Rarest Star Wars Items On Pawn Stars

ORIGINAL Hungarian STAR WARS ESB mini movie poster / FLYER POST-SOC

ORIGINAL Hungarian STAR WARS ESB mini movie poster / FLYER POST-SOC

THIS IS NOT A REPRINT!! THIS IS NOT A REPRINT! Original HUNGARIAN mini-poster / flyer for the second STAR WARS movie – EPISODE V – THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK – printed in 1982 in HUNGARY as a part of the AD campaign for the first release of the movie. This item is arguably the single rarest example of printed advertisement that was produced by MOKEP (the sole Hungarian film distributor during the communist era) for the first release of the STAR WARS movies in Hungary – alongside with the infamous “LSD” posters by Tibor Helenyi. They were giving out these flyers to the audience in the cinemas in 1981/1982 to promote the upcoming film – STAR WARS – THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (Birodalom Visszavag in Hungarian). The odd artwork with vibrant colors based on the famous scene with the imperial star ships chasing the Millennium Falcon – but with weird alternate versions of the Star Destroyer, the Tie fighters and the Falcon. The designer of the artwork is unknown. The back side of the flyer is actually a postcard – even if the audience never really used these for that purpose. Instead these flyers mostly ended up being glued into scrapbooks. The flyer nowadays is absurdly rare – only a handful of them were showing up on the market in the last 2 decades. If you are into rare STAR WARS items, this early OFFICIAL Hungarian Star Wars advertisement is definitely one. Please check my other auctions, where you can find ALL THREE original Hungarian STAR WARS posters. It is a very rare chance to have all three of them at once.
