    The RotS teaser was by far the best of any of the PT posters, teaser or theatrical. It was a real thing of beauty, very moody and effective. I suppose to compensate, RotS had the worst theatrical poster. Deciding between TPM and AotC in the theatrical department is dificult. They both have their strong points. TPM's fits very well with the mysteriouss aspect that surrounded the movie; it evokes that first teaser trailer, where we didn't know what was going on. AotC's matches up much bettter with its film, I think, and as the added bonus of getting something of the serial feel, particularly in the Anakin+Padmé feel, the kind of cheesy romance angle. I think overall AotC's may be better, though TPM's theatrical will always have a certain nostalgia for me.

    I love the TPM teaser image. Very simple, but effective, with the young Anakin casting a looming Vader shadow. I also find that I prefer the TPM theatrical trailer over the other two, especially the end of it.. Very Star Wars. =)

    Isn't it funny how Jar-jar is just randomly inserted into the TPM Theatrical Poster?

    I love the AotC theatrical one. Its ACTION+ROMANCE and it captures everyones good sides. And Mace Windu is hardly on it.

    The TPM teaser with young Anakin and vader's shadow is far and away the best poster image IMHO

    I like the AOTC teaser poster the best. The use of colors, composition and tagline(s) foreshadow Anakin and Padme's doomed relationship beautifully. I get the same feeling of inevitable doom from the TPM poster though, but I like the one of AOTC just a bit better.
    I didn't quite like the ROTS teaser poster.
    When I first saw it, I was like "WTF is THAT?!" Then I finally noticed Anakin in the corner, and even later I realized that it was his cape that formed the mask. I like the concept of the poster, but not the execution of it.

    My favorite theatrical poster is the one of AOTC. It just looks epic, with Anakin and Padme central, just like their story in the movie, and the Clone Wars in the backdrop.
    TPM's poster is cool too. The young Anakin in the middle, and the bright lights behind him really gives me the feeling of standing at the beginning of something big. :) Darth Maul's face looming in the background is cool too.
    ROTS' theatrical poster didn't do much for me. The drawing is fantastic, as it is on all the posters, but I feel there are too many characters on the poster, and Darth Vader is certainly not needed. IMO, the poster could've been cooler with just Anakin and Padme, Obi-Wan and Palpatine on it, because the story is mainly about those characters. If they really wanted Vader's mask on it, they could've put it in the background, looming over the characters like Darth Maul on the TPM poster.

    Just my 2 cents. :D

    Teaser: 1. ROTS 2. AOTC 3. TPM

    Theatrical: 1. AOTC 2. TPM 3. ROTS

    I can't put my finger on it, but the ROTS poster just doesn't look as good as the other ones.
