These psychedelic Russian Star Wars posters were created in 1977 before the world really knew what Star Wars was all about. As far as Communist Eastern Europe was concerned it was a sci-fi western that took place on space ships. The posters have more of a polished 2001: A Space Odyssey look about them rather then the grittier Star Wars aesthetic. The Cat-Vader with the light saber hair is awesome! In addition to Cat-Vader & the Space Cowboy pictured above, there is a poster of Greedo some of the Cantina characters & a poster of an emotional Jabba! 

All of these posters are available right now on ebay with prices ranging from $300 to almost $4,000!

    Parra is one of my favorite artists, but I've never gotten the chance to see his work in person (other than Kidrobot's Pierced, that is).

    I don't think I need to explain why Coarse Toys have garnered a cult following. And the German duo's illustrations are just as alluring as their toys.

    I can abide by these Jawas! Tatooine's little hoodlums have been turned into Flatties by Flat Bonnie and will be available at NYCC, courtesy of DKE Toys. The 12 inch tall plushies are handmade and come with the Jawas' signature attire.
