Hi Guys i have set up this thread to discuss the uber cool Vintage Star Wars Chirashis Smile

For thos who dont know Chirashis are also called Japanese flyers or handbills and were handed out out movie theatres in Japan. They are a hugely collectable in the Far East and some of the rarest can fetch sums running into thousands of Dollars! Thankfully the Vintage Star Wars Chirashis are relatively cheap to pick up and look fantastic on display. To note most Chirashis are approx 7" x 10" (18cm x 26cm).

To find out more check out John Alvarez's awesome Guide on The Star Wars Collectors Archive

http://theswca.com/images-speci/chirashi/chirashis.html

To kick things off here are the 2 Chirashis i have picked up so far Smile

The next Chirashi i own is pretty hard to find (i have only come across this example so far) its a limited ESB / ROTJ Double Bill and isnt listed on theswca Guide.

As my camera is hosed the only picture i can do is on my mobile so im apologise for the poor quality Sad

I keep mine in plastic sleeves in a binder with a lot of modern ones. Its not the best way to display them but its easier to flip through.
As for the soundtrack chirashi, I'm not sure how hard to track down it is. I found mine in a lot with the fan club chirashi on ebay, but I've never seen another come up for sale.

I'm keeping all ine in the sleeve and envelope they were sent in for the moment until I find something better.

Who edited my post above with the link to the website? lol! Theres some killer ones from there I want, but Ebay is a tad cheaper for the easier to find ones. I think the most I paid for any was $20 but that was for the whole set, program and flyers for Drag Me To Hell. Heres another place I found, but not sure how good they are.
