Here's a large 22" x 36" Virtual Boy double-sided poster that hung in a Blockbuster during the system's rental phase.

P/N 33394 with an official Nintendo seal of quality.

This one's getting framed! :)

That is a good size, nice find!

Side note: I've never understood why they used that image so heavily. That's a terrible photo for promoting the thing, makes it seem like they didn't give a damn at all. It just looks so amateur, it's either very half assed or they gave that one to the "C" team.

I take it the other side looks precisely the same as this one?

I hear you on that, I never understood it myself.

Yes, it's the exact same image on the opposite side.

Also, I forgot to mention that it's made from thin cardboard, not papper.

No problem at all... thank YOU for running my favorite website! 😁👍


Here's a picture of the poster in a temporary frame. Due to the pandemic that's currently taking place, I'm unable to get it framed professionally, so this will have to do for now.
