Other Info: This tram poster version of Helenyi's Return of the Jedi illustration was used as an advertisement in and around the Budapest public transport network. The small poster has the 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 Lambda-class T-4a shuttle and the Hungarian film title - "A Jedi visszatér" along with credits/taglines / MOKÉP symbol - "A világsikerű amerikai sci-fi Magyarországon / Rendezte: Richard Marquand" (The world-successful American sci-fi in Hungary / Director: Richard Marquand). This A2 sized poster is the third piece from Tibor Helenyi's famous Hungarian Star Wars poster series and it also has a Scout Trooper riding a speeder bike, an Imperial Star destroyer, and the right eye orb of the Darth Vader helmet image contains the Death Star II mobile battle station. On the back side of these tram posters, there is a scheduling grid 'Órarend' (Timetable) that can be used to write in the schedule of the trains, times, and places. (See pic below)

Variations*: There are two-sheet versions of this small poster, A0 size - 119 x 84 cm (46.9" x 33.1"), and also the rare, yet more common half-sheet A2 versions.
