Russian Comic Book Adaptation '94

While working on the Russian country poster section recently, I kept seeing this particular image show up in the search engine queue results - Russian Star Wars poster (Звездные войны плакат). I knew this image wasn't from anything theatrical, but once somebody declares it so on their internet list (without any research), and then it gets re-posted, re-blogged, tweeted, tumbled, and then shared, it becomes a factual Russian Star Wars poster. Anyway, to set the record straight, I found a group of collectors talking about this particular comic book image.

But we thought this was an interesting set issued by Yoplait in Spain. It has 50 self-adhesive stickers that came with the Yoplait yogurts or you could mail-in and receive additional stickers. When put together on the fold-out sticker sheet, it created a four piece larger poster. (86cm x 60cm)

Star Wars Style "D" One-Sheet - Prepress Proof

Today we have another printers proof from the Heidleberg printing press. Notice that the credits area and NSS property license, style etc. has not been added to this Star Wars style "D" one-sheet yet. Also below, there is another pic of the Star Wars style "D" one-sheet closer to finalization, but still has the color bars on the side. (Color bars are placed on a press sheet so that printers can make sure the colors are the correct density. By checking the blocks of color, they can make sure the press is placing the proper amount of ink on the paper to accurately reproduce the colors.
