A set of blueprints were published by Ballantine late in 1977 with a cover price of $6.95. They printed millions of copies, hoping to cash in on the phenomenon as one of the very few licensees at the time. They had so many leftover, in 1983 they put orange stickers saying "Return of the Jedi" on them so they could sell more. They still had so many leftover, you could get them at places like Odd Lots in the early 1990's for 50 cents a set.
