Displaying Six Star Wars Posters In One

The History of Star Wars Original Filmcell from the Batcave Toy Room
Day 21 was not very eventful with my 31 Days to a Better Toy Collection Challenge.

I did however hang my History of Star Wars Original Filmcell plaque. The plaque itself shows the six main posters from each of the first six Star Wars films and contains an original filmcell from each movie.

My niece bought this for my birthday a few years back and although I do think that it's cool, it's rather pricey at an original retail price of $100. I do like having it in my collection, but I don't think I would have bought it on my own and would have opted for something else. Maybe something like a Blue Snaggletooth me thinks.

Vintage Star Wars One-Sheets and Posters from the Batcave Toy Room
This plaque has gone from my home office in various locations and ended up floating around the Batcave Toy Room. I was just not sure where to put it. Finally, it hit me and I found a place for it amongst the other actual Star Wars posters it represents.

I love vintage posters probably just as much as I love vintage toys, but I would need to start the Batcave Poster Room in order to display them all.

  1. Those posters really add to the Star Wars side of the room John I really like how they are all arranged. And seeing that Deathstar Playset in the pictures got me thinking about a U.K. made cardboard Deathstar set I saw on Youtube not long ago and made wonder if you have ever saw what am talking about or seen it before? Palitoy was the maker if am correct and it's crazy rare and pricey I bet.

    1. Thanks JBoy. I know exactly what you are talking about. Strangely, I have never realy had it on my want list, but they were only sold in the United Kingdom and were made of cardboard similar to playsets like the Cloud City Playset. So, only being sold in the U.K. and made of flimsy cardboard I am sure it makes it very hard to find a intact speciman. Very rare piece indeed.

  2. Love those posters. Been wanting to pick them up as well. Maybe one day, when I have the room to display them I will.

    1. No time like the present Mike. They are easily rolled and can be stored in tubes, but I hear you. Space can be the enemy of the collector.
