Retro Scan #8: Forgotten Nintendo Poster

Jeeeez, it's been a while since I've done a retro scan. Probably about time I posted another one, yes? Yes? Okay.

Do I really need to mention that if you click that image, it will become larger? Learn to internet. 

It's amazing the kind of stuff you find while cleaning out garages; be it old toys or that forgotten stash of porno music magazines, there is something for everybody. When it comes to someone like me though, I'm on the hunt for retro goodlyness. I didn't actually find any retro games or hardware (that's all accounted for as far as I know), but I did come across this poster, weirdly enough in a box full of Tazos.

Where it comes from, and how long it's been there remains unknown, but my best guess would be from a magazine or even from a friend as I didn't get a N64 until last year, and I still don't own an original Game Boy (that's what my GBC and SP are for).

Either way it will make a nice addition to my wall, and it's now immortalised on the world wide web forever, or at least until the Google servers melt when the sun explodes.


  1. nice find! I saw a gameboy printer today on ebay and wanted to bid on it so bad. The printer and camera is one of those things I wanted so bad as a kid but never got.....siiiigh first world problems.

    1. If you do buy one, you'll want to make sure you stock up on the printing paper. It's not manufactured any more, meaning it's becoming something of a commodity.
