"We Must Be Cautious" Poster (Regular) by Mike Sutfin. Printed by DL Screenprinting. 24" x 36". 12-color screenprint on French Construction Whitewash 100# cover. Timed Edition from May 4, 11:00AM CDT until May 7, 11:59PM CDT. Ships worldwide, in August. $100.Publisher: Mondo

"We Must Be Cautious" is inspired by Luke and Obi-Wan's arrival at Mos Eisley Spaceport and Obi-Wan's iconic words of warning about this wretched hive of scum and villainy. The poster features other memorable Tatooine denizens, including Boba Fett, Greedo, Garindan, Ponda Boba, Arleil Schous, Momaw Nadon, R5-D4 and the real hero of the franchise, the GNK power droid.

This poster measures in 36 by 24 inches and will be offered in no fewer than four variations. The good news is that the standard version is a timed exclusive rather than a limited print run. It'll be available to order on the official Mondo Shop beginning on May 4 at 11pm CT and ending on May 7 at 11:59pm CT. The three variants (a blue sky version, a gold and silver foil version and a black and white version) will each be limited to 175 copies, with release dates to be announced later. All four versions are priced at $100.

"Faced with the vastness of the Star Wars universe and the fact the material within had been covered to the point of redundancy, I felt an immense responsibility to bring something different," Sutfin said in a statement. "I began considering the visual origins of Star Wars and the concept paintings created by legendary artist Ralph McQuarrie. Many of his preproduction designs were not specific to the plot, but they introduced a unique environment to set the tone and invite curiosity. Going forward with that mindset, I began sketching out a poster not based within the frames of the completed film, but from an imaginary page that fell from Lucas’ notebook or from a yet-to-be revealed extended scene.

Sutfin continued, "When I think about A New Hope, the most substantial point of the film is when Luke Skywalker commits to join Obi-Wan Kenobi on the path to fight the Dark Side and bring action to his words. My first viewing of this movie as a kid had a transformative effect, and I walked out of the theater with an energetic sense of direction and optimism. This piece is intended as a hanging reminder to all fans to trust their instincts and do what they feel is right (of course) as they walk out the door and fight their own battles.”
