I contacted HCG directly but they weren't much help. :hanging: I would really appreciate it if someone here could point me in the right direction.

It measures 24x24 and the japanese translation is gojira (obviously) but there is no sig, numbering, or markings of any kind, front or back. Thanks for any help anyone can give. :notworthy:


I got one of these too. No idea what it is, but it's nice. Would be great to be able to put an artist to it.

You know, I never noticed it before, but the car on the BTTF is bothering me. It looks like the front is at a different angle than the windshield and door, and my brain can't unfold it in a way that makes sense. :?

The flames are also weirdly overlaid the wheels and front of the car. Definitely janky, always bugged me.

Don't have a source, but I read somewhere that Struzan painted the time machine that way so the poster wouldn't spoil the big reveal.

Movie taglines are the best.

Nothing will ever top Robocop's for me, but still...

I mean, yeah, because the Struz is a classic, but that's a pretty epic 80s poster though. Was that actually released as a onesheet because I've never seen that image before?

I've always noticed both those things. I'd love to hear Struzan explain it.

Sound probable, I guess. If you look at the poster for II and III the Delorean is much more identifiable.

It was an unused concept poster, it sold for £700 hammer (+BP). I think it’s a really cool poster!
