URGENT UPDATE.

G'day all. Please note that I have regrettably decided to pull the sale of these posters for the time being because looking at the posters it appears that there might be a slight difference between the paper used with some of them and I am not sure why (they came to me in two batches). The first lot was given to me directly when I was last at Lucasfilm and the second batch was sourced for me by a Lucasfilm colleague from some spare posters originally used at the Press launch. In fairness I'm not a specialist collector so I suspect I'm jumping at shadows but I feel that I would prefer to confirm the origin of ALL the posters before I issue them to collectors like yourselves.

For those people to whom I have issued refunds, please let me know if you didn't get a FULL refund and I will rectify the shortfall.

My sincerest apologies for being seemingly over cautious. I know that nothing untoward has occurred here but if a member asks me a question and I can't answer it satisfactorily, then I don't believe I am providing the appropriate service for goods purchased.

I hope this is acceptable..

Kind regards and best

MARK

Thank you for the update Mark! It's strange for sure why there's two different types of paper used for the two different batches of posters you've obtained.
I'm confident that you'll work out the details and keep us all up to date!

Good evening all - a quick update --

The five posters I felt might be an issue have been sent back. It will take about a week and a half for them to arrive back in the US. While it would be interesting to hear if anyone over there has an opinion I'm not sure there will be any reaction - after all this is a multi-billion dollar machine and I know there are far more pressing things to keep people occupied than trying to figure out if five little posters were printed on the same stock as a bunch of others.

As I said before, this was really just a perception of mine and I don't for one minute feel there is anything untoward going on. While collectors such as yourselves are very specific about the items they collect, the studio movie machine only sees items such as posters for what they are - a medium for promotion. Nothing more, nothing less.

Regarding the other posters I had, unfortunately those were sold before I even posted the new sale thread on Raven. I have kept one for myself (naturally) and I have the other one signed by Ford and Karen Allen. The problem is that these have been so astonishingly popular that they pretty much were sold the minute I said I had a few. All in all, a tiny number for a massive demand.

For those three or four Raven members who ordered posters from me, I guarantee that you'll be first to be contacted should I get replacements.

As an alternative, should those same members acquire posters from another source, feel free to contact me if you find a replacement of your own - I will gladly sign it for you free of charge…

Regards and best

MARK

Slightly off-topic but I'd like to jump in here and submit my support for Mark (Raats) being the official poster artist for Star Wars episodes VII, VIII and IX. Right now I can't imagine another professional out there with his level of artistry that could successfully meet the challenge to please all of us eager fanboys.

Think new Star Wars. Think Mark Raats

I received 2 of the REAL double sided movie posters in the mail yesterday.
They look very nice, but I will need a lightbox to display them properly.

Why two? One to display and one to invest?

I buy multiples of lots of Indiana Jones items. I am a crazy collector. (I must be missing something in my life to fill it with collecting) I buy to collect and enjoy, not sell. I have many rooms in my house and if I find two lightboxes, I will display them both. They are signed, so they both are unique.
I am not foolish enough to consider my hobby as an investment. I am sure when I die, my daughter will give everything away or sell it all for less than 1% of what I paid.

They are signed, but they are hard to get a picture of, since they are not yet framed.
They will look great in lightboxes!

Don't worry. Whoever it is I'm sure it will not effect the exculsiveness of them. However, ROB98374 seemed imply it was Mark Raats.

It would be nice to think that Mark is able to make further releases for fans of the work despite the 'Indiana Jones and the...'

Anyone know if the 4'x6' Raiders Imax Bus Shelter poster of the same Mark Raats artwork was also double sided, like the 27"x40"? Or was the bus shelter a single sided poster?

Come to think of it, where's Von Stalhein? This sort of thing's right up his alley.
You are absolutely right.

I just wanted to let Raven members know that in an attempt to clear some of the paper clutter from my studio I'm selling a number of pieces of original art as well as some very exclusive signed artists proof Giclee prints.

Included in the June catalog are only 10 x AP's featuring the lobby poster artwork I did for the IMAX release of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

If you would like to see what's on offer, please download the June Art Catalog from my store.

Cheers for looking and best wishes..

MARK
