Important Added Info: Note that in March of 2017, we auctioned an example of this poster that was in similar condition (but was not the same poster as this one), and that poster auctioned for $8,320! That caused our consignor of this poster to decide to send it to us, and it is the second example of this poster that we have auctioned (and it may be a long time before we are consigned another, given its very large size and given that likely a low number of them were made in the first place, and any that were put up on walls surely did not come down!). Note that in the 1980s, studios were printing fewer and fewer non-one-sheet sized posters (they were phasing out inserts and half-sheets, and instead of three-sheets and six-sheets, they were printing vinyl banners, which were much more sturdy). That has always made the three-sheets and six-sheets on this title far more rare than those from the first two Star Wars movies (Episode IV and V). The fact that this second example of this 24-sheet (as we said above, we previously auctioned a different one) survives is nothing short of amazing, because surely, far fewer of these were made than for the previous Star Wars movies. Also note that because printing technology had advanced by 1986, three-sheets were printed on a single sheet, six-sheets were printed on two sheets, and this twenty-four sheet was printed in 6 sections (designed to overlap). This was a big plus, because 24-sheets were first printed in 24 sections and later 12 sections, but that meant lots of pieces overlapping, which gave more opportunity for tears in the borders, and possibilities of printing mismatches! Also note that this poster needs to be sent in an oversized flat package, which measures roughly 17" x 23" x 2", so it will cost more to send than items that fit in our standard flat packages, especially if they are sent to non-U.S. addresses.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster was printed in just 6 sections (see above). This means that it has far fewer folds than older 24-sheets, which were printed in 12 sections (or 24 sections for really older 24-sheets). The poster almost surely was never used, and it is in REALLY nice condition, with just some very minor wear (see our image).
