“Father: Encounter on Dagobah” Star Wars Print by Tomer Hanuka (Onsale Info)

The Alamo Drafthouse will drop the newest print in their Star Wars series later today.  Tomer Hanuka’s “Father: Encounter on Dagobah” is a 17″ x 25″ screenprint with an edition of 350.  Here is what Tomer had to say about the image:  

“The central idea going into this image was depicting planet Dagobah itself as a portrait of Luke’s subconscious in it’s most interesting and unformed phase. In a nightmarish sequence, Luke runs into the mist where he thinks he saw Vader. Luke finds him and a lightsaber duel ends with Vader’s decapitation . The mask cracks open on the severed head, exposing the frozen face of a dead Luke Skywalker. The suggestion here is that somewhere within Luke’s psyche there is a potential for ultimate evil. Luke’s greatest challenge isn’t the Galactic Empire and it’s endless, faceless troopers, but the magnetism of the dark side; the seductive idea of choosing his own potential for power over everything else.”

This goes up today (Thursday, July 29th) at a random time.  Keep your eyes on Mondotees.com.

  1. sorted….3 for 3 so far…

  2. Yeah it went through, just hung at the progress bar for a bit.
    High five all you 3 for 3ers!

  3. @Tony: Yeh, the link in the email didnt work for me either, but if you just chopped out the junk part of the URL it took you to the product, thats all I did.

  4. Well 3 for 3 so far. I hope I get the entire series, because my friend will go nuts when I give her these posters for her birthday next year.

  5. +1 Wish it was the same size as the other two… guess I’ll mat it!

  6. Picked this one up but didn’t get the other 2 so far. Looking forward to Stout’s one.

  7. 3 for 3, and my smoothest transaction yet. The changes to the cart system have greatly improved the process. I know they have been in place now for a couple of drops but still want to give credit where it is due.

  8. Yeah that was smooth as silk, which is becoming the norm (even for crazy shit like the Olly Star Treks). Very cool Justin.
    20 left in stock says the twitter. I give it 5 more minutes and we conclude another awesome week for prints. 🙂

  9. Haha by 5 minutes I meant 5 seconds. Gone and gone.

  10. I’m 3 for 3!

  11. +1 Beautiful!

  12. This one was gone in about 30 mins, I am imagining a print by Stout, Danger, Moss, or McCarthy would be a crazy dash to get them. Hopefully I can manage to stay on top of these

  13. +1 so psyched, not sure where I’m going to put it though :O

  14. Erm – am I the only person in the world not feeling this?

    Apparently. Horses for course innit…

  15. I got my first, but great as it is, I really would prefer to collect the Star Trek. does anyone want to swap my “Encounter On Dagobah” for Star Trek Space Seed or the Tribbles posters or even the Moon Variant?

  16. shit i just noticed Darth Vader there in the back! amazing.

  17. It is nice to see someone’s lack of originality mesh so well with their lack of artistic talent.

  18. I with you Mat P. I don’t get all the hype over this print. Its okay at best IMO.

  19. i was so excited when i heard about this star wars line…they really haven’t pushed the envelope with what they where given. these have been disappointing.

  20. man you guys will buy whatever is shoved down your throats, even these lame star wars posters
