I'm guessing nobody has a clean scan of MI2 poster without the title etc huh?

No, all of the posters in this thread are as clean as they ever will be until someone contributes even cleaner scans of the artwork.

Im trying to get a scan of the manual from this loom box
It seems to show a little more of the bottom half than the other scans from the other thread

also Glokidd may very well be posting a nice little scan of the MI2 FM-Towns advert, it might be interesting :)

THIS is probably the best we can get regarding the logoless MI2-artwork. It's a crop from the full-size original photo Steve Purcell took of his framed painting (this one has the frame, but is scaled down).

It might be good enough to paint the logo out though... but that's not on my to-do list right now.

I found the Grim Fandango mural quite interesting.

A really big hires version (+4000px) could be really interesting :-D

I just looked at my copy of the mural, unfortunately I dont think its much better than the mural shown here.
How is Maniac Mansion going? any luck with the face yet?

Very nice work! Thanks for the pics, I think I will make some posters in the following weeks :D
A question:
One of my favourite artwork is the picture at the back cover of the MI2 box.
Two links:

Are there any chances to the making a picture from it? (months or years :) )

If you can find the person who won the painting in the auction, and get them to take some scans or high res pics theres a better chance.

Well Ive managed to find out who the ebay user that won the item was, as well as the original seller, maybe someone fancies contacting him?
If you have a chance maybe it would sound better coming from you Laserschwert?

Sure, do you have the buyer's e-mail address?

(by the way, the seller was Steve Purcell himself, wasn't he?)

Indeed it was :) from what i understand he even contacted WMI to let them know it was happening :)

Recently I acquired an Japanese ad for MI2 Fm-Towns (thanks Petr :D )and at sanquinehearts suggestion scanned both sides at 300 dpi to post them here. The shot is quite busy, with a lot of text obscuring much of the picture but perhaps there is some little bit on it that might help.

Rapidshare links: front|Back

All and all though its just a neat thing to have scanned, i may use the front to make a poster with minimal alterations (just get the crease out basically)

I cant seem to download the back image,
Rapidshare seems to think that its invalid.
