Any chance of a Purcell ToMI poster print?

I understand the slipcover featuring Steve's art for the Tales Collector's DVD is exclusive, as in "can't-get-it-anywhere-else." But is the artwork itself exclusive? Along with other merchandising decisions to be made closer to release of the DVD, I was wondering if a poster print might be made available, or if there was some kind of weird licensing thing that prevented you from releasing one. I was gazing up at my newly-framed Sam & Max prints (Season One, Season Two, and Highway Surfing) and imagining how great it'd be to have a recent Purcell print of lovable Guybrush alongside them...

While I'm asking, too :D, is it likely that if a soundtrack is released, it'll feature exclusive artwork in much the same way the S&M soundtracks did?

Thanks, Telltale. :)

  • I hope it is exclusive to the boxart. Otherwise what would be the point in pre-ordering?

    ...getting thte art on your box?

    As a pre-order customer, I'd LOVE to be able to get the art as a print as well.

  • i'd love to see some monkey island merchandise..especially with steve purcell artwork. the cover artwork looks amazing so far...at least the small bits that were already revealed. i wouldn't mind, if everybody could get a print, but if the majority wants it to be "pre-order only"...no problem for me either.

    soundtrack would be nice also. i already have the mi cd-version tracks on my ipod, but did use only mediocre quality for the encoding and unfortunatly the cd is screwed, 'cause it was not the retail, but a cheap bundle version that came with some magazine.

    i just hope lucasarts will approve of some tomi merchandise and that their approval process is not to complicated and/or expensive...so telltale can do some items.

  • I wonder if Steve's covers for the first two MI games are for sale as prints.

  • I have a poster of the box art from the first game, but when I was a kid I made the mistake of using some greasy sticky tack on it to hang it on the wall, so... it's seen better days.

    You can make your own with these. :)

    Thanks! :D

  • laserschwert made these some time ago and they are quite famous. i still admire his photoshop skills.
    still, i would prefer the telltale prints...they have nice paper and the colors are amazing. i assume you won't get a quality like that elsewhere...for such a price.

    so, telltale, send someone over to lucasarts and get some merch licenses...there's money waiting to be spent here.

    p.s.: did you notice that there's only a one-letter-difference between money...and monkey? coincidence or intention...;)

  • That would be nice to have a print of the new coverart, from seeing the preview pics I could see that looking good on my wall framed.
