POTF Foam-Core Logo Mock-Up
This is a handmade sign for use at Toy Fair in 1985 and was once the property of a Kenner salesman. It measures 26" long and is 11" tall at the peak. It is mounted on 1/2" thick foamcore and is covered with black felt on the back. Velcro tabs are in place on the back for attachement to a wall display. The red pinstripes were cut out and glued on separately. The photo of the hands/saber is most likely a blow-up from pre-existing artwork and is attached separately as well. The Power of the Force text was created by masking out the individual letters on the white base color before the black background was painted. When the masking letters were lifted, what remained was the black outline of paint and the original white background. Probably the most impressive thing to note is that the Star Wars lettering was airbrushed on mylar and glued down individually. Airbrushes can be great for giving the illusion of a metallic look and that's exactly what the lettering has. From a distance of only a couple of feet you really cannot tell that it's handmade because they did such an excellent job on it.
