Grim Fandango promotional stand
 
Back when Grim Fandango was in stores, a local game store featured this cool Manny cardboard stand in their stairway, promoting the game. Being the nerd I was, I had to ask them what they were going to do with it. The answer "throw away" was unacceptable, so I asked if I could get it instead. They said sure, so a couple of months later I walked away with Manny.

Last week, I got the stand into my new apartment. It's now standing in the corner of my bedroom. :D

The whole thing (about 1,5 meters high)

A detail of the text featured.

"An EPIC Tale of CRIME and CORRUPTION in the LAND OF THE DEAD, Starring Manny Calavera, as your travel agent of death". The upper right corner has a quote from PC Gamer: "Grim Fandango is the finest adventure game of all time"

I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures.

This, my friends, calls for a heist. I hope you've got this thing insuranced, because it certainly won't be yours much longer. Silly thing posting something like this on these boards :devil:

If you wake up killed one morning, and find your standup gone, it was me.

You two are late already. I already have it. Replaced it with a fake copy, hopefully Swordmaster will not notice.

Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels-esque extravaganza ensues...

Don't drop it off a bridge.

Oh noooo! Little Jake is going to make you wake up dead!!

What Swordmaster has failed to take into consideration is that on the next November 1, his standee will somehow find itself swiming in his toilet or the other closest body of water. ;)

That's a really neat promotional stand! Now, here's my contribution to this thread:

OK, so it's not QUITE as cool as the Grim stand, but still... ;)

I've got a Grim box that was produced at 2.5x the original size, but no standups :( I envy AG cardboard standups, like spaff's CMI Guybrush standup

I really have to start asking for this stuff when I see it in game stores...

Marek 02-07-2004 02:52 AM

I really have to start going to game stores.
