After reading the experiences a lot of you guys had with the ROTJ posters that SWS.com was selling a while back (and after seeing the teaser poster, which I was not impressed with at all; great concept with poor execution, IMHO), I decided that I did not really need the teaser poster after all. I never bought the (again, in my opinion, poorly executed) AOTC teaser, but I did buy both theatrical prequel posters and the Episode I teaser from the SW Fan Club over the years, and I *never* had a problem with them arriving damaged.
All three posters (I know the first two for TPM came out when the FC was still under the aegis of Fantastic Media; I can't remember who had control of the FC during AOTC...probably my crackhead neighbors) were shipped in heavy tubes, with the posters sealed inside a plastic baggie tube inside, with bubble wrap around the poster and bag, and with bubble wrap at each end. There was not a single dent, crease, tear, or anything approaching damage on any of the three posters.
And now, even though LFL is "running the show", *THEY* can't send a poster out without completely destroying it. Pathetic. Go down to the post office, spend a little bit of money on decent mailing and packing materials, and send out mint items so you can actually keep customers instead of cheaping out. For what you're charging for shipping, you should be shipping things in heavy materials and not plastic bags with a twist tie around them that say "FRAJIL...PURTY PICTERS ENSIDE."
(I seriously hope they figure out what is going on by the time the Struzan poster is released in the spring)
