Other Info: This insert contains the globally used Return of the Jedi campaign artwork by Kazuhiko Sano. It has the rebel cast with Luke Skywalker and his lighsaber, Han Solo and his pistol drawn, and Princess Leia in her "slave bikini" outfit, standing front and center of the collage. Rounding out the picture is the gangster Jabba and his den of thieves to the left, and the pilot Lando Calrissian and Wicket the Ewok are on the right. Darth Vader, the Death Star and the starry space background are found in the background. The Return of the Jedi logo, in red, is below the illustration and at the bottom is the cast and credits area. The 20th Century Fox symbol and PG ratings box are also both found in the lower portion of this slender vertical poster. (Tag style info in the bottom border includes - NSS # 830013 / Property disclaimer/ GAU Union bug / Litho In U.S.A. / Style B)

Bootlegs*: On this insert look for the contrast of coloring on the background images, and also lookout for how the illustration is cropped. There are also new and improved digital reprints / bootlegs that are being generated and passed off as originals. They look identical to vintage ones, except coloring is off and they are nice, new, and crisp, when in fact they should look a little more aged, handled, and worn.
