Posters my dad brought home

I know I had a poster similar to this one if not exactly like it. Judging by the lack of images I could find (hence the smaller image) I'd guess it's rare.

Around the time of Jedi's release, my dad brought home a dozen or so poster-sized still shots from the film on photo-quality paper. My sister & I divided them up & hung them on our bedroom walls for many years (I kept them up longer than she did though). I've got as many here as I could recall, but I know a few are missing. There were definitely close-up shots of Han Solo & Princess Leia, as well as a wide shot of the Emperor's guards standing at attention for Vader's impending arrival. Seems like there may have been one or two others as well, but I can't remember for sure. Since I have no idea how widespread these were it's possible I was one of the few people to have them.

My dad brought home both of these posters, and gave them to my sister & I. She got the one that has Arnold pictured on it, and I got the other.

Imagine having that on your wall as a kid. I was 10 when my dad brought this home. Also around this time he stopped working in the theatre business & had to find another job. So this was the last poster he got for me.
the giraffe's rating:

Before I was born & well into the '80s, my dad worked as a film buyer. As a result he got to see all kinds of movies before they came out & had access to posters, buttons, t-shirts, and other promotional items. As his children, my sister & I benefited as he'd often bring home posters for us which inevitably wound up hanging on our bedroom walls (he brought us buttons & t-shirts too btw).

Most of them weren't well taken care of (we were kids after all) & have since been thrown away, but fortunately I still remember most of what we had. So here's a little list of all the ones I could remember. Listed more or less chronologically.

By the way, I got the idea to make this list after seeing Xanadon't's On My Walls list. Thanks to him for inspiring me to put this together.
