Olly Moss Original Star Wars Trilogy for Mondo

British poster artist Olly Moss shows his nerdy love for the original Star Wars trilogy in a trio of new posters he created for collectible art house Mondo.

The prints, revealed exclusively by Wired.com in the first three frames of this gallery, go on sale at a random time Monday. They are the first in Mondo’s wildly popular Star Wars series to be crafted as traditional, theatrical one-sheet movie posters.

The new posters show colorful silhouettes of C-3PO, Darth Vader and Boba Fett that are filled in with detailed imagery from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. To create original artwork for such rabidly adored films was daunting, Moss said, especially since so many of the visuals are already iconic.

These prints were so cool that I had to share this story. Click the pic to see more of his art.
