Ooops I meant B1. Not that it'll make much difference to most on here. Basically it means it's about the size of a standard US movie poster.

Here is someone else's B1 that took some pretty close ups. (Mine is in nicer condition though) :D

No mate, a regular from presale. That will satisfy me....for now.
I think i may chase aftermarket metal after seeing the drymounting incredible pictures today. And after learning the diff between metal and metallic. That drake metal is a beast fer sure.
What did you manage to get,dude? Holy grail metal?

Lovely - I have one of these too, it's my fave poster art for the film. Yours looks to be in superb condition! Pretty rare too...I haven't seen many come up for sale over the years.

I got one of these the other week from the 2001 cinema re-release...there's lots of reprints around but again, double sided versions seem quite rare
