Other Info: Image of Vader's head in the background, with a fierce looking green warrior - presumably Jabba the Hutt, holding a spear towards the bottom left hand side of the poster. At the top there is an Imperial shuttle and the Hungarian Return of the Jedi title and credits. This A2 sized poster is the third piece from Tibor Helenyi's famous Hungarian Star Wars poster series and it also has a Stormtrooper riding a speeder bike, an Imperial Star destroyer, and the right eye of the Darth Vader image contains the Death Star. Tibor saw the films, but while working on the oil paintings, he could only rely on his memories, so his works represented the gist of the movies, but he included and created new visions to go along with what was actually in the film. These painted compositions are very surreal and expressive, while reflecting the popular visual world of the 1980's - that included the world of illustrated comics, and the popularity of the growing sci-fi genre. (Thanks to the Tibor Helenyi Estate Auction for the oil painting info and pics below)

Variations*: There are also two-sheet versions of this poster, A0 size - 119 x 84 cm (46.9" x 33.1"), and also a smaller version called a tram poster. (See pic below)
