Weird Sega Saturn Items

Just recently I bought some weird Sega Saturn related stuff. Stuff, which I hoped to find in Japan, but actually didn't. The first item is some kind of... jacket where you can put sheets of paper (stuff for school, your insurance policy or documents regarding your divorce) in. It's printed with a very cool Virtua Cop image featuring the cops Michael Hardy and James Cools as well as a Virtua Cop logo and some screenshots. I am really happy, that I found it, because it's crap like that, which I really want. You can buy Saturn games everywhere and even hardware isn't too rare.

The second item I bought, was even weirder. The seller stated it as a "Sega Saturn Sales Promotion Tool". After receiving it, I noticed that it's some kind of... uhm... pennant, which the staff of shopping malls put onto the shelves to gather the consumers attention.

(Left: A bad scan of the thing. Right: The Sales Promotion Tool in action!)

It's some kind of very thin foil, with a gorgeous full color print on it, featuring the weird conehead from the Saturn commercials as well as Screenshots from Panzer Dragoon, Daytona USA and Virtua Fighter. Undoubtly the Saturn's biggest titles. Too bad I wasn't able to scan it properly, since it reflects the light so weird and thus it looks like grey on the scan.

As always, click the pics for a bigger view.

"Weird" is not enough to describe that stuff... Good finds, though :D

And "Tool" is definitely not the way either.... "Machinery" would be more appropriate I guess :D

Still, another impressive obscure Sega find. Congrats!

This is the sort of stuff I love! I've not got any Saturn stuff, but I do own a Dreamcast neon bar sign and an Arsenal Dreamcast shirt from when they were sponsored by Sega...

Excellent finds!
