    IDK if you meant to buy or to download, but if you can find some hi res scans, use http://www.blockposters.com/ to easily make your own.

    Buy them, I only want official stuff [​IMG]. They come from the game shops in Japan, but I can't find them on eBay :/

    Interesting, I use to collect them too. I had Shenmue, Soul Calibur, Dead or Alive 2, 3 etc.. More around the Dreamcast time. I agree though, your best bet is E-bay. There use to be a user who sold many of these, but sadly he closed shop over a year ago.

    Sometimes game shops such as Gamestation are willing to part ways with there promotional posters. Ask around in shops, you never know.

    Good Luck.

    Here's a couple I have, Out of Print too;

    Nice [​IMG]. A few days ago, I e-mailed the guy who was selling the posters from my OP and apparently he goes to Japan every 2 months and then stays there for 2 months. When he comes back he should have a healthy supply of new stuff, so probably gonna get some there [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm sure you will have so many you won't know what to do with them [​IMG] Actually talking about what to do with them, I'm quite partial to the odd promo poster too [​IMG] When I wanted to collect promotional posters I always had a search prepared on ebay international Japan. It is a good way to find newly listed items of interest.


    @apb407 - A cut out?

    It reminds me of when I had a full size stand up of Kilik, or was it Sophita.. I can't remember, Kilik was my favourite character from the Soul Calibur series, but... Hmmm.. I think it was Kilik [​IMG] I sold it a long time ago though, but kept the promo posters. Of course, then I started looking into statues/figurines, like the ones you see on my sig. [​IMG]

    eBay international sucks if you're looking for actual stuff from Japan. Yahoo Auctions is much more popular here.

    EDIT: That is on Yahoo.co.jp of course.
