|Darth Vader Screamin' Model Box Layouts|
|The prototypes in this series are all original artwork, layouts, and proof sheet for the Screamin' Model Company's line of Star Wars models released in the early nineties. These represent some of the first prototypes to emerge from the "Dark Years" of Star Wars collecting - the period between the demise of Kenner's action figure line and the release of the Heir to the Empire novel.|
Above a layout for the Vader box front. To make a layout, the designer basically cut and pasted pieces of art, text, and photography onto a mechanical board. Some layouts also include a transparent sheet with more cutouts pasted to them. Handwritten instructions are sometimes scrawled on the top tissue paper overlay, detailing corrections, additions, coloring, and other such instructions. Though it's hard to tell from these photos, all the text is on a transparent film in front of the picture.
