Star Wars attack of the clones
« on: July 13, 2020, 08:25:13 PM »
Hi there I'm new to poster collecting and I have just purchased this star wars attack of the clones poster but I have noticed that the bottom part of my poster looks different than the once I've been seeing online is that an issue? I've bought it from a well-known poster shop just wanted to double-check as I paid quite a bit for it. Thanks!

It's a bit hard to see the detail from your photo. Is it the DTS logo that is on the left hand side in the online image, but the right hand side on your poster?

Does it measure 27 x 40" and is it double sided?

Which poster shop did you buy it from?

Hi yes, it's 27X40 and Double-sided, Just wondering why the logos are so different from other posters I've seen online, then it got me worried.

Thanks for the extra photos.

It looks like you have what emovieposter have described as a 'Style C'. More info in the auction listing here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/14700543.html

Note that the style B looks very similar to this poster but does not have a rating (and is not marked "style C" at the bottom). It may be that the style C was printed as a sort of updated version of the style B, to include the ratings, but if that were true, we would have seen many of them, and we have only seen three in the past, MAKING IT EXTREMELY RARE!

Looks legit to me from the pics.

Can't really say a lot on this one. I do not believe it ever made it into wide circulation and is far rarer than the style B yes but does pop up from time to time. Value wise, it really does not seem to command a premium over the style B normally though there have been times like the one Tob linked that went for $99. Normally I've seen them in the $20 range but honestly do not pay much attention to them so may have missed a bunch too.

It is essentially the same as the last version of the style B with the property of line at the bottom and the only difference that I am aware of is that the sound logos have all been moved to the right side and for the added PG box.
