Blast From the Past: Advanced PET Promo Booklet


Back when Mega Man Battle Network 4 came out, oh so many years ago, there was a lot of hype surrounding the release of the Takara's electronic Advanced PET.  Fueling the fire, we had these neat mini-booklets from Coro Coro Comics that showed off just what the device could do. There were plenty of images to be had; enough visual stimulation to get even the youngest of NetBattlers drooling in anticipation for the coolest toy of the year.

Because I'm a pack rat, I held onto one of these booklets. It's up there for your viewing pleasure. Bring back any fond memories?

Anyway, do hit the jump below for all the scans!




Bonus image! Here's a proof-of-concept version of the PET before it went into production. Keen-eyed fans will note a few superficial differences:



If anyone is interested, I've held onto nearly a gigabyte's worth of old Coro Coro scans with all kinds of neat stuff. I could toss 'em up here every now and then. Yeah?
