Tatooine Planetary Map
The Tatooine map shows a painted scene in the center from the exterior of Jabba's Palace, surrounded by various smaller, relevant paintings.
The reverse side of the map shows various toys from the line and can be viewed here (218k). It's interesting to note that some of the toys, such as the POTF Biker Scout Pistol, were never actually released under a Power of the Force logo.
Each of the smaller paintings have an accompanying text block explaining the image. Clockwise from the Desert Skiff on the top left:
- Desert Skiff
- Han, Luke and Chewbacca are held prisoner on one of Jabba the Hutt's Desert Skiffs hovering near the gangster's giant Sail Barge
- Lando Calrissian dangles precariously above the hideous Sarlaac Pit
- Sy Snootles
- Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band perform for the revelers in Jabba the Hutt's Throne Room
- An Imperial Stormtrooper confronts Luke, Obi-Wan, and C-3PO on their arrival in Mos Eisley
- Ben Kenobi
- Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi and Luke Skywalker listen intently to the desperate message presented by the hologram of Princess Leia Organa
- Luke Skywalker
- Luke Skywalker the young moisture farmer gazes into the horizon on the desert world of Tatooine
- Tusken Raider
- A ferocious Tusken Raider brandishes his weapon at Luke Skywalker in the desolate Jundland Wastes
- A group of Jawas, the nomadic scavengers of tatooine, load an unwilling R2-D2 into their battered Sandcrawler
- Princess Leia
- Princess Leia, dressed in the costume of a harem girl, is the reluctant guest of Jabba the Hutt and his sidekick Salacious Crumb
- Luke battles the huge Rancor in a pit below Jabba the Hutt's Throne Room
The final two border images are of an X-Wing and a Y-Wing. The painting of the planet has two arrows pointing to other planets in the SW Universe. The northerly arrow states "To Hoth" and the SW one "To Bespin". It is not known whether Bespin and Hoth were planned as Maps, but seems likely if the line had continued.
The text block in grey on the lower right states, in roughly the same layout:
THE PLANET TATOOINE
Characterized by vast deserts and glaring twin suns, Tatooine is the largest planet in the tatooine star system and the home of Luke Skywalker and his Uncle Owen adn Aunt Beru Lars. This inhospitable world was also the site of such historic events as Luke's first meeting with R2-D2, C-3PO, and Ben Kenobi; and later, the rescue of Han Solo from the gangster, Jabba the Hutt.
