Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Poster... Where Is It At?

Posted by Chuck | August 28, 2015 at 02:08 PM EDT |

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser one-sheet came and went through Disney Rewards pretty fast (but only as a reward item), but has yet to be officially put up for sale. Why not? Right now, the only place to find this is on eBay, but you have to make sure you don't get a reproduction (which are already running rampant). Luckily, the prices have dropped to reasonable, sub-$75 levels for an authentic one. But the question remains... why have we not been able to buy this yet from an official source! It's looking more and more like we won't have this option with the official one-sheet due out any time, so now might might be a good time to consider picking up the teaser poster! I myself have still been unable to secure this!
