Empire Strikes Back 1979 Fan Club Portfolio Set W/3d Pewter Darth Vader Seal:
EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 1979 fan club portfolio set w/3d pewter Darth Vader seal
This is the 1979 Star Wars Empire Strikes Back fan club portfolio set, still in the original box, with 3D peweter Darth Vader seal on it and his visage on the boxes! There's a white mark on the cardboard where the seal was lifted. It's two 21"x 91/4' Ralph McQuarrie prints, one of C3PO & R2D2 in the rebel Hoth base, the other of the Millenium Falcon in the asteroid field in excellent condition. Both prints have in the bottom left corner “c. 1979 Black Falcon Ltd."
The Star Wars Wiki says that Black Falcon Ltd. was a subsidiary of Lucasfilm that was formed in February 1978 to handle the merchandising for Star Wars. Black Falcon was mainly used in 1979 on various merchandise items including books, cassettes, bed sheets, curtains and promotional photographs. Suzy Rice, who created the famous Star Wars logo, and Kathie Broyles together developed the logo for the company. The company was short-lived, however, and merchandise began to be licensed under the Lucasfilm name by the second half of 1979. On December 1, 1979, Black Falcon completely merged into Lucasfilm.
