    Hey folks; I hope this is the right way of bringing this up. I'm hoping to track down a "new" print of this specific McQuarrie image. That eBay listing is basically what I want, and the price is right, but the print itself is used and lightly damaged, and I was hoping there might still be somewhere online that sells this kind of stuff in non-used condition--even if it means paying a bit more. The listing calls it "Print #10" but I don't know where that's coming from. Any ideas?

    I think the numbering might be from the ESB portfolio of his prints. I don't have that one but I do have the ANH one (nice set, btw, though the packaging on mine has seen better days.) Try a Google search with mcquarrie esb AT-AT print #10 as the keywords and you might find something. A lot of the first page of results was the same print in your link but I didn't go beyond that page. I did find a recent Spanish auction from back in June that was closed so they are still out there.

    Edit - there's a slideshow of the whole portfolio here.

    They should show up on EBay at some point. I bought them way back when the movies came out. My parrot got to a few of the prints years ago but I was able to replace them back in 2011 after findng a set on EBay.

    I found my ANH set at Forbidden Planet in London shortly after I moved here. Packaging was a bit ratty then but the prints are fine.

    Is it easier to find the whole set than just one specific print?

    It might be. They were originally sold as sets. I'd try that on eBay - see if you get any hits.
