It's expensive. But it's also the first SW poster that's made me smile in a long time. For me, it captures the delight of the first movie, and what it was like before there were so many more SW movies, a large number of which probably shouldn't have been made.

Ha! I didn't say I feel a need to own this. Just that it made me smile. :)

The MM Boba Fett from a few weeks back ended up with a run of 1600ish.

If we are taking bets I say this cracks 1000.

I think this will be pretty big—in part because of the high price, even. It keeps us here from buying, because we know that's more than it's worth. But more casual folk will think, "Wait...if this costs more than posters usually do, there must be a reason. I'd better get in on this!" Also, people will buy this one with the assumption that it will eventually be a series of three, so better to be safe and buy the first one, just in case the next two are really good.

My prediction: 1,138. (Just in case that actually happens, which would be awesome, I want to be on record as having called it.)

More than 1,000, but less than 3,000. - Paul (probably)

100 bills is way too much for this.

Timed is the way to go now, but make it a much smaller window, like an hour or something, and much cheaper...they would probably sell more copies.
Too much $ and too easy to buy = most collectors pass.
I don't really care for the artist's style and don't get the hype, like, AT ALL, but I probably would've purchased at $50 because Star Wars. :lol:
