Should Bottlebux people had received an email alerting them to an early chance at a VAR? I have a bottlebux account and didn't get one (not in spam either). Did you need a certain amount of bottlebux or something?

The piece is exactly how Matt wanted it and we love it. Going off the earlier reserve, thinking many people enjoy it as well.

Fair enough. Don't want to force the issue

For whatever reason, as much of a fan of Star Wars I am, there's never been a single poster I've loved for Star Wars. This one actually is the first. I love the reg on this. It's a perfect SW poster IMO

Yep. I'm talking strictly screenprints, so the Struzan is out in this case. I find Olly's to be great concepts, but ultimately too plain for me. For some reason, no Star Wars prints just have really connected with me. This one just does for whatever reason

DOUBT IT


IIRC the way it works is: if you have setup a Bottlebux account and purchased something, then you get the e-mails.

That's my main issue... I assume there was plans for the credit block, but it didn't work as is common with these posters.

This was my first reaction as well. I also think the slash area comes off a little hard to read on the left . If you didn't know that image, it's hard to tell that's part of a blaster because it's not really connected to Leia without the hand and arm showing. I couldn't figure it out on my phone screen, although that is probably not an issue IRL. On the subject of hands, Obi-Wan looks like he's holding his saber pinched between his thumbs :? . I can't tell what's happening there, but something is off. I also find your lack of Millennium Falcon disturbing.

I think it does succeed there. I like the overall look.

To be fair, this is the original with the credits:

Also, this wasn't even the 'original' poster...the original (after some teasers that predated the release) is the infamous design by Tom Jung with Luke holding the saber up. This one you are talking about is known as Style C poster, which was only intended for international releases long after the initial release in May of 77, not in the US. Prob the most faked SW poster of all time, only 1k originals produced.

Also, FB experts will always sass off, but hard to argue the unequalled merit of the Chantrell OG.
