We’ve reached our $125k stretch goal milestone and are moving on to a stretch goal that’s close to our hearts. At $150,000 all book backers will receive a recreation of the reverse-side of Kenner’s 1984 Star Wars is Forever mail-away poster (shown above) using Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection action figures and vehicles. The poster will be arranged and photographed by its original creator, Kim Simmons. Kim was the principal Star Wars photographer for Kenner between 1981 – 2000 and if you own any classic Kenner items, it’s a sure bet his photography is featured on it.
Incredibly, Kim has confirmed he still has some of the original elements he used in the 1984 poster and they’ll be included in his TVC recreation! The 18×22-inch poster comes folded in a mailer envelope, like the original.
