    I'm looking to get some standees on a college student budget. (i.e., I don't want to pay much more than $10 a piece.) I really don't care if I get popular stuff. The kitschier the better. Anyone know of any good Internet sites or stores in the NYC or Boston areas?

    heheheheh.... standees are those big, cardboard displays in movie theaters and video stores, advertising a particular movie.

    Colin-- I got one (Me, Myself, and Irene) from a local video store that was going out of business ($5... it can be seen on my HT page's VR tour). I've been told that the video stores are supposed to send these back to the studios, but if a store's going out of business, I don't think there's much incentive to send them back. [​IMG]

    I'm personally not a big Jim Carrey fan, but I thought it was sorta kitschy. [​IMG]

    Sorry I thought he just misspelled stands. I think my Mom has some older ones. Not sure which ones though. They are just collecting dust. I'll call her this week to see.

    Mike my Mom said she has some Disney standees. Don't know if you would be interested in them but she is going to check for others this weekend.
