After seeing Shawn's wonderful framing limelight and reading the wonderful one over on RS, I decided that it's high time to start our own. Wink

I went on a bit of a framing rampage this weekend. The local hobby/craft store was having an insane sale this weekend so I decided to splurge a bit. I've got many more framing projects on my To Do List, but these three won out this round. Very Happy

The first poster on the left is the Celebration 5 Boba Fett poster. I just love this imagery and think it's a striking design. The Celebration info just adds to the overall image IMO.

The middle poster is a mylar Darth Vader poster that was used at Burger King here in the US in conjunction of the release of Episode 3 in 2006.

The poster on the far right is a Episode 3 version of the Star Wars Style D poster, or the Circus Poster as it's been called sometimes. I've wanted this poster for awhile as I have the original SW Style D poster and the imagery on this is such a cool homage to the original. I picked it up at C5 and even had the artist, Matt Busch, sign it for me. Very Happy

Cool prints, guys! Shawn, what is that print of Luke assembling his lightsaber with Vader in the background? I've never seen that before, and that is freaking rad! Gam Guard

Very nice! How much were the frames?
I've always wanted to frame some posters but the prices of the frames completely put me off.

Thanks and I 100% agree Very Happy

The print is called "Knight of Passage" and it was done by Jerry VanderStelt.

It can be ordered here

They have a paper and canvas version with each limited to 150.

For the two prints I ordered from hollywoodposterframes.com. I found their pricing to be quite reasonable for archival materials and they have some of the best communication I've had in dealing with a website.

For the ad slick I used americanframe.com and it was also a good experience. You do have to put together some of the materials from them, but it isn't too difficult.

Star wars rocks ! got this from the fan club maybe 15 years ago , came with a little tag signed by Hugh Flemming ( artist ) and numbered . There really just isn't enough wall space for all the prints I like , but eventually would like to get the Adam Hughes Leia , and a Mcquarrie docking bay 94 . Those are the only other 2 I would want up . Well unless someone gives me a "happy birthday star wars poster" yeah , ok , I would put that up too .
