Artist: Tom Jung
Important Added Info: Note that this poster contains different Tom Jung art that includes Lando Calrissian. THIS EXACT ARTWORK DOES NOT APPEAR ON ANY U.S. POSTER, ALTHOUGH SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR DOES APPEAR ON SOME NON-U.S. POSTERS, making this poster especially desirable to collectors! In addition, note that there are two versions of this poster. On one, the title has white letters, and on this poster the title has black letters (and we are auctioning the "white title style" in a separate auction!). The two styles appear to be of equal rarity, and both are from the first release. Note also that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

This auction is one of 520 auctions in eMoviePoster.com's special "all-Star Wars" auction! Where did this remarkable selection come from? It all started when we were contacted by a VERY long time collector of Star Wars posters, who told us he wanted to sell his entire collector, and we started with his 296 (which included many of the most rare and desirable ones) and we then asked our other 2,500+ consignors if they had any other Star Wars posters (or related items) that we did not already have, and the result is this amazing collection of 520 auctions, and every item will have a new owner once the auctions end, because all truly have no reserve. If one tried to duplicate this collection, it would surely take MANY years to do so!

The item(s) in THIS specific auction you are viewing right now came from the longtime collector who first consigned to this auction. Here are a few words directly from him about his collection:

"It has been a true labor of love for me to collect Star Wars movie posters/paper over the past 38 years. When I saw the movie for the first time it captured my imagination like no other and started a fascination that will last the rest of my life. I certainly enjoyed playing with the original toys, but only wanted to collect original movie posters because of my general love of movies.

Looking back, it has been a sweet ride. Growing up in the north Midwest, I didn't have great access to such collectables, which was part of the challenge. I started exploring what older movie theaters would have for sale, sometimes getting lucky enough to find something really nice. Before the internet, I remember searching both local and national newspaper classifieds, and movie warehouse catalogues for poster sales. I was self-taught with researching all the different styles and sizes available, so whenever I would come across a new poster it was very exciting.

I frequented hobby stores for advice on collecting and what other resources were available. When I found the Kilian checklist poster, I of course had to try and acquire the complete list. Two other great references I used were the Butterflied & Butterfield Star Wars Reference Collection and The Star Wars Poster Book, both of which opened my eyes to the selection of unique sizes and foreign posters available. Through the years the foreign posters were often much harder to find so I gained more satisfaction whenever I acquired one of those.

I have thoroughly enjoyed researching, collecting, and reminiscing with these posters over the past several decades and am now ready to pass them on for others to enjoy. I hope they fill in many frustrating gaps in other collections!"

Condition: very good. The poster has minor fold and border wear. It is otherwise in nice condition and it displays quite well!
