It's nice to see that Star Wars got a nice nod of recognition of its first Birthday in 1978, in the form of this poster of a birthday cake surrounded by the action figures that made them all so very rich! While it looks like Luke is 'giving the finger' from what I remember a lightsaber actually extended from his arm. 

 The extremely rare poster was only sent to cinemas still showing Star Wars a year after its initial release making this one of the rarest original posters out there. I'd like to see it as a reissue at some point, it's quite a sweet little poster and it features 11 of the 12 original action figures from the first wave. 

Estimated value is $1,000-2,000 from Heritage Auctions with the date of the auction set for the 28th.
