Other Info: This poster is part of the United Kingdom's advance lobby poster set known as the "Heroes - Villains" display. It was distributed to the cinemas by the Marler Haley Ltd. Company, known for its exhibition setups and advertising. This poster is the right double crown of the set and it contains the pictures of the Imperial forces and nomadic creature villains in four blue and white circular movie still scenes. The first scene has a stoic headshot of Grand Moff Tarkin, the second shows Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers' initial assault aboard the Tantive IV. The third scene shows an attacking Tusken Raider, and the fourth has a squad of Stormtroopers walking down the Death Star corridor. Underneath the numbered pictures, it says, "Villains" across the bottom third of the poster set on the dark blue background. At the bottom in two columns, the written paragraphs are matched to the four pictures above and describe who the characters of the film are with descriptive commentary. This poster is rarely seen for sale anymore, except at auctions for high prices, but it is a favorite among collectors.
