You're in luck! That issue of STampede is on eBay at the moment. You know, I knew I'd seen it before but I didn't twig until now. In fact I almost bought it myself when that listing first appeared so good thing I didn't! (Click the pic)

I try. ;)

Mind you, there are plenty of copies of the boxed game on eBay, even a JAMMA board of the arcade original! I guess they're no good because they crop the art too much or are too small? I wonder who did the arcade bezzel (also for sale!), some of which Bob based his work from.
badflame must have gone to bed already. Hopefully this is some good news to wake up to, sir! :)

No worries, I enjoy helping out here and there where I can. :) Just let us know when you've finished the restoration; I'm sure we'd all love to see another brought back to life. Cheers!

It's as good as done.

My last restoration: "Striker"

It has not been the most complex, I have only deleted texts and have enlarged the left side of the image, which was cut and deformed.

Seconded! :thumbs:
Going back to what I was saying before, is the art on the game boxes themselves too small?
Also, when's the coffee-table book going to be published? ;)

Thanks for your kind comments, guys.

About the game boxes. Normally when scan at 600 dpi you win a lot of size, but... after is necessary soften the image to reduce the "moire", and resize to win focus again. So, in the best case, with a clean source, using a good scanner and an the appropriate edition, you can duplicate the original size (approximately).

About the book it's complicated. The problem is that all the illustrations are copyrighted. Perhaps I could convince Wakelin to publish an art book with all his work, later, when I recover all his lost work.
