This Friday, Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouseâ€™s collectible art boutique, will be offering up a new limited edition Star Wars print.
The good folks over at Mondo were nice enough to give Geeks of Doom an exclusive first look at the next poster in the series, titled “Sanctuary Moon,” by artist Daniel Danger.

The print will go on sale at the Mondo Shop some time this Friday, December 10, 2010, so be sure to follow @MondoNews on Twitter to find out the exact moment the sale begins. And take my advice: if you want this poster, watch carefully on Friday early in the day for the on-sale announcement and then buy it immediately. These limited edition prints at Mondo typically sell out in 1-2 hours, and sometimes even in 15 minutes!
The “Sanctuary Moon” screen print is 24″x36″ and will have a very limited edition of 230. One purchase allowed per household. The price is $50.
The setting for this artwork is nighttime on the Forest Moon of Endor (or Sanctuary Moon) from Star Wars: The Return Of The Jedi; an AT-ST Walker hovers over a few Ewoks, the moon’s furry inhabitants, who are standing amongst the mechanical remains of downed Walkers. In the background, another AT-ST is ready to strike; high above are the Ewoks’ torchlit treetop homes.
Here’s what the artist had to say about this new print:
i grew up on Ewoks, not Star Wars. thats a very odd statement to say, but until i was maybe eleven, i had no idea Ewoks were even related to Star Wars, the connection was just never made. chalk that up to the fact that the majority of my tv entertainment consisted of things taped off television on VHS. so i didnt have Empire, i had Battle For Endor because NBC aired it, mcdonalds commercials and all (â€™the hot stays hot and the cool stays coolâ€˜). my brother was the true enthusiast, his stock primary stuffed animals as a kid was Wicket and Paploo (he still has them at age 30), and they were worn into oblivion. for the sake of trivia, i named my primary stuffed bear a descriptive phrase: â€œbrown softyâ€, but it was not space related. but needless to say, there were alot of cardboard spaceships and tree forts at our house. little did seven year old me know there were alot of other plots we could have pretended our way through. no regrets. either way, when asked to do this print for Mondo/LucasArts, my decision was already made.
