AN 'EMPIRE' AT 35: OF FUTURES AND FIREPOWER!
An EPISODE IV young and (so far) unafraid Luke Skywalker stands ready, lightsaber activated, for the onslaught of Darth Vader and his Imperial legions, in this very cool unused poster art concept by Tom Jung for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, sometime from late 1979. Note the early idea of wedged-winged TIE fighters (later becoming the familiar TIE Bombers eventually seen on Jung's classic 1980 poster)- a visual idea metamorphose into the TIE Interceptors that'd appear in their multitudes by RETURN OF THE JEDI.
Welcome to the first entry of AFICIONADO's 35th Anniversary celebrations for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
