Yup and that is why I am a fan of the variant. It gives it something unique and not so pop off the wall. I like the subdued feel of it.

Juan's print was approved with it too so this might be the last we see of Slave Leia.
That's awesome!

Any hints on when we will see the release of Juan's Jedi?

very good question He actually tried both and he prefered the sabers to be like that. He didnt like that it was just a portion of the tip.
I think the sabers should have crossed over the border lines. That Darth and Luke are kind of the foreground of the whole piece, and it's a nice balance of composition. Would make more sense to me to have the lightsabers all there. But if Gabz tried both versions and liked this one better, I'm probably wrong.

I'm a bigger fan of the muted variant but the reg has a really old school trading card insanity to it. A Greatest Hits poster, but I think if folks want a licensed, titled poster for the entire trilogy in one spot, then this pretty much does the trick.

And really, so much kudos to another timed reg/limited var setup, always the ideal one in this hobby to me.

That sounds quite dirty actually

he went through both. He just didnt like it. It was a topic.

I also want to thank Germain Lussier for catching something no one else saw which we fixed just in time.

In my opinion it would have been better without the sections and just made one big mish mosh poster. I think by having it sectioned off each section should represent an episode. Just seems like a lot of stuff tossed in to fill out the background. Not really a fan of having the same character in a different pose 3 or more times either, but some people don't mind it. Still a cool print though.

The only characters that look to be full b/w to me are the ones at the top of each panel; Obi-Wan, Vader, and the Emperor.

I am really digging this, all the iconic pictures are there in one poster. Just curious why there is no movie block.
