them!!

So I finally recieved the vinyl banner from SWS. It's actually a vertical layout, unlike the TPM and AOTC ones. It's basically an 8 foot high version of the teaser poster on vinyl.  :-\

I'm glad to have it simply to say I have a complete set of prequel banners, but yeash, I really don't like that artwork still.

And it appears there's a giant 15x10' roadblock up to my complete set of PT banners:


Quote
Own a piece of history! These are the actual huge, horizontal banners that were hung in a limited number of movie theaters across North America. Now they're available in very limited numbers exclusively at StarWarsShop.com. This is not a reprint, but the actual vinyl banner--15 feet wide by 10 feet high--that you saw hanging in a theater in your galaxy. There will be some wear or slight damage, so each banner is sold as is and on a non-returnable basis.

Be one of the very few to own the movie-going public's first general introduction to Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. This theatrical teaser banner boldly conveys the main theme and spirit of the film: the transformation of the heroic young Jedi Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader. The dark cloud of his future is represented by the flowing cloak with features of the Dark Lord he is to become. Those features are even more pronounced than the shadow that attached to Anakin as a young boy on the teaser poster for Star Wars Episode I. Get this one while you can! Limit of one per customer.
[/i]

I'm still not big on the poster design, but I'm such a completist I couldn't not order it. And after the last banner showed up as a vertical design, this one is closer to what I wanted in the first place.

Hey guys, here is the official Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith poster that just came out mere moments ago. What do you guys think of it? I've heard mixed reports, but I really like it.

Also, here is where you can buy it so you can put it up in your room like I am.

Pretty cool stuff. This has been a pretty good week for Star Wars and the trailer is still coming out in only 2 days!
