Collectible Time #35: Gordon Archer Weetabix Star Trek--TMP and Sergio Grisanti Pacific Rim Posters

Now here's a rarity: a Weetabix Cereal, U.K. promotional poster by Gordon Archer for..."Star Trek--The Motion Picture"!!!

I obtained the '79 reproduction from Archer's son, Jon, and it's even signed by his dad!!!

The poster measures approximately 23" by 33" and offers stunning likenesses of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Stephen Collins and Persis Khambatta. I also like the detailed inclusions of the Enterprise, the Klingon Cruiser and Kirk-occupied Shuttlecraft, from the scene where Scotty grants him ample view of their refurbished lady. 

What a color!!! What a tribute!!!  (BTW: for more info on this superb print, visit...STAR TREK POSTER on FACEBOOK.)

And speaking of rare posters, my dear Facebook friend, A-jay Sphinx recently gifted me a wonderful "Pacific Rim" 14" x 20" commemoration by artist Sergio Grisanti, limited to a 1,000-run IMAX FANFIX promotion. 

The brawling image unleashes a distinct graphic-novel feel, while faithfully capturing the monster-melee majesty of Guillermo del Toro's masterpiece. (Gosh, the raw, visual thrust sure gets me psyched for the promised sequel!!!)
