As some of you probably already know, the tenth anniversary of the Nintendo 64′s release in the United States is this Friday
, September 29th. So in celebration of that event, I've dug up and scanned up a cool 12″x17″ fold-out catalog poster for "N Gear" that originally came with the Nintendo 64 console in 1996. If you loved the Authentic Sega Gear
, then you're going to love this. Be warned that the full resolution size for both scans is much larger than usual since the poster is rather big (I wanted you to be able to read the item descriptions).
There's so much to digest on this poster that I'll leave the commentary up to you, aside from one thing: denim shirts and caps must have been way more popular in the mid-1990s than I ever realized at the time. Oh, and also that I want the B. Orchid poster. As you know, nothing says "N64″ quite like absurdly perky polygonal breasts. And Killer Instinct
So did anybody out there actually order any of this stuff? What are your favorite / least favorite items on the poster?
