Geekfest Rants Ep. 370: Vader Poster - Enterprise XCV-330

Today on GeekFest Rants, for our poster of the month, we are focusing on the original Factors Darth Vader poster.  This might be the first officially licenced Darth Vader poster ever. If you were a fan of Star Wars back in 1977, chances are you might have had this poster in your bedroom wall. 

Join Carlos as he looks at the history behind this iconic poster.  From the design, the other ones available from that line, and the man behind the mask, Kermit Bryce Eller, who ended up touring the country as Darth Vader for special promotional events.  Then we jump to the Star Trek Enterprise XCV-330. 

This is an amazing Eaglemoss miniature that depicts the legendary never before seen (in operation on TV or film) precursor to the more familiar Enterprise models.  Yet, you might have seen a painting or sculpture of it on Star Trek the Motion Picture or Star Trek: Into Darkness.
