Attack of the Clones IMAX® Poster For Sale to Star Wars Insider™ Subscribers

October, 2002 Bellevue, Washington. Fans who are current subscribers to Star Wars Insider magazine can purchase the Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones IMAX poster directly from the Official Star Wars Fan Club.

They will be shipped rolled in round tubes, then packed with bubble wrap inside triangular mailing tubes.

It's also great that this is the same double-sided Star Wars theatrical poster that will be in the theaters." Double-sided posters are printed with the front image reversed on the back to make them especially vivid when they're placed in a backlit display, such as a theatrical lightbox.
