Luke Skywalker brandishes his lightsaber whilst Princess Leia confronts peril with blaster pistol primed, in an exciting transition of Star Wars: A New Hope’s iconic poster into 3D fine pewter. On its independent backdrop, attached by hidden magnets, C-3PO and R2-D2 look on as X-Wing squadrons above Tatooine stream towards the Death Star, a spectral Darth Vader looming menacingly.
A limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered pieces worldwide.
The promotional poster, designed in 1977 by the Brothers Hildebrandt in conjunction with its theatrical release, not only captures the operatic nature of Star Wars: A New Hope, it pays tribute to the best in 1930s science fiction visual imagery. Exaggerated in the extreme, it leaves an indelible impression on an entire generation.
