Poster Size: 29" x 41" (73.66cm x 104.14cm)
Condition: EX-NM, poster is double-sided, rolled as issued, and has some edge wear from improper shipping. It also has some overall handling wear. Poster is printed in Japan on a heavy glossy paper and the colors are still very vibrant and vivid. This large poster is a very neat example from the Japanese theatrical release of the The Phantom Menace. Please click on the extra large supersize thumbnail image to the right, to see all the small defects.
