LucasArts Posters: The Revenge


Recommended Posts

I wouldn’t hold out much hope for those posters. I know that Ben was literally thrown in the dumpster out back when they moved offices, and that was a hand painted original! (It was rescued from the dumpster by programmer Graham McDermott and was up in Telltale’s office until Telltale closed — Graham was an early Telltale employee and wrote their dialog tool — and now I believe it’s in Double Fine’s office!, after being saved from telltales closure and sent there by some ex-Telltalers.)

 

Theres a thread about that Ben, from Tim!

Thanks to a VERY generous collector, more stuff is in the works. Behold:

On another note, I'd like to show some comparisons of what I mean by updating existing posters. The improvements in quality result from a combination of a) having access to better sources and b) havin

Regarding MI2 "The One" - posters...   - These were freebies given w/ The One (Amiga) Magazine, upon the release. - They were double-sided, as you can tell from the shitty photos.

That's awesome. I wonder how many other noble heists like that occurred. Bill Tiller made off with a CMI standee, which found its way to the Autumn Moon office during the very brief period of time that the studio had one.

I think the size of that standee indicates that the CMI sprites were designed at a much higher resolution (maybe even in vector, was that a thing in the mid 1990's?), which could make the game look great if there ever is a Special Edition!

(Hopefully made by a dedicated team like Double Fine, instead of the LucasArts interns who made the first two SE's.)

That’s wishful thinking! The CMI sprites were almost definitely drawn in pencil and scanned in to photoshop and colored. That means they were technically drawn at “infinite resolution” since they were drawn by hand, but not really drawn to be seen at cardboard standee size. That single animation frame was probably redrawn just to be put on a standee.
