“The Star Wars saga continues”…
“Bobba Fett – Bounty Hunter” Factors Inc of California, USA were responsible for some of the best officially authorised commercial tie-in posters, that have gone on to become very collectable in their own right. The fan favourite Bounty Hunter Bobba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) is featured on this promotional Star Wars: Episode V – Empire Strikes Back poster from 1980.
