It's nice, but I do wish the Jedi symbol wasn't there. It distracts a bit from the rest of the piece IMO, particularly since the image as a whole isn't Jedi-themed.

First thought of the official poster...That is really impressive. I am a big fan of the Celebration official posters and try to display them when I bring them home. This will be added to the current mix hanging in my house.

Poster is amazing. I don't understand the love of Phasma unless she (somehow) survived.

Yeah, not wrong. I wish she had better moments. Such a cool design and high hopes when first teased.
I hear rnbuda, some of the charaters we get so high hopes for and some how let down in the end. I guess it's the times or we just getting old lol.

I thought that was just Snokes ship she was on in the Last Jedi , didn't think they created a death star again.
Death Star 3 was was the Starkiller base planet n TFA. Then she was on Snokes ship "The Supremacy" when it mostly blew up.

I asked @acme archive if they could tell me when preorders would happen. Here is the reply:

"That announcement will happen sometime later this week or early next week. Still getting thing together with all of the artists that are a part of the Celebration release.

Thanks for the message"

I saw the Feb 27th date listed in the Acme Dark Ink email. Very surprised we haven't seen the art yet. Hopefully, within the next day or two we get it, so we can plan accordingly.

I agree. I like to see the art and have time to consider. (and talk my wife into more wall space...)
