“Both infamous and anonymous at the same time, Bounty Hunters are far more than mercenaries for hire – they’re heirs to a professional legacy – an ancient brotherhood with a glorious history.” -Anonymous
The amount of time it took to read the above line is roughly how long the bounty hunters were on screen in Empire Strikes Back. Think about that for a second; what other characters in cinema history can boast that claim? On the deck of the Executor, Darth Vader tasks six Bounty Hunters to find the Millennium Falcon. As he says this, one Bounty Hunter growls and one says “As you wish” and that’s it. No massive firefight ensues, nor is there an origin given and hardly any of them are ever seen or talked about again! They are merely seen standing, yet they are some of the most popular characters in the entire Star Wars Universe.
For this reason, we chose the Bounty Hunters as our next poster release and decided to give them the royal poster treatment. Instead of doing a traditional large format poster featuring all of them together, we would produce six character posters that could either be displayed as a group or individually.
The posters are on sale now and just to clarify, you get ALL THREE posters in the set. When you make the purchase, you will also get first crack at buying Wave 2 of the Bounty Hunters. When checking out, make sure your contact email is updated as that is the email we will send the information to regarding the Wave 2 advanced purchase. We also just confirmed that Wave 2 will be revealed on G4′s Attack of the Show very soon, so keep a look out.
