I've seen many pictures from BR, but I don't believe I've ever seen this particular one. Is this a discovery, or am I the last one who hasn't seen this still?

I've had a nice glossy print of that one for years man. It's hanging in my studio.

I actually saw this up for sale on ebay. You'll have to take up the issue of reversing the shot with the seller ..

Reversing the shot is quite common in movies.
Simple trick that sometimes pays off.

Boba Fett is reversed in Jedi when he aims at Boush. I always wondered why. Actually he is correct, reversed when he aims then lowers the gun, then correct again. Finally saw the original trailer for jedi and it shows it without him being reversed. They reversed it because the way it was shot it would have looked like he was aiming and looking in the wrong direction. His standing look is right but when he aims it looks like he is aiming the other way, so they flipped it.

Many of these promo shots come from slides. They will then print as many as they need from those original slides. Sometimes they don't pay attention or care enough to check to see if the slide is facing the right way or not, when they print them. Maybe they even will print them both ways hoping people will think it is an all new shot and buy both.

They'll do it for many reasons, but that's what my Father always pointed out in movies or posters/pics: was it a flipped one or not? Wink
With fans like us, it's difficult to pass it as a "real"...
