At C3, my wife actually thought that exclusive sculpted poster was really cool, and tried to get one, but by the 2nd day they were sold out.  I've been checking eBay, but I refuse to pay $80.

Quick question.  Why did the C3 Vader poster sell for $20 on the code 3 website, while the other posters are $79?

Twofold:

1) that was the price at C3
2) it is a mini poster (about 4x5) much smaller than the next round of posters coming which will be about 8x11.

I Hope this helps,

Jesse,

I feel your delema, believe me.  I broke down and paid $89 for mine of ebaY as I thought there would be no way in the world there would be an opportunity to get it for cheaper.

Boy was I wrong ::).

The poster is great but stupid me overlooked the fact that it was in fact a mini.  This piece would have looked much better imo if it was the same size as the sculpted posters to come.

Some of the posters have started shipping, mine has not thus far.

Yeah, that's what we all thought out at C3 as well.  But the bright side though, for avid completists at least, is that since this one doesn't match the rest, a lot of folks felt "safe" picking one up as a souvenir from C3, and not necessarily feeling like they needed the rest to "complete the set", since they're a totally different size.

Sorry to hear you resorted to eBay Matthew.  Sorry to hear you didn't get one out there either Jesse.  Wish I'd known others wanted this piece when I first walked up to their booth on Thursday and there was no line at all.  :-\  Hell, based on that, I didn't even think they were gonna sell out of the things.  Boy was I ever wrong.

Sweet! Just checked my account status and my Vader poster has shipped. I requested standard shipping so it should be awhile before I receive it, I'm looking forward to it.  8)

Just received an email from Code 3 on the A New Hope Style D poster.

Quote
This item will go up for sale in the starwars.com shop during the month of May. It will go up for sale on the Code3.net site in the month of June . We will make sure you are the first to know when it is for sale.

Style D
This poster was produced for the 1978 summer re-release of Star Wars. It is reported that the A New Hope Style D poster is one of George Lucas' favorite Star Wars posters. All the detail of this unique poster has been captured by sculptors in hand painted; quality cold cast resin. Many hours were spent and much care was taken bringing this poster into this new format, never sacrificing the look of the original poster art.

New Photos!   8)
