PostSubject: Free Giant Vintage Starwars Figure Poster by Mogwai!   Tue May 04, 2010 2:22 pm

For those that haven't seen this yet Mogwai on RS spent a long time the other year putting together a giant vintage variants action figure poster together.

As he is sadly leaving the hobby he has decide to offer the poster images up for free to anyone who wants them as a parting gift Smile

He has also kindly allowed me to add the link for the download here on TIG as well.

I wish him luck for the future and want to say thank you for offering this out to the community Smile



Here is a little preview of the poster -

Its a great poster and even better parting gesture actually - Beware this poster is HUGE - you won't be able to do it justice on your inkjet! LOL

Definitely one to be professionally printed and framed - its really nice !

It is very nice indeed! And Joe is correct the poster is huge. Along with the file size! Smile

If nothing else, it's nice to have the digital file.

Hi Folks

I'm glad you all like the poster, I tried to make it as close to an original cardback as i could as that gave me fond memories as a child when looking in the shops for new figures.

I was limited in size to the printer at my work which prints of A1 straight of the roll onto glossy kodak paper, i still have the original framed at home. at 24" x 71" the figures are almost full size but it will go bigger before bluring as each image is 12mp.

I originall started it because i was fustrated that there was no poster out there for us variant collectors, the closest i found was a special pull out poster from a magazine (i forget what its called) but that didnt include alot of major variants.

I tell you it took me nearly 6 months in total as cutting each figure from its background in photoshop was painstaking to say the least.

Anyway i hope you enjoy it and good luck

The photoshop image is on the one i used but i used a raw image, The one i supplied in the zip is a flattened image but should be ok as i made sure there was no quality loss. The raw image was huge and had so many elements to it.
