Nintendo SuperStars Posters

by Michi Wed Aug 31, 2011 11:21 pm

Not quite sure where to put this, but I guess the best place for it is here.

Not too long ago, I picked up Vol. 1 of the Nintendo SuperStars magazine. It's basically a big collection of Star Power profiles from Nintendo Power. But is also has a very nice collection of posters inside. I liked quite a few of them, so I decided to take them out. Of course, they have holes in the middle where the staples were, so I scanned them into the computer at 300dpi and pieced them together, fixing the holes and creases. I'm going to print a few of them out and frame a couple of them and thought I'd share.

First up, Donkey Kong Country Returns:

Edit: As suggested, I've put all of these on a MediaFire account. Here's the link for this image:

Files are 11x17 and around 20mb each.

Star Power profiles? Are these real upcoming titles, or just artwork? (They do look impressive; the "Super Mario" poster with the faint raccoon shadow adds just a touch of nostalgia.)

If the files sizes are quite large, would you be averse to using public file-hosting sites such as RapidShare or MediaFire?
My scheduling skills have died of dysentery; I hope to visit at least on a monthly basis.
Still, don't forget to tip your waitress.

Yeah public file-hosting would work nicely~

I don't know why that didn't occur to me. I already have a MediaFire account. I guess I had a brain fart. Derp. Fixed.

Anyway, here's the next one for the upcoming Kid Icarus game:

I've already printed a couple of them out and put them up with some of my other posters. Thought I'd show you how nicely they printed out.

Here they are up on my wall:

And here are some close up shots. Sorry they're at an angle. There's just no good way to take these without getting some sort of glare :?

^ I got my frames at Wal-Mart of all places. Searched a bunch of different stores that carry a variety of frames, but none of them had 11x17 frames :? Couldn't believe I found them at Wal-Mart. They are a little less than $8 each. Not really all that great a price, but I just wanted black frames so they were just what I was looking for.

It's been a while, but I've finished off a couple more scans. There are a couple others from another magazine I plan on scanning, but I don't know when I'll get to that. Anyway, here are the next 3

Star Fox 64

Zelda Ocarina of Time

This one is oriented a bit differently than the others and I also lopped off the bottom boarder, so this is the only one that's not 11x17in. Instead it's 9.25x15.75in.
