Native Language: Star Wars
Date / Version: (1978)
Artwork by: General Mills
Poster Size: 47" x 67" (119.38cm x 170.18cm )
Condition: EX, poster is single-sided, rolled as issued, and has edge wear. Poster is printed in two sections on a heavy matte paper and is still a very nice presentable copy of this forty-year-old German promotional poster. The main body of both posters is still really nice, however the main defects of the poster are the corner tips which are a little ragged and missing small pieces of paper, plus edge wear that has caused some crinkles. It also has pinholes were it was hung and a piece of scotch tape on the back upper side of the right panel mending a border tear. The left side panel also has an small area that looks like someone pulled off a piece of tape and the top layer of paper went with it. Please click on the extra large supersize thumbnail image to the right, to see all the small paper defects.
- Near Mint "NM" - Poster is virtually unused and in premium original condition. May have the slightest edge wear from improper handling, and a random scuff mark or two.
- Excellent "EX" - Poster has minor flaws, may contain small scuffs and dimples, crinkles, minute edge tears, and wear, but highly presentable.
- Fine "FN" - Poster has obvious small flaws from being in circulation and handled, but it is still highly presentable and in nice condition. Most used theatrical posters from around the world will fall into this category.
- Good "GD"- Poster is acceptable, may have tears, folds, stains, tape on back, small pieces missing.
- Poor "PR" - Poster is in bad condition and it should be restored. Unless otherwise noted, we usually do not sell any posters in this condition.

Licensee - General Mills printed these posters for use in Germany and it was a poster rolled in foil with an inlay inside that says "Star Wars Super-Poster im Panoramaformat" 119 x 168cm.

Poster was printed in two sections, and the illustrated poster was sold rolled in German toy stores. It shows off most of the original characters and ships from the film. The left side poster shows the Tie-fighters, X-wing, and Stormtroopers firing their blasters down a corridor. The right side poster shows the rebel heroes in action pose, Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes, and Vader's helmet in the background.
