Star Wars Velvet Painting
Yes, Steve Sansweet has his velvet Vader and I have mine! My aunt bought me this in 1978 and I have loved it ever since. Based on the Hildebrandt poster from 1977 there are some evident changes the artist made at the last minute (making it all more cheezy). Vader must have had eyes and eyebrows, but they were painted over, and the added, uneven, dot on the Death Star. Notice how Luke and Leia look like the current Kenner crop? You gotta love it.
