This is a lobby card promoting the release of Mad Max 2 in Spain, where the film was subtitled El Guerrero de la Carretera (The Road Warrior).

The lobby card features two Marauders, members of a ragtag group of tribes led by Lord Humungus.

One of the Mad Max franchise's enduring legacies is the make-up, costume and prop design which drew upon the punk culture of the late 1970s and early '80s.

This lobby card is a good example as it shows one of the extraordinary vehicles made for the film and two of the leather-clad and heavily studded Marauders. Behind them stand two members of the Bad Cops.

While not explicitly developed in the film, the Marauders comprised a number of smaller tribes – the Bad Cops, Skinheads, Punks and Smegma Crazies – each with its own distinct look.
