hmmm... no problems here :( anybody else unable to get it? perhaps it was just a hiccup in rapidshare.de when you tried?

The downloads are both working for me... the poster though isn't :P The Japanese really know how to mess up a good artwork. :wink:

Sure... as soon as I have it (given that it's not coming out before December, that'll still take a while ;-) )

Well it appears they have sold out, I guess thats what they meant by limited, Oh well at least there is a poster in the hands of the resident poster guru :)

but seriously I can probably get this scanned in about three weeks on the university A3 scanner at 1200 dpi, when I go up for my summer course.
Failing that I'll be able to do it in september. I'll keep you all updated. I'd hate to see somebody scamming ridiculous amounts of money out of loyal fans on ebay for these things.
plus it will look great on the online poster collection :)

one more poster down :)

I also believe that the full throttle poster may be getting scanned very shortly.

I will keep you all updated

Yay, sounds good about the scanning... I wouldn't have a way to have it scanned.

Laserschwert I remember you mentioned that you were able to recognise the zak magazine cover as using your artwork because of somethings you could see in the image. would it be a good idea to do something similar to the Maniac Mansion poster scan to help users identify reproductions?
