Other Info: Original Russian release poster for the general public in September '90. Poster is known as the "rock head" flying thru hyperspace. It depicts Darth Vader looking ominously up at the Death Star while peering thru a meteor shower. The poster was created almost 15 years after the original release in '77, and because the artist had the luxury of probably knowing about the events after A New Hope, eg. (Vader with his helmet off in ESB / ROTJ) he incorporated that knowledge into this Star Wars illustration's look. The Russian Star Wars title "Звездные войны" is below the artwork in white lettering on a blue background, and the white distributors logo (dp) is on the right hand side at the bottom.
