    My favourite UK Star Wars cinema poster, from 1978 I think
    [​IMG]

    Here's the very, very rare 27th December 1977 Leicester Square British Premiere version of the very first poster.

    I bought a mini version of ROTJ polish poster at amazon.de. I love these weird piece of art.
    Anyone here knows a good site with cheap prices to buy posters here in Europe? I live in Luxembourg and I would like to buy more but at amazon.de they are too expensives.

    Personally I prefer the Chantrell artwork over the one from the Hildebrand Brothers.

    German audiences were familiarized with the Chantrell artwork through the Panini sticker album:

    (arrgh...my copies look better this)

    However, in Italy it looked rather like Flash Gordon, IMHO:

    These were the only two European sticker albums for ANH at the time AFAIK. For ESB there was a sticker album but it was exclusively available in the UK.

    I love the poster, but it's always cracked me up how ripped Luke is in it.

    It's hilarious to think of Hammil like that, and it really doesn't even fit Luke's character either.

    I think that is where they got the idea for POTF2 Luke Skywalker. download (1).jpeg For that I say it's not my favorite poster. Very unrealistic. I like the mid 90s posters/vhs sleeves. Especially ESB. with the stormtrooper, white hoth foreground and ATATs. star-wars-episode-5-empire-strikes-back-video-stormtrooper-movie-poster-WG1244.jpg

    I totally had that figure as a kid, haha.

    Oh yeah, I like the 90s stuff too (probably biased since it was my entry into the series.

    But yeah, these were great!

    Great post!
    Absolutely one of my favourite movie posters of all time, without a doubt. Pure art, and pure magic, like you said. Just love it, that's why I have framed in my house ;) It's also in the cover of the Star Wars The Original Soundtrack Anthology, one of my greatest items from my collection.

    Some of the Drew Struzan movie posters are in my top list too, but in Star Wars Universe I always had predilection for this Empire one.

    Pure love.

    I prefer the 1995 remastered edition. I still have them. Great covers.

    Special mention to those vintage posters. Always loved the character disposition, the colors and the sensation of big adventure.
