    Original Movie Posters

    I am an avid movie poster collector and I was wondering how many of you collect the original posters. I noticed that there is no forum for print media collectors and I thought that many people here would be interested in that.

    I've got a few. The A poster from ANH, a couple from ESB and ROTJ including "REVENGE." Plus a few others. The most recent was the IMAX AOTC.

    Honestly, I can't remember exactly what I have. Not enough room to display them all and it's been a while since I've unrolled the tube.

    I was just thinking the same thing. I collect Star Wars movie posters, I've got quite a collection so far. As we speak, I have an ESB rerelease poster from '83 coming to me in the mail. All of mine are full size 27x40. Here's what I have soo far...

    'TPM' Teaser
    'TPM' Regular
    'AOTC' Teaser'
    'AOTC' Regular
    'ANH' style A
    'ANH' Special Edition
    'ESB' style A
    'ESB' Special Edition
    'ROTJ' Special Edition

    I started collecting these years ago and recently have got back into them again.

    The one mylar I really want I can't afford. The original Star Wars mylar teaser. One day it will be mine....hopefully.

    Wow, that's impressive!

    I just bought a SW mylar not too long ago, but it had been kept rolled up, so their are cracks in several places along the edges. Not quite sure how to "repair" it.

    You really can't. You can try to put some archival tape on the back to help straighten out the creases, or you can go to an art gallery and have it mounted. Mounting usually makes the poster less valuable.

    Check out:

    They offer mylar sleeves to store your posters in. I haven't bought anything from them yet, I am in the process of figuring out a better way to store my posters. They seem really good. They basically store movie posters the same way comic book collectors store comics. I will probably by a bunch of sleeves and backings within the next few months.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    I have pictures of all the posters. But they are not of mine. Whenever I saw a picture of one I own, I copied it. Most of the posters are in tubes. If you want to see any picture let me know and I can post it.
