Looking for an Ad - Die Hard Trilogy

Recommended Posts

I recently moved and in the shuffle of things to keep/things to lose, I mistakenly got rid of my big box of old GamePros and Sega Visions. Now that I know sites like this exist, I'm kind of kicking myself over it. I'm trying to reference something for a friend of mine but I can't find the ad anywhere on the internet and I know it existed as I had cut it out of one of the magazines.

There was an advertisement for Die Hard Trilogy, I believe showcasing it for PlayStation 1. It's not the ads already on the site (The "Prepare to get your mind blown" ones - not that). This one shows a guy in a Poloroid picture dressed like John McLane and he looks all burned and cut up, and on the white part of the picture-square, there's writing explaining that he was a stunt double or look alike. I think the whole ad was centered around something like "There's only one John McLane" or something. I'm looking for a good scan of this ad. All I know is that it was in GamePro and it was sometime around 1996 when the game came out. Can anybody help me?

I know the ad you're talking about. I'm not sure if I've got it or not, but I'll take a look through my collection and see what I can find. :)

Also, is there a spot in this forum where I can just look at old GamePros myself in a PDF or CBR format or something? I've looked the site over and all I can find is the Gallery which seems to be mostly covers and people saying on the forum that some magazines are available but I have no idea where. Can anybody direct me to a link or something if I can just find it myself? I'm kind of lost as of how the site actually works.

mDt, you've unfortunately stumbled into Retromags at a time of great transition, so there's a lot of stuff that isn't working/available at the moment but that will be soon. Doubtless you've noticed the tabs up top for Magazines, Games, and Strategy Guides don't do anything at the moment. :)

This thread is kind of serving as a backup for a lot of the content that isn't available right now, so that's where we're steering people who want to download at the moment:

There's a ton of old GamePros archived there as well as a lot of other stuff. That should hold you over until the Retromags 2.0 redesign comes through. :)

I remember this ad. It's something like John McClane #618273 or something.

The more I think about this, the more I think it's not an ad for the original Die Hard Trilogy, but an ad for Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas. More research required to confirm...
