Ready Player One WOW Display

Ready Player One WOW display was designed to be impactful at retail while immediately conveying it as a recognizable and iconic piece familiar to movie, science fiction, fantasy, video gaming, and pop culture fans. The 12-foot tall theatrical type display was used as a beacon to communicate the home video release as well as an Instore Retail Experience.

The experience the display conveyed was very successful and was echoed through numerous social media posts of consumers engaging with the display at retail.

This display was shipped on a single full pallet of 48W” x 48”D x 52”T, yet when assembled, grew to 96”W x 47”D x 144”T.
