Back in 2nd of August 2015 when I saw the PIXELS movie for the very first time...

...I've seen that wonderful and huuuuge standee in front the entrance  :-*  :arrow:

...and I thought how cool this would be to have this such thing in my game room!  :P

This is not the first time I got such standee, I got a Tron Legacy one few years ago, remember here  :arrow:

(http://www.dragonslairfans.com/tron/Tron_Legacy_Standee_0.jpg) (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=2470.0)

So I contacted once again the cinema and explain to my contact my huge interest about the Pixels movie in general (I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!), and that standee specifically.
Few weeks later, I got the green light to pick it up!  :spaceace: UTOPOLIS Kirchberg Rulez!!!!  :spaceace:

Here we go, exactly one month later, 2nd of September 2015  8)  :arrow:

It's less then 10 minutes away from my work place...cool! 8)

He we are... the UTOPOLIS cinema complex, based in Luxembourg... the best complex around! I watch all the movies here since its opening, in 1996. Clean, secure, movies in original language version, and the best popcorn around!  :-*  :arrow:

So here am I, in front of the Standee...Christ, it's huge!!!
Cool... it's located in a discrete area... So I won't have to disassemble it in front of hundred persons!  ;D  :arrow:

I told you, it's really huuuge!  :o  :arrow:

Disassembling process...

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/pixelsthemovie/pixelsmovie_standee_13.jpg)

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/pixelsthemovie/pixelsmovie_standee_14.jpg)

It took me almost 1h30 to disassemble it. I wanted to be extra careful and take my time to figure out how to do it in the right order, without damaging anything.
Oh, and because I was alone on this adventure, I had to walk over the entire cinema complex three times (in/out) with huge parts  :oops:
But the job is done, and all the parts are now inside my car  ;)  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/pixelsthemovie/pixelsmovie_standee_15.jpg)

No more Pixels Standee there  :P  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/pixelsthemovie/pixelsmovie_standee_16.jpg)

Did you spot that one? How cool is that, huh!  :o  :-* :-* :-*  :arrow:

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/pixelsthemovie/pixelsmovie_standee_17.jpg)

I would kill to bring that to my daughter, but as you can guess, such stuff is not available...  :-\

Anyway, me extremely happy...  ;D

(http://www.arcadelifestyle.net/pixelsthemovie/pixelsmovie_standee_18.jpg)

...all the parts (and PIXELS posters bonus by the way!) are now safe inside my game room...

Next step, finding Nemo a spot for this Standee inside the game room and re-assemble the beast!  :)

Well, not easy to find free space for a such monster, but I fortunately have enough space at the moment inside the V1 game room, where I've just rebuilt the standee  8)

Really really really huge!  :arrow:

Of course, what else than Pac Man to put against that standee  ;D   :pac:  :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost:

I guess in a l8ter stage, I'll move the standee inside the V3, but for now... I love that Pac Man 'area'!  :-*
