Here's my poster of the Original Tekken on PS1, I got this whilst working at Game in York about 1999/2000.
The poster has a matt finish to it and is about 5 1/2 ft high.

Nice poster. Tekken 2 is my favourite part of the series so I'd love to have a poster of that game. Kazuya is my favourite character too though I suspect a poster of Devil would be slightly cooler :) .
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Did anyone follow up on the threat of a calendar? As it's that time of year I've just had a quick browse round the net for one but alas all I could find was a not very good German one...

Bought this subject up before for RG to do one but it unfortunately fell on deaf ears. :?

They always listen, its just that anything involving extra cost usually means the answer is no.

...Yes, I've just found the "Game Over" poster tucked away in an early issue - the reverse side actually shows the cover artwork from Issue 1 of Crash. Will take a pic if anyone wants to see it, just let me know. :wink:
