Our good friends at Rebel Force Radio have just posted a fantastic interview with Derryl DePriest, who is authoring the highly-anticipated The VIntage Collection Archive Book. Give it a listen. It will be worth your time.
We hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. There are less than 20 days left in the campaign, and we’re closing in on the $150,000 stretch goal, which unlocks Kim Simmons’ reverse-side re-creation of the Star Wars is Forever poster!
This week Derryl has more interviews scheduled with team members who worked on the TVC line and D. Martin has been working on finalizing the design of the book’s dust cover. As you’ll see below, the design is inspired by the original Star Wars poster illustrated by Howard Chaykin. We felt it was a fitting image to represent our first book. While we still need to complete the color correction, add in the rest of the effects, and finish tweaking the layout, we wanted to give you an in-progress look. We’re also giving you the opportunity to decide which version of Luke Skywalker appears on the cover.
Below are two options and the details on why we’re considering the two different Luke figures. Please leave a comment and let us know which version you prefer. (more information HERE).
Dust Cover Option 1
A less accurate representation of Luke Skywalker (as seen in the poster) due to the Stormtrooper belt, but a more dynamic pose that better matches the poster art. The figure is from The Vintage Collection.
Dust Cover Option 2
A more accurate representation of Luke Skywalker in his farm boy attire (as seen in the poster), but the figure is from the Episode IV Commemorative Blu-ray set, which came out in non-TVC packaging during the TVC-era in 2011.
The 125K stretch goal has been met for The Vintage Collection Archive Book! But look what we’ll get if the campaign reaches $150K! Click through for details! This one is exciting folks!
It has exceeded $100K now! New stretch goals have been added to Star Wars The Vintage Collection Archive Edition Book. If it reaches the $150,000 goal, there will be a fantastic benefit added. Former Kenner photographer Kim Simmons will recreate his reverse-side masterpiece from the 1984 Star Wars is Forever mail-away poster using The Vintage Collection action figures and vehicles. The 18×22-inch poster comes folded in a mailer envelope, like the original.
