Pick Up A Vintage Action Figure Poster At Five Below

JTA reader Paul G. picked up this cool Vintage action figure poster at his local Five Below. There are so many things wrong with this poster that it seems so right! Most of the figures don’t have weapons, and many of those that do have the wrong ones. Not to mention the super-sized Ewoks and an Ugnaught that looks like he took growth hormones as a youngling. Vintage charm? You decide! Click below to have a look!

While out shopping this evening, I came across an incredibly cool poster that was an immediate purchase for myself at Five Below (for $5.00) as I am a self-confessed Kenner Star Wars junkie. It appears that these images (also used for the Topps Card Trader app) have numerous issues that add to its charm including inappropriate accessories (my favorite being Squidhead’a cloak on Lando), incompleteness and obvious wear. It is almost as if someone cleared out their vintage Darth Vader carrying case of figures, took some random photos on colored backgrounds and made a poster of them.
