Rayman Hoodlums' Revenge GBA - Magazine Advert

Post by Sevy »

I happen to have a (possibly rare? I say that because I cannot for the life of me find one anywhere to exist....) A4 magazine advert that was in one of my Dandy comics circa 2005 (approx). I have it safely stored away, but I also have it scanned in as a photo. If its of any use to show anywhere?

In the wiki there are some articles that show promo art/ads from magazines, so it would be great to have that scan uploaded to the wiki, specially if it is rare.

Come to think of it, if it was in the Dandy in 2005, I surely have it somewhere too! I now vaguely remember seeing it...

I personally prefer the ads that use unique artwork over the ones that reuse the box art, however it is always good to have these. Thanks for posting the image!

Oh...flip..
I thought I wrote that in the first paragraph saying the box cover is used....I must have missed it off..... and likewise. But you're welcome all the same. ^^

It's cool to be able to see more of the cover here. It's the same exact render as on Rayman 3's US cover, except with the Heavy Metal Fists replaced with normal fists, the "r3" text on the foot removed and the background changed. This image makes it clear that even the black Lums in the background are unedited -- instead of blending into the new background, they still have the same dark blue hue as on the R3 cover and don't blend into the new turquoise background at all :p

Well spotted! I would never have noticed that, but now you mention it it's really obvious. But hey, this even made it into the box art, so I guess nobody at Ubisoft or their marketing partners noticed it either. :P
