Factors Posters Used as Kenner Store Displays
Seen here are retail posters released by Factors that have been branded with stickers bearing the logo of principal Star Wars toy licensee Kenner.

It's believed that Kenner purchased them in 1977, branded them in this manner, and sent them to retailers to use as store displays during the period in which Kenner's own signage wasn't yet developed.

In addition to the three examples seen here, a Kenner-branded version of Factors' Darth Vader poster is also known to exist.

As you can probably tell, all three of these items are encased in plastic sleeves for the purpose of preservation.

All three of these items were found in a Kenner shipping box containing similarly branded standees representing Chewbacca and Darth Vader.
