I know game stores in Japan often put out old posters for people to take for free. I have several. They're not framed or hung up, rather still rolled up in tubes, but I have an awesome Sega Rally poster. I may sell or ebay some of my game store posters since they're all Saturn and Dreamcast stuff. I just need to inventory them.

I can only guess. Anything remotely putting a thorn in the companies ass for no profit isn't gonna happen. For the amount of material we get in, across the whole store, it would be quite a hassle to distribute it. Demand for twelve foot Spiderman or Transformer standups could lead to bribery. Customers not getting what they want would cry favoritism amongst employees (duh). A lot of displays are screwed, glued and nailed together so they stay set up just so, and are unfit for a child. Some displays are granted space by a manufacturer who pays for that, and part of their deal is the destruction after the display period. It is far easier to blanket it, "Destroy it all."

The affordable ones aren't very big either...


Well, I bought the Seth Fisher remembrance print for $20. It was 15" x 22". There are few others under $100 with that size, but if you like art like me, you'll love them. I plan on getting a few more, they really add something to the room.
