If only I'd been at work I wouldve been able to dedicate the time necessary for this research ;)

Old school, brute force detective work.  Searched on "vintage fantasy poster" and flipped over the image results.  Then just started scrolling down until I saw *something*.  I scrolled down 2-3 screens worth and stopped on this:



Not sure why, but it just felt like it would be the style of the mystery poster from the description.  When I clicked on it, Google showed me a few more similar images and bingo bango I noticed the two distinct blobs in the blurry video screen cap -- one for the rubble, one for the dude man. 



The whole thing took about 35 seconds from the time I started typing "vintage fantasy poster" into Google.  And by the way, the other poster I stopped on was done by the same artist. 8)
