Planet of the Dinosaurs Poster by Tino Aller


I thought that this poster was an interesting thing.

In the wake of the success of Star Wars, many studios took advantage and released movies to capitalise on the Sci Fi boom it created. Not all of them directly. This Lebanese poster of “Planet of the Dinosaurs” by Tino Aller shamelessly infringes on the copyright and clearly has X-Wings, Y-Wings and the Millennium Falcon.

The premise of this movie is simple. It is the far future, the reactor on a spaceship goes critical and the crew evacuate to the nearest planet with a breathable atmosphere. Unfortunately, the planet is inhabited by dinosaurs. The movie cost $1 million and most of the budget went on the effects. It sank without much fanfare, but the DVD release gave it something of a cult following. Check out this review on The Dusty Reel.

I’m not interested in the movie, but I’d like to add the poster to my collection at some point. As you can appreciate, a 1977 poster is hard to come by. 🙂

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
