Other Info: This transit ad is another movie tie-in poster from Japan to promote a "Stamp Rally". (This stamp rally, by the Kantō Railway (関東鉄道) station, tasks the rider with finding all of their train station stamp locations along their private railway system in the Ibaraki Prefecture). On the left, this poster has a gradient gray background with the character Queen Amidala, in her Naboo palace gown and her tagline from the "One Series" themed posters - (One Love - One Quest / ひとつの 愛 - ひとつの 探求). The series logo is found at the top (エピソード1) and the Star Wars logo in black is found at the bottom. These "One Series" posters were only used overseas as part of the international advertising campaign for Episode I. At the right it says, "Let's fill in 25 stamps - Come on, you can do it!" "Kanto station stamp rally in progress". The rest of the information on the right has the rail stamp locations, that riders can visit and collect stamps in their passport books. The poster was posted in public areas, usually on commuter routes and waiting areas, around Ibaraki Prefecture, the region just North of Tokyo.

Variations*: There are multiple copies and different sizes of these film tie-in posters. They contain different "Episode 1 - One Series" characters and advertisement information on them, printed up by different agencies in Japan.
