RARE Cloud Strife Standee Display, Original Final Fantasy VII (FF 7)Promo, Pepsi
You are viewing an incredibly rare piece of promotional material from Final Fantasy VII and Pepsi. This Cloud Strife Standee is made from cardboard, and was a promo in collaboration with Pepsi for the original release of FF7 on PlayStation. For some curious reason, Pepsi removed Cloud's signature sword from all of their FFVII advertising, and can be seen in the promotional cups and the small tabletop version of this standee as well. This standee has been in my family's possession since its original use. It was on display at a movie theater, and was brought home once the theater was done with it.
Image 9: Cloud's right foot has some wear and forward curling on the tip, with some white showing in the curl creases. Image 10: Cloud's left foot is significantly bent and worn, due to the fact that the standee's construction puts most of its weight leaning on that foot. There are prominent creases and heavy curling on the toe, with some white showing in the creases. There is a dent in the edge of his upper boot that caused a small bit of wrinkling. The stand in the back is sturdy and sound, and the standee stands freely and well, however the design of the standee puts the stand far off the one side, causing Cloud to lean heavily to his left, curling his foot forward.Restoration: The original tape holding the top and bottom together dried out and has been carefully removed as much as possible and newly replaced. Some careful color touch-ups have been done around the edges to reduce the appearance of the white edge of the paper.
No attempt has been made to touch up the discoloration or white spots in the body of the image. No attempt has been made to press the piece to flatten it, though I'm sure both could be done. At the bare minimum, I would recommend reinforcing the backs of Cloud's feet, or they may continue to curl and bend, and he may eventually no longer be able to stand. My personal recommendation would be to press it, and either frame it or mount it on a wall.
