Anyone have one of these they’d be willing to part with?

Not parting with mine, but it's always easier with pictures.

 

Which version?

There is also this slightly different version that comes in B1 (and B2) size. I think it's possibly a Laserdisc release poster (no Eirin mark in the bottom right), but I'm not certain on that. Just posting for information purposes. Good luck in your search!

The second one.  Explosion style.  Still looking for this.  Anyone?  It would mean so, so much to me...

Still looking for one of these.  Anyone out there have one?  Willing to pay up for it.

Saw these on ebay and remembered that you were looking for this poster.

The first one seems reasonably priced, but isn't in great condition. Hard to tell the second ones condition (seems better), but the price.... Seems very high to me but I don't buy many Japanese posters so don't track their costs.

Yep, I saw both of those.  But I'm specifically looking for the B1 size.  I know B1's are more rare than B2's, but there has to be some examples out there somewhere that have survived.  I actually found someone who had the one I'm searching for, but he'd tragically misplaced it and I've never been able to locate another.

I did a search on some sites here in Japan but unfortunately nothing...  some B2s but no B1s.
I'll let you know if one pops up here.

This is actually the poster that got me into collecting Japanese material in the first place. It was in a mailer/flyer from Posteritati I think, and I was so entranced by the artwork that I HAD to have it. I have a number of B2's for Leon, but I've only ever found one B1 of the main artwork, and I've been at it for over 40 years (around 20 for Japanese material). It's not easy to find. Even ignoring the Integral release with the Eirin mark. Probably both equally difficult to acquire.

But I will keep you in mind if I can source another. Are you at all interested in either of the B2's?
