Would someone please help me identify this Action Figure poster? I have no information to help and I have spent time looking for an answer with no luck.

I'll do some checking for you, but from the layout & inclusion of common variants e.g. orange & brown snake Yoda, it looks very much like an unofficial check list poster!

I have a copy of it as well. It's on 8 1/2" x 11" (21.6 cm x 27.9 cm) paper. I don't know if mine is a scan of the original? It is a very poor quality print. I bought mine on ebay a few years ago for just a couple of dollars.

I can't read what it says on mine, it is just too poor of a print.

As yet, I haven't come across a reference for a poster the same as yours scratch

I still think it's an unlicensed product, but what is the history behind this piece?

PostSubject: A couple more pics   Sun Feb 10, 2013 12:23 pm





These pics are 1 looking through and the backside. The back side has yellowing conducive with aging paper and this paper is not thin printer paper either.
*This is a stretch but is it possible that 20th Century Fox or maybe Hasbro has old KENNER achives of Licensed products??? If someone has a contact with someone at any of these 2 places or I can research it. I don't want to step on anyone's toes so let me know if you have contacts before I run off and contactnthem Rolling Eyes

-Also I'm thinking this may have been a promotional poster? Just a thought.

It's cool, but absolutely custom (fan) made. Kenner made no distinction on colors of Snakes, Hair color on Luke, etc..

Keep in mind that two major variants are debatable (Yoda Snake, Ugnaught Smock) so it's even more unlikely.

Not the first time to see a custom figure poster either.

All that said, it's still a nice looking one!

I assumed this was fan made when I bought it. They listed all the figures in alphabetical order starting with the numbers and ending with Yoda. Then they realized that they forgot Romba and Salacious Crumb and stuck them on the end. Which just seemed a little odd.
Some of the lighting on the figures was not the best, and the Photoshop work looks a little rough around some of the figures.
My copy is very dark with the black background. Almost to dark.

Other than that, it was an interesting little poster.

SithLord2013, your poster seems to be much clearer than mine. Yours could be an original from the guy who created it. I pretty sure mine is just a copy. Very Happy

Cool and interesting poster. I like how they show the two Luke Jedis with capes floating behind, and the arrangement of the removable limbs C3PO too.

He does indeed have more of a vibrant color to him. As DarthBerizing has stated;

"It's cool, but absolutely custom (fan) made. Kenner made no distinction on colors of Snakes, Hair color on Luke, etc..

Keep in mind that two major variants are debatable (Yoda Snake, Ugnaught Smock) so it's even more unlikely."
